Xanthoproteic Test For Proteins
I had a upep test done and all the result says is protein quantitive 22.1 mg/dl What does this mean?
Proteinuria: My interpretation of that result would to consider that amount of proteinuria as very mild and doesn't suggest significant kidney damage. However we don't see the breakdown of the types of protein(qualitative) in your report. Your ordering physician,who knows all your findings, is best qualified to answer your question. ...Read more
I had hemoturia for a month and its not clear why when i had taken all possible test's but i was wondering if protein has to do any with it, or diet?
Kidney and Bladder : Hematuria is bleeding in urine. Two things to ponder / look for 1. Is is isolated meaning is it only blood in urine or 2. Is it also accompanied by protein ( proteinura). It is seldom related to diet or protein in diet unless you are eating lot of beets or foods that can color body secretions there are many causes of heamturia . I would start with an appt with pcp ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tests for clotting: People whose blood tends to clot excessively can have deep vein thrombosis (clots in veins in the legs or abdomen) or pulmonary emboli (clots that travel to the lungs). A deficiency of protein c or protein s, among other things, can cause excess clotting. Tests for protein c or s are used to diagnose levels of these proteins in the blood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Proteinuria: Have a 24 hour urine collection to see the amount of protein in the urine and to assess your kidney function. I would also do a renal ultrasound to assess the size of the kidneys. Depending on the amount of proteinuria, i would send off blood for aso, anca 2, complement c3 and c4, hiv, hepatitis b antibodies, hb a1c and ana. A renal biopsy may also be needed for a diagnosis and a prognosis. ...Read more
Posib. renal disease: First rule out orthostatic proteinuria (only present when up and about) repeat urinalysis first thing in am, after emptying bladder about 2 hrs after going to bed. No concern if am urine is protein free. Otherwise best to consult a nephrologist to rule out & if necessary to treat glomerulonephritis, or nephrotic syndrome if ankle swelling +/or eye-lids puffy. ...Read more
On a recent blood test my protein came back low what are ways that I can raise it? And what does this affect?
What can cause a never before seen high protein level in the yearly blood test of a healthy 58 year old male?
Unclear question: If you are talking about total serum proteins, it may be because you were dehydrated due to not drinking water for the fasting blood test. The other major cause is increase in gamma globulins due to inflammation or tumor of the plasma cells. The starting point of the investigation would be serum protein electrophoresis.

I got a Total protein test and it was 8.9 normal range is 6.3-8.2. I have raynolds disease and my Dr ordered an SPEP test what does it mean?
SPEP: SPEP stands for serum protein electrophoresis. It is commonly used to separate out and identify abnormal protein in the blood called M-protein. Increased level of M-protein can be caused by infection, inflammation or cancer such as multiple myeloma. Myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells in bone marrow, which can produce excessive monoclonal M-protein detected by SPEP. ...Read more
I suffer from Stage 3A CKD, would a short (10 day) change in diet, including more protein and sodium, skew test results? Test was 5 days later.
My little boy has been ill for 7 days, now showing blood and protein in his urine, should I be worried? he is being referred now for further tests
Nephritis: Blood and protein are not usually found in the urine. The presence of these cells indicates an inflammatory disruption of normal kidney function. There are several causes of this, and further testing will shed light on the level of seriousness. Try to stay calm during the evaluation process. Your doctor will let you know if or when it is time to worry. ...Read more
Can your protein level come down in a microalibium test? And what is the difference between that and regular dipstick? Would protein show up in both
Proteinuria: Urine protein detected by dipstick in current practice identifies Albumin and misses positively charged proteins such as myeloma (monoclonal) proteins. In most situations microalbuminuria will not lower serum Albumin since te liver easily compensates. This is the "pathological" response that actually results in the associated derrangements seen clinically in pts with proteinuria like high lipids. ...Read more
