In brief: Proteinuria

If you're not getting a 24hr sample, a simpler test is to measure the amount of protein/gr of creatinine in a random sampled urine.
Normal is (in most labs).

In brief: He's right

Some protein is normal in the urine.
It comes from the tubules, bladder, and very little from the glomerulus which is the part you may be worried about. Just do a protein to creatinine ratio. No need for 24 hr urine collection.
