Pediatrics
In brief: Varies
Protein makes its way into pee thru several sources.
If it spills from the kidneys it can be a kidney defect or infection if the sample is obtained after the kid has been standing for a while, small amounts can occur. If squirted out by a little girl in a cup, it likely contains some skin & vaginal wash.Interpretation depends on multiple factors you can discuss with your dr.
