In brief: Poss. renal disease

First suggest you rule out orthostatic proteinuria.
Benign proteinuria from being erect. Set alarm for 2 hours after bed, empty bladder, then collect first am specimen. Home free if recumbent specimen negative. Strenuous excercise, stress & dehdration benign. Otherwise need to rule out renal diseases e.G glomerulonephritis, collagen diseases, drugs, infections, diabetes, sickle cell & rare others.

In brief: Agree with Dr. K

It is imperative that hypertension and diabetes be excluded as the cause of this low level protein and RBC in urine.

Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.
