In brief: Proteinuria

Early kidney disease can be detected by testing the urine for protein/albumin.
There are many causes of proteinuria as this is called and your kidney doctor will help try to determine the cause and then suggest a treatment. Common treatment is blood pressure control.Also avoiding further harm to kidney function by avoiding otc medications like aleve, (naproxen) advil, Motrin etc.
