Internal Medicine - Nephrology & Dialysis

In brief: See Nephrologist

3 levels of protein in urine: microalbuminuria--less than 300 mg a day tubular--300-1000 mg a day nephrotic--more than 3500 if there is blood in the urine you may have a glomerulonephritis and this may be a very serious condition that causes rapid loss of kidney function.
In general the more protein in the urine the worse the prognosis. There are too many diagnosis to list. You need a workup.
