In brief: Find the cause

If you've been found to have trace proteinuria, don't worry.
If you have +1 proteinuria and no symptoms, your physician may work you up -- the first step is to see whether it's present in a morning urine produced entirely while you're lying down. If this is free of protein, you have orthostatic proteinuria and need not worry. If you're diabetic, the rules are different. Best wishes.
