Does gatorade cause protein in urine? I took a urine sample today and my doctor told me to stop drinking it. What are other causes of high protein?

In brief: Confusing!

Gatorade isn't a protein drink.
Protein drinks do not cause protein in the urine. I've not heard of gatorade, which is convenient electrolytes in water, causing proteinuria. Misunderstanding? The most common cause of protein in the urine is some people who get this from standing -- check the first-voided morning urine. If it's up, your physician will want to check further.
