I had urinalysis done and 30 plus protein is in urine and back pain. What could cause protein in urine? Kidney failure?

In brief: Many things

this test detects normal amounts of albumin frequently as 30 mg/dl.
I suggest a first morning void, if elevated then check a protein/creatinine ratio. Nephrology consultation may be needed, Causes, glomerulonephritis, interstitial disease, myeloma, infectin, nephrotic syndrome, diabetes, hypertension. A long list requiring medical attention to sort
