the amount of protein in your diet should not effect the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> level <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> that much, unless you are taking extra <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> like Body Builders use protein supplements. I don't have MS, but I don't think this sounds like an MS thing either. Some illness causes the body to make too much of certain proteins that can then show up in the blood.
I went to the OB/GYN this week and they told me that I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> level <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my urine. I was told to do another test, which resulted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the same thing. They told me to make an appointment with a urologist. I am a very healthy person with no high blood pressure. Could it just mean that I am dehydrated? She told me I needed to drink more water. I am a little worried because everything on the web talks about kidney disease. What about maybe getting a second opinion?
I had some blood work done and the only thing that was abnormal was that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> level was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span>. I don't remember how <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span>, I didn't really think much of it because my doctor told me not to. She couldn't think of anything involving it being high that would affect someone my age. I'm still tired though and having a hard time functioning. I can sleep for 12 hours and still need a nap by the time a few hours of being awake have passed. I'm not really sure where to go from here.
Which is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> ur urine and it also cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> bp. They will do many cath samples of urine and if it gets to bad the will induce labor. but they monitor u because if ur bp becomes a problem they can give u meds in ur iv when u deliver to bring it down.
Has anyone else been told that their <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s were <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span>? My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> pressure was still fine but they are concerned that my proteins were higher then what is the normal. I'm trying not to stress out over it because that makes your blood pressure go up but it's not helping out too much at the moment. I've actually been told most of my life that my protein levels were higher, any ideas how to reduce them too?
chronic inflammation or infection (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> some cases HIV and hepatitis) and some diseases of the bone marrow. But you can't generalize. Sit down and talk with your doc.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> pressure is th main culprit. kidneysOrbit could be you have an infection and your kidneys aren't filtering properly.
There are very many causes for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a dog's urine, the most common being diet - though other causes can be more serious. I would start writing down everything you are feeding her, including all treats, and then pass this information on to your vet when you next see them.
It depends how <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span>...with my first my pressure and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s increased slowly from wk34 to wk38, by wk38 they induced me because my levels got too high for comfort...Baby was considered full term, So there was no reason to risk me going into full eclampsia.
My Rheumatolgist did some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> and urine work and found <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span>. She rechecked it immediately and those results were normal. She waited 3 months to check them again, and they were abnormal again. Now I am headed to a blood specialist, and have no idea what is going on! If anyone has some clue, I would appreciate it.
Hi. Are the elevated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your urine persistent? When was your last urinalysis done? Did the latest urinalysis result show any increase in blood and protein levels ? How severe are the proteinuria and hematuria ? proteinuria and hematuria usually suggest kidney involvement. At this point, it is best that you be assessed along this line. For nephrotic syndrome, your total cholesterol levels and blood pressure should be evaluated.
3 is higher than the range, this small hike is clinically acceptable and usually does not indicate a disease. higher total <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s are seen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> chronic inflammation or infection, HIV, hepatitis B or C, multiple myeloma and in Waldenstrom's disease. Please discuss this with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
The blood test came back with no problems, but the Creatinine levels and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the urine where too <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span>. The GP told me that my kidneys are under stress, is this correct? My GP advised me to have a second 24 hour urine and blood test done in 5 months. Do you think that is to long to wait for a second test is quite worried? Which levels of Creatinine and protein in the urine is too high?
I wouldn't worry about this lab value too much, especially with a normal platelet count. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s can be normal and nothing to worry about. Seeing an elevated protein alone doesn't bother me, as a physician. What I look at is the difference between the protein and the albumin level. If the difference is greater than 4, then there are extra proteins floating around from somewhere.
So my midwife seemed a bit worried, my blood pressure was higher than normal and i had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> on my pee stick thing, she took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> ryte then n there to check my uric <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s etc why?and wants to come visit me in two days to check my blood pressure, she also booked me in for a scan to check, why would she be checking my uric levels for? Im 39+2.
I got my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s, my calcium was 11 and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span>) was 8.7...........is this bad? Or are these just slightly high? All i keep seeing on the internet is stuff about cancer and HIV....could I just have high calcium and protein levels? Im under tons of stress, have had 10 kidney stones about 2 1/2 months ago, but never passed them, so idk if i even passed them.
1) What can cause your protien to be extremely <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> draws. 2) What can cause your cholesterol level to be very very low? Just a little history of me. I am 29yrs old and will be 30 on Sept 23,2010 and for the last year in September I went to the doctor with severe pain just under my breast of my left side. They have ran many test and still cant really find a source to my pain. During this time with blood work they found that I was diabetic and my cholesterol is very low.
I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my urine my entire pregnancy. Im 34weeks now. I had preeclampsia with my first pregnancy but so far my bp is fine with this pregnancy. Not sure why i have protein in my urine either.
I am a healthy 31 year old male and after getting a couple of blood/ urine tests, they have determined my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> level <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> urine is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the 24 hr urine collection, I had 864 mg of urine and it should be < 150mg. I don't have high blood pressure or diabetes symptoms. My only issue now is headaches I get every day which goes away when I take ibuprofen.
Sometimes, when your body is under some type of stress, they can malfunction and let things like protein and glucose sneak through (which they should not). <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the urine is something they monitor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> pregnancy esp if there is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> pressure because it can indicate pre-eclampsia (along with high BP) or some type of stress on the body.
Both times I have had abnormal increased <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>level</span>s of an IGG Kappa <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span>. Now they want a bone density test and want to sent me to a hematologist. My Neuro said prob nothing but could be MGUS a pre-cancerous condition that may or may not lead to Leukemia, Lynphona, or Bone Cancer. I am just wondeing could something else cause this protein to be high in my blood? Any input would be GREAT!!!!!!!
