Common Questions and Answers about Low protein in blood high protein in urine

blood

I suffer from high "protein in urine" or high creatinine levels, now it's 2.4, but it was higher. I reccommend you read Dr. Walser's book on a low-protein, low-phoshorus diet to avoid dialysis. Your kidney doctor will probably tell you to go on a low-protein diet, but won't give you specifics. Dr. Walser's book explains the diet. It's rather hard diet to stick with, but beats the alternative.
Chronic kidney failure, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, Hodgkin's lymphoma, kidney disease, leukemia, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and sickle cell anemia are a few of the many conditions that can cause protein in urine, according to the Mayo Clinic. Also keep in mind that certain medications and dehydration can also cause the problem.
I have protein in my urine.
You may also need 24 hours urine test, random protein to creatinine ratio to check the kidney status and a serum and urine protein electrophoresis test to determine which proteins are being excreted and in what quantities. Sometimes, some proteins will appear in the urine if the levels of protein in blood become high, even when the kidney is functioning properly. I suggest you to discuss these investigations with your urologist and get them done. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
My son has been thru blood tests also has had high eosinophils( very high) his White bl count has been low for 9 mos. he now has protein in urine and now going to see the kidney doc. so I will watch your posts and hope you get some answers.
However, when I'm convinced something is wrong with me I don't like to hear that I'm ok so I had her redo the test because everything I have ever read indicated that foamy urine is usually protien. It can back in the low ranges of normal for even a healthy person once again. All was good and fine thereafter until I noticed that my new pack of ketoacidosis strips that I always get but never use had a proteinuria check on them.
Papi, I had almost an identical situation as your son. I was on a swim team throughout jr. high and high school, and very good at it. I was in the pool for 2.5 hrs in the morning and another hour in the afternoon for several years. My mom and I heard about whey protein (powder) and I started drinking a glass before workouts and before races. I developed Rheumatoid arthritis when I was 15 yrs. It started as "water on the knee" and spread from there.
Brucergoldberg, I apologize for my delayed response. I think that you are referring to a study called protein electropheresis? It is a blood (or urine) test that is often used to analyze proteins. Specifically, we use this test to look for abnormal proteins that may be present in your blood or urine. This test helps to characterize the type of abnormal protein that is present and further studies may be necessary to determine the amount of abnormal protein that is present.
I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and at about 20 weeks my ob found high levels of protein in my urine. They thought it was the early stages of preeclampsia and sent me to a high risk ob. I have no other symptoms of preeclampsia and have the general doctor community stumped. At my last ultra sound, the high risk ob had them do an ultra sound of my kidneys and found out that my left kidney is extremely enlarged. They now think that it is NOT preeclampsia but MSK.
When we arrived home they called and said that he was +3 of 4 on the protein in the urine. He has an appt to see a Kidney doc. next week. He is also doing a 24 hr urine collect today. My question is ...he ate hunny bun, milk, mt.dew and pepsi some hours before the doc visit. Could this be why the high protein???? We did not know he would take that test or we would have been more careful of what he ate. He is 18 yrs old.
if your test were negitive for std then you have nothing to worry about and can continue with your regular partner. WBC can be high if you have too much protein in your urine it doesn't mean you have an STD you need to do as vance recommended and follow up with your doctor. You can't get chlamydia from oral and your testing for gono was negitive.
doc said he'll not worry about it unless i spill protein again next time. But having protein in urine can mean preeclampsia/toxemia or that something is up with my kidneys. i never thought i would have this much trouble with my 1st pregnancy! im young and relatively haelthy!
Blood in urine or hematuria with burning pain while urinating, is usually a sign of infection. Infection can be in the kidney, bladder, ureters and urethra. Presence of blood and high protein in urine is an indication of renal impairment. I would suggest that you get a serum creatinine level and a check of 24 hour urine protein level to determine the exact level of protein and there by the level of damage to the kidney due to recurrent infections.
and you would have albumin or protein in the urine. Low albumin/ low protein may also be caused by protein malnutrition. Since you have diabetes, be aware that starchy foods promote water absorption. When you absorb glucose, you also absorb sodium.....and that can cause the leg swelling. And you're taking Alinia....I don't know whether it could be causing protein to be lost from the intestines. So for you, diet and keeping your blood sugar under control is going to be very important.
When I went to the first rheumatoid dr he did more blood work and a urinalysis which showed protein and blood in my urine. He also said my blood work showed positive for vasculitis and he referred me to a nephrologist to have a kidney biopsy. The kidney dr said a biopsy wasn't warranted at the time because although the dip stick showed blood under the microscope he didn't see any. I then found a rheumatologist (2nd opinion for the vasculitis) in New Orleans and did the entire workup again.
Is it possible to have CKD or kidney failure without protein in urine? Last week my masseuse found a knot in my back that she suspects could be inflammation in my kidney. I've had some weird symptoms popping up over the last month like foot/ankle swelling, profound fatigue, leg cramps and blurry vision.
dear sir,my wife is 29+week pregnant now and has 3+ protein in urine,and she is suffering from pre eclampsia, B.P is fluctuating in a day as low as 120/90 and as high as 160/120,LDH,Uric acid,Platelets in serum are in normal range. using Methyl dopa 500mg Nifedipine Retard 20mg thrice a day and labetalol 100mg twice a day.but blood presuure is getting controlled,one day cardiologist suggested a diuretic 20 mg as a stat dose,immediately then b.
during one of my regular doctor visits they said there was no trace of red blood cells in my urine. But a later urine test...maybe 3 months in between was there again. Thanks for listening.
) please let me know what you find out.
Albium is a type of protein in your urine. Both high blood pressure and protein in your urine can be connected or a occassional side effect of MSK. As far as the pain, PLEASE read through the many posts here and healthpages listed at the top right article. After doing so feel free to contact m withany questions.
I have tested positive for some immune complexes in my blood and low platelets but that's it. My doctor is acting like she believes it is psychosomatic, but then ordered a bunch of blood tests,which they haven't called me back about yet. My allergy/immunology doc has referred me back to my general doc. I can't get enough protein without this big inflammatory response. My ears are ringing, my hair is falling out, and my vision gets worse by the day.
My IgG is raised, albumin is real high and my index is high. I know they said it was a little high in 99, now it is real high. For twenty years I have been hearing about bad Neurologists and how many have fired theirs 4 or 5 times forums due to the stupid things they say to them that hurt and made them mad. " Who hasn't heard "Have you seen a Pyschiatrist? A Pyschiatrist would be best after a diagnosis.
Hi, In sexually transmitted diseases, those that cause significant kidney disease are of viral origin. The primary causes are HIV-1, HBV, and HCV. You can read about this study through this link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15844383 Take care and do update us with your results.
That means negative results doesnt rule out protein in urine completely. The 24 hour urine collection is far more reliable. talk to your doctor.
