Common Questions and Answers about Protein in urine diabetes

protein

I have diabetes type 2.
Hi, When was the first time that you were diagnosed with diabetes? Are you taking any medications for the diabetes? Proteinuria may need further assessment. Were casts present in the urine? Are there RBC's in the urine significant enough for a hematuria ( >5 /hpf)? You may need blood tests to determine serum creatinine and BUN levels. Your glomerular filtration rate has to be ascertained. Discuss this with your physician and keep us posted regarding his advice.
i seen that too omega 3 and fish will bring down creatine..
Hello, Urine protein 2 plus represents significant proteinuria.Excreting proteins in urine usually indicate a problem in the urinary tract.

I am a healthy 31 year old male and after getting a couple of blood/ urine tests, they have determined my protein level in urine is high. In 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.
Protein in urine discovered on a microalbumin test may often be the earliest sign of diabetic kidney damage. Have you seen a Nephralogist to rule kidney issues or renal pathway infection? Try posting on the Kidney Disease & Disorders & Nutrition forums. Not much more I can help you with since your concern doesn't appear to be about diabetes. Good luck.
Protein in the urine could also be from a bladder infection, so can blood in the urine. If you are working out at 8 hrs per week, you should not be breaking down muscle to cause proteinuria. Get checked for diabetes and high blood pressure. If these are negative, then have your physician do a 24 hour urine protein collection to see how much protein you are losing. If this is in the normal range, you are probably OK.
Our 13 year old son ha a very high amount of protein (6.7) in his urine. They did a 24 hour test and that is what it amounted to. We are wondering what could be causing this or what it could be. The urologist stated that his kidneys were not filtering properly. What does all of that mean?
Usually (in the absence of any underlying conditions) if the amount of protein in urine is low, then 2-3 repeat urine examinations should be done during the next month; if the protein in urine is high, then a comprehensive examination including a 24 hour assessment should be done. You should consult your doctor/nephrologist for management of this. Take care and do write in if you need more information.
So I went to the hospital the other night and they told me there was 30 mg of protein in my urine. Is that a lot?? I had to do the 24 hour pee test and they are checking me for pre eclampsia.
Hello, Protein in urine is due to diabetic nephropathy (damage to the kidneys because of diabetes) or due to a compromised kidney function. Firstly, the cause of the proteinuria has to be found out. The treatment will depend on the same. For that a battery of tests are required like 24 hrs urinary excretion, all the kidney function tests. Mild proteinuria can occur due to a number of conditions and can go away on its own. Please do consult a nephrologist for examination.

Hi, Firstly, what caused this protein loss in your urine? How was this measured? Was a 24 hour urine sample done to quantify urine protein level? Was a urinalysis done and were other elements present like red blood cells and crystals? Was there any underlying infection? The cause of the protein loss has to be ascertained first and management shall start from there. Nephrotic syndrome, nephropathies caused by hypertension and uncontrolled diabetes may present with protein loss.
Tired, sleepnig, no energy is a sign his BG is too high. It can also be a sign of many other problems. Diabetes is a disease of un-controled blood sugar (BG) BG changes, eating carbohydrates will raise BG. Exercise, drugs lower BG. the ONLY way to find out what works and what doesn't is to test his BG. There are other forums that can help, google "diabetes forums" or "diabetes newsgroups" BG over 140 in the USA (7.8 in the rest of the world) is causing damage.
Hello, Ammonia smell in urine could be due to bacterial infection in the urinary tract without regular symptoms of UTI, dehydration, consumption of red meat or high protein foods. I think you should consult your doctor and get the urine examined for infection, ketones etc. You may also need to get a urine culture done. Frequent urination can also be due to urine infection or kindey conditions and diabetes. Your blood sugar levels also need to be checked. Hope this helps.

A couple of weeks ago, I had lab work done which included a urine sample, which showed there was a trace of blood and 30 mg/dl of protein in my urine. Should I be concerned? Thanks in advance for any insight!
I have protein and blood in my urine. Just wondering what casues this and what tests will the doctor do after urinalysis?
Just today I visited an urgent care clinic and a new doctor said I was also clean, but there was ketones and protein in my urine. He asked if I had eaten recently, and I agree I didn't eat much today, but he was surprisingly quiet. I don't think he was even sure. He referred me to a urologist, and as I sit here my back is aching on my sides and up my spine. I am worried, quite honestly. I always have tried to eat healthy since I had a bit of an excess of weight on me when I was younger.
Large amounts of protein in the urine may indicate a kidney problem, and diabetes. The presence of blood and protein in urine can occur separately, but since they both present in urine, it requires urgent medical attention. You should consult a doctor for a complete urine analysis and kidney function tests like serum creatinine and creatinine clearance.
So my husband got on the phone to the mother and asked what was going on, she told him that he's being complaining for the past four days, he asked her so had taking him in to the Doctors and she told him that she hasn't had the time. He then told her that he was on his way to take him there. To make the long story short, he was very constipated for those four days, and that they found that he was burning fat in his urine.
