Proteinuria false positive

Common Questions and Answers about Proteinuria false positive

protein

I know the protein can be an indication of something serious with the kidneys, however, with lack of other symptoms, could it be a transient proteinuria caused by the dehydration and stress of the day or a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>false</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> due to the high PH? Appreciate your help. Thank you!
I have requested that your questions be shifted to the gynecology forum. Your last question regarding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>uria secondary to a urinary tract infection is a "yes." The true amount of protein in your urine can be best figured out by doing a 24 hour urine collection and your kidney function can also be calculated on that specimen. There are many causes for protein in urine and many false readings.
i am hep C <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span>, and would appreciate any feedback on your experiences and symptoms. MD diagnosed me eith autoimmune disorder unspecified. I have a mock vasculitis and my feet ache, It is so very difficult to walk. I also have extreme hypersensitivity of my skin, with itch, acne which I have never had. the dont want to treat the hep C as I have an associated liver disease. I have been on prednisone in varios doses abd neurontin and chlorquine, vit D, many other meds for liver.
Some drugs (such as rifampin) will color urine (rifampin orange, for example), and abnormally colored urine will give <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>false</span> readings on the dipstick labs, which rely on color for their interpretation. Transparency: Turbid urine transparency (turbidity). urine normally is clear. Semen, mucus, and lipid may cause turbidity in normal urine. increased numbers of cells, crystals, casts, or organisms can increase the turbidity of urine in disease conditions.
When using a dipstick there are incidences of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>false</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> readings (i.e., when the dipstick shows protein being present while there is no protein). This could happen when a urine sample tested is too dilute (specific gravity is less than 1.018), or if the urine is too alkaline (as opposed to be acidic). proteinuria may be transient, intermittent, or persistent.
Presence of antibody to Sm nuclear antigen or (C) positive finding of antiphospholipid antibodies based on (1) an abnormal serum level of IgG or IgM anticardiolipin antibodies, (2) a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> test result for lupus anticoagulant using a standard method, or (3) a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>false</span>-positive serologic test for syphilis known to be positive for at least 6 months and confirmed by Treponema pallidum immobilization or fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption tests 11.
A positive result to a syphilis test does not mean that you have or ever had syphilis. Approximately 20 percent of those with lupus will have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>false</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> syphilis test result. Antibodies to Ro/SS-A and La/SS-B (Ro and La are the names of proteins in the cell nucleus) are often found in people with Sjögren’s syndrome. Anti-Ro antibodies in particular will be found in people with a form of cutaneous (skin) lupus which causes a rash that is very sun-sensitive.
A dipstick for protein can often be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>false</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span>. A 24 hour urine for protein is the best indicator for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prote<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>uria but is impractical for an eleven month old. It is doubtful your child has significant proteinuria if she has not pyelonephritis ( infection of the kidneys) and or demonstrable renal scarring on nuclear renal scan. Reflux of infected urine, in the older child, is less likely to cause renal scarring.
Please give me your comments, I also had a lumber puncture which was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> for ms, and it also gave other diseases such as neuro aids and other neuro things, please give me your views on this thank you angela
I have been reading today about people who get diagnosed with seronegative Lupus. It made me wonder as I had the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> ANA, my dad had lupus, and i have symptoms, including the fever....etc.
Presence of antibody to Sm nuclear antigen or (C) positive finding of antiphospholipid antibodies based on (1) an abnormal serum level of IgG or IgM anticardiolipin antibodies, (2) a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> test result for lupus anticoagulant using a standard method, or (3) a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>false</span>-positive serologic test for syphilis known to be positive for at least 6 months and confirmed by Treponema pallidum immobilization or fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption tests 11.
He dictated his summary to the MS Specialist in front of me stating that he is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> that the T2 hyperintense lesions are ischemic in nature and not a demyelinating disease. Good news huh? I wonder how the MS Specialist will respond to that. Will he too dismiss my symptoms since 2006 with worsening of neurological sensory and motor deficits in 2010 to 2011? Let me know what you think.
Leukocytes (only interesting for dogs)*********** <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>false</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> test results often occur in cats, and this test is clinically unreliable. So only measuring PH, Blood and perhaps Nitrites and protein in urine are interesting. Above, more quotes: Summary of Dipstick Analysis pH - Expected Results (cats or dogs they don't tell, but check another website for more exactitude): 5.0 to 6.
