Avatar n tn I went to the OB/GYN this week and they told me that I had a high level protein in my urine. I was told to do another test, which resulted in the same thing.

Avatar f tn I had some blood work done and the only thing that was abnormal was that my protein level was high. I don't remember how high, 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.

Avatar f tn The higher-protein group showed better health across the board. People in that group had greater decreases in blood pressure, LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. What’s more, their estimated 10-year risk of heart disease decreased compared to those on the lower protein track. Had these subjects been allowed to lose weight, the results may have been even more dramatic. About 30 percent of your calories should come from protein.

Avatar f tn There are very many causes for high protein levels in a dog's urine, the most common being diet - though other causes can be more serious.

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.
Avatar m tn Hi. Are the elevated blood and protein levels in 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.
Avatar n tn The blood test came back with no problems, but the Creatinine levels and Protein levels in the urine where too high. The GP told me that my kidneys are under stress, is this correct?

Avatar n tn 3 is higher than the range, this small hike is clinically acceptable and usually does not indicate a disease. Higher total protein levels are seen in 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.
Avatar m tn I wouldn't worry about this lab value too much, especially with a normal platelet count. High protein levels 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.
