Urine test results proteinuria

Common Questions and Answers about Urine test results proteinuria


Avatar m tn Recently I went to the doctor for a urinalysis because I read about the correlation between kidney disease and proteinuria. I'm unsure as to whether my bubbles are caused by protein. My test results indicated that no proteins were present in my urine specimen. My creatinine serum is 1.0. My GFR is 97.6 ml/min/1.73 msg. I'm wondering- will my GFR hold steady in the 90's? I'm 24 years old/ non-smoker/ no hypertension/ non diabetic/ no family history of kidney disease.
Avatar n tn The night before, I had a two hour drive, six hour flight and landed in 105 degrees AZ. Had little to drink and the day of the test I was very dehydrated and the urine was very concentrated. Dr. did not seem worried, but wanted a follow urinalysis in a few days. I have no symptoms for any of the diseases that cause Chronic Kidney Disease, except for this urinalysis finding. Does this sound like it could be serious?
Avatar n tn hi, i have foamy urine, and i have had a 24hr urine test done and my results came back as a 7, on a scale of 1-15, doctor said it was normal. my blood pressure is normal as well so i was just wondering what other things can cause foamy urine.
Avatar f tn Since I'm just 19 weeks they orders the test to get a baseline because I got a high BP reading. The results came in Friday morning and only the nurse was around, she said call us Monday. Preeclampsia cutoff is 300mg at 20 weeks but I was 286 at 19 and fairly hydrated. Tried to relax over the weekend but not going well. First pregnancy and partner isn't super understanding and we got into a huge fight.
Avatar n tn is, in my humble and non-medical opinion, not normal and should probably be brought to your doctors attention. A quick urine sample and test will give almost immediate results for any kind of infection. (Bladder, kidney) Maybe someone else here has had the same thing and will know what it is and I hope they see your post and respond.
Avatar m tn The first time I noticed I went to doc, did a urine sample test and found small traces of urine by nurse. So I was then sent off to have lots of kindey test: eGFR MICROALBUMIN/CREATININE MICROALBUMIN, UR, QN BUN BUN-to-creatinine ratio A1C Liver Panel Thyroid Panel ANA Panel CBC This was 3 years ago. And recently had the same test done besides ANA, and all were normal again, even dipstick was normal. He said dipsticks do show false positives.
Avatar m tn I told my doctor and he did blood work and took a urine sample to check for protein. Both test came back normal. What could be causing the foamy urine. Its not the toilet, its the same in everyone that I use. Any one have any ideas what could be causing this ?
Avatar m tn It might help to know the "test required" were called Urine M/C/S,; CHLAMYDIA PCR-NEISSERAE PCR
336365 tn?1213323198 I just received my results on a serum and urine test. I was wondering if there is anything to be concerned about or perhaps followed up on. Serum Total Protein: 6.4 Based off: g/dL Albumin: 4.1 Alpha 1: 0.2 Alpha 2: 0.8 Beta - 1: 0.5 Beta - 2: 0.2 Gamma: 0.6 Albumin 64.7 Alpha 1 2.
Avatar m tn Around two months ago I started seeing a nephrologist to see if the blood is coming from the kidneys, and around the same time my UA test started showing protein in my urine. Bellow are the results of my last UA and a 24hr urine protein. With this results, Is the protein in my urine secondary to the gross hematuria or am I having protein in my urine because some how my kidneys are not working right??? Any help will be really appreciated.
Avatar n tn What is a normal level for protein in the urine? what is considered to high? If it's too high what can I do to lower it.
Avatar n tn I had a urine test the other day. I did not drink any water or eat for 12 hrs before. I did however do a very strenuous cross country run1 hr before delivering the sample which was small and very concentrated. My Dr called yesterday and told me there was protein in my sample, not blood. Would this be from lack of fluid intake and strenuous exercise?
Avatar m tn the nephrologist agrees that only the First Morning Urine yields RBCs and WBCs, all other Urine samples taken in afternoons have none. he says its not UTI. my recent blood and morning urine test results (Jan 2011) are as follow: -----Blood test: [Creatinine] : 0.78 mg/dL [Albumin] : 5.
4503521 tn?1400862486   Pre-eclampsia can increase your blood pressure and affect how your well your kidneys filter your blood. Proteins that should stay in your blood leak into your urine, causing proteinuria.  If your urine sample contains high levels of protein, and your blood pressure is raised, your midwife may take a blood sample. This will check your blood count, clotting, kidney and liver function.
Avatar m tn after having urine test there was blood and protein present in my urine after ultra sound they found a shadow on my left kidney and i had a sistoscopy results were normal now i am going for a cat scan .i ca not see blood in my urine but tests show i have microscopic amount of blood in my urine and infection has been ruled out.what could be wrong with me.?
Avatar n tn the blood still didn't go away but the colour on the urine test stick was lighter, so he had a urine test done, he told me that the results showed no funny things in the urine but had a count of blood in andn that we should leave it till the next visit and he will check up on it. Saterday befor Chrismas ( about a month later) I took my son to my "back up doctor" he has German Measles, told he about the previous urine test so she did one to, results 1+ protein and 2+ blood.
Avatar f tn I just recently gotten the results back from a urine test, and it came back as +2, however I have done a urine test about 7 months ago, and they said said I was completely normal(NEG). The doctor said I should redo the test again, to make sure. However, I am now worried because of these results. I have noticed that when I urinate in the toilet I get very small bubbles, they sometimes clump together, but they dissipate after a while, and gravitate to the edge of the bowls.
Avatar n tn In my urine routine test i found Occessional RBCs and occult blood. I diid other tests like Himogram,Urine crtena,24 hr protein. All test found normal. Wahat could be the reson for these RBCS.How frequently i shold check my urine. Whan these rbcs will clear from my urine.I have cfrequent urine infection with itching and burning which normally go once i apply termeric powder.Is these Please advice what care i should take to avoid further problems.
Avatar n tn I saw the Nephrologist for the second time a couple of weeks ago and he said my tests are OK and to keep blood pressure and diabetes under control (which they are) and to see him again in a year. Today I picked up my test results and it's showing eGFR at 54. He said all my tests came back OK and they did except for the protein and the eGFR. I just want to make sure this is something that does not need to be followed more closely. Does waiting a year to be rechecked sound reasonable?
Avatar f tn So in that case, we need to do monitoring of urine at different times to see if the amount of proteinuria changes over time. 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.
1973666 tn?1325968288 Why not buy a pack of urine reagent test strips that you can use to test your urine for protein. A pack of 100 strips can be had for not too much money ($12.00 to around $50 depending on the brand). Find them through Google. Then if you see that you do have protein in your urine, you could use the strip as evidence to show your primary doctor that you need a referral to a nephrologist. I like the idea of using strips for testing at different times of day.
Avatar n tn Is it normal to have filaments in the urine? I only noticed these after I started getting a bloody discharge which after many consultations was determined to be coming from my kidneys. I also have had protein and hemosiderin in my urine. This all occurred after being treated for a nasty sinus infection that has cultured out many gram negative bacteria (Klebsiella 5X in the last year and one/half) and fungi (mainly Fusarium).
Avatar n tn Even a mild urine infection can cause traces of protein in the urine ie protein is found in blood and with a uti it is common to have a small amount of blood in the urine - hence trace of protein as well. have a urine test done to outrule infection and have your kidney function measured by a simple blood test ;) re the altter ie blood test, even one poor egfr can also be the result of a uti!!!!! you need to show a steady pattern of poor egfr to indicate ckd.
6850426 tn?1385502685 I am a little confused with regard to your blood in the urine. So has blood been detected in your urine when you had your last urine test? Or is it something that is detected from time to time? I am not a doctor and probably would not know what all your test results mean. I am aware of some urine problems like I mentioned in my early message due to my own experience and using a reagent test strip. A laboratory test on the urine is more accurate and gives actual levels. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn Urinary tract infections cause burning sensation while passing urine, back pain, urethral discharge, fever, chills and blood in the urine. Diagnosis can be made by getting an urine examination done along with a urethral swab examination. What is your age? Testing for sexually transmitted diseases also need to be done. Ultrasound will reveal if any abnormality present in the appearence of kidneys, urinary tract and also for the presence of stones in them. Consult your urologist immidiately.
Avatar n tn That means negative results doesnt rule out protein in urine completely. The 24 hour urine collection is far more reliable. talk to your doctor.
Avatar m tn I know my blood pressure has being good lately. My last urine test was done on 4-21 I had a creatine random urine and it was 146. On 5-9-08 my microalbumin random urine was 26.5 my microalbumin/creatine 182 which is showing up really high. As i told you before my c3 complements are 74 L my complement total Ch 50 were <10 L. I went to a Rheumatologist on 5-16-08 and she said I didn’t have SLE but she ran new test to figure out what it is. I got negative on Sjogren's Ab. HCV Ab is <0.1 .
Avatar m tn ( cant find any. My urine test was done at a labratory not in the doctors office.
Avatar m tn Hi, I understand your concern regarding your test results. Elevated urinary protein may suggest proteinuria which may be a sign of kidney disease. Confirmatory testing and additional diagnostic tests may need to be done. If you have co-morbid conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, or both, it is important that blood glucose and blood pressure are controlled. It is best that you discuss the results with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
