Re: what does it mean when you have protien in your urin

it is usually(in most cases,but not always) one of the very first indicators of a possible underlying kidney disease. what did your doc tell you about this? did he do your kidney labs whe they did the urine testing that found that protien? Marcia

Re: what does it mean when you have protien in your urin

hi If i were you i would go back asp and ask your doctor a few questions ie the test results as to the reading also to explain the readings thoroughly to you and if it is not to bad which i am sure it cant be as he would have done something about it such as a diet and or medication.I have had a kidney transplant so i know one of the blood readings they look at is the protien level but please dont worry yourself as like i said before he would have done something about it but there is no harm in checking out take care

Re: what does it mean when you have protien in your urin

Protein in the urine, as mentioned, can be the first sign of kidney disease. However, everyone spills a small amount of protein in the urine (usually about 150mg). If you have diabetes, however, it is even stricter - even 30mg/day can be an issue. What you need to have is a special urine test called the protein:creatinine ratio- this will tell you how much you're spilling. Do you have diabetes? How did they find that you have protein in the urine?
