I would really appreciated if someone can help me.
I recently had my yearly physical and they found protein in my urine. the results are 2+. Is this considered and abnormally high result? when the doctor called me he told me that it was a trace and when i got my results in the mail it said 2+. Is 2+ consider abnormally high? I guess them want to do a micoalbumin test. I called back and talked to the nurse and she told me it was just a trace of protein but everything i read online says its high :(
can someone please explain my test results? should i be concerned? been to every pharmacy looking for protein test strips :( cant find any. My urine test was done at a labratory not in the doctors office. please help if you can
The analysis does show proteinuria. The common causes for protein in the urine are infections of the kidney/bladder, disorders of the kidney/bladder, certain disorders like diabetes, strenuous exercise and certain medications. Discuss these options with your consulting doctor. He may do tests like urine analysis for microalbinuria, blood tests, X rays, ultrasonography, CT scan and sometimes cystoscopy to detect the cause for proteinuria.
