Hi, the dipstick test for protein provides a crude semiquantitative estimation of protein concentration, with results as follows:
• Trace = 5-20 mg/dL
• 1+ = 30 mg/dL
• 2+ = 100 mg/dL
• 3+ = 300 mg/dL
• 4+ = Greater than 2000 mg/dL

Drugs like ACE inhibitors and angiotensin-receptor blockers have an established antiproteinuric effect.
