High proteinuria and high comsumption of dietary Supps
about 3 weeks ago i was on a very high protein and creatine diet ( im a bodybuilder ) my proteinuria came up to be .71 gr/24 hour, im wondering if there is a relationship between the protein/creatine supps and high levels of proteinuria?
also, how high are the results, should i be concern?
first of all ..heavy exercise can cause muscle breakdown which releases myoglobin which is very toxic for your nephrons.and with exercise induced hypertension albumin eflux from your body is ten times more then normal circumstances.Thats called functional proteinuria.thats normal.you have nothing to worry about.there is one more thing u can do..ask the pathologist or your doctor to check for RBC in urine the structure of RBC under microscope will tell them the source of the RBC.generally in exe induced hypertension RBC is seldomly seen..but if there is some rbc pathologist can tell you exactly what you have.
