Four grams of protein is very elevated and must be evaluated further. Do you have any medical problems like diabetes or hypertension?

I do not they just picked up on it and they are gonna do further testing. I’m 9 weeks pregnant would that have anything to do with it?

While the proteinuria itself might not have anything to do with being pregnant, it is extremely relevant to the pregnancy moving forward and has very important implications for the health of the baby and yourself. I strongly recommend this is urgently evaluated by a kidney specialist and a high-risk pregnancy specialist.
