    I'm sorry but these numbers don't add up. I would need to see the original report. Otherwise, I strongly encourage you to discuss this with your physician.

    If this is 325 umol/L, this represents very low kidney function. Please attach your lab sheet to a reply after removing your identifying information in order to be sure we are on the same page with respect to these results.

  • You have a small amount of excess protein in the urine.

    Are you taking any medications including over the counter medications?
    Do you have any other health problems such as diabetes and hypertension?

    The amount of protein in the urine could be entirely consistent with the severe hypertension you experienced. In much the same way that the brain suffered an injury in the form of a lacunar stroke, so may the kidney have as well....
    Hello again,

    The amount of protein in the urine could be entirely consistent with the severe hypertension you experienced. In much the same way that the brain suffered an injury in the form of a lacunar stroke, so may the kidney have as well. If your blood pressure is well controlled and since you are now on an ACE inhibitor, you can help prevent the proteinuria from worsening and, most importantly, your kidney function from worsening further. The key will be to observe over time relative stability of both the GFR levels and protein levels in the urine (some fluctuation is expected).
