    Hello,

    I understand being afraid when you hear things like kidney failure. But you only have a very small increase in your urinary protein level, which by some standards is normal. And assuming all other parameters are normal, I would estimate your risk of serious kidney issues, now or in the future, to be very low indeed. I really would put this out of your mind.

    This is a very minimal amount of proteinuria where is 65 or 145 mg. In fact, many labs will allow up to 200 mg of total protein in a 24 hour collection before flagging it as abnormal. Your particular lab used 140 mg which you just barely... This is a very minimal amount of proteinuria where is 65 or 145 mg. In fact, many labs will allow up to 200 mg of total protein in a 24 hour collection before flagging it as abnormal. Your particular lab used 140 mg which you just barely exceeded. So given the other parameters you have indicated above, if you do have kidney disease, on the basis of your protein levels alone, it would seem quite mild.

    Hello,

    This test indicates that you have a small elevation in the protein content of your urine. This could be due to a large number of conditions but statistically, in our society, the most likely contributors would be hypertension, diabetes or genetic kidney disease. In order to work in these conditions up further and establish a likely cause, you would need to follow-up with your healthcare provider.

  • I agree completely. It will be very interesting to see the results of the clinical trial with finerenone added to ACEi or ARB, seen here:
