Hi everyone- i'm on the lyme forum here on healingwell, but recently i did some tests to check my liver function and kidneys- well my blood test for my kidneys came back fine but my urine specimen showed a high amount of protein in my urine- like 500s. Has anyone else had this and what does it usually mean??  If it is cancer would something else abnormal show up? They are sending me to a nephrologist tomarrow.

Hey finding! I am not familular with Kidney problems and Lyme Disease so I can't give much advice on that but I do know most of the time Protein in urine can be controlled by a Ace Inhibitor called Lisinopril. When I first started having Kidney problems (due to lupus) they put me on Lisinopril and it controlled the protein leakage. Do you have any blood in your urine? Do you know what your Creatinine, Bun, and GFR are? Are you having to get up a lot at night to use the restroom? Fluid retention in legs/ankles?

Let us know how your apt goes tomorrow with your nephrologist! Hopefully he/she will be able to answer most of your questions for you :)!

He doesn't seem highly concerned b/c the blood test is normal- he took another specimen and said i can do an ultrasound if i want- wants the urine to be checked every 6mths- i'll probably go back sooner than that though- my lyme could be triggering it but he didn't say much about that- most regular docs don't. Doing a urine anyalsis to check for infection too... the number or level in my urine isn't high enough to him to be concerned- he said if it's in the 1000s he would be concerned. He did notice when he did my blood pressure that when i go from sitting to standing it drops- just told me to drink more water... thanks so much for responding to me here- i'm going to a cardio doc thursday to finish ruling out any heart issues- going to do a stress test- my ekg was normal.

Amy you are so right Lisenpril will help control it. I've been on it for three years now. My sister has a high protein in her urine she controls it with Lisenpril and decreases her protien intake. Basic diet changes can do wonders.

Hi im having similar issues, i went to my doctors as i had symptoms of a uti, (lower back paind & some stomach cramps) it felt as if someone was pushing on my bladder, they took a urine test which came back no uti but i had protein in my urine, i went back 2 times and still had protein, they done blood tests & swabs and all came back clear, shes call me in for another appointment but im not sure what's going on, i am currently trying for a baby but my tests never come up positive until im atleast 8 weeks, i could only be a maximum of 4 weeks now if i was, im thinking of asking for a scan to check if i am as im not allowed to take any antibiotics for my back pain until i k ow for certain. Any advice would be great im so confused but worried at the same time.

If you have protein in your urine that means you have some kind of kidney disease or problem, it may not be noticeable to you yet but it's very common with kidney disease to have protein and microscopic blood in your urine. I now have end stage kidney failure but before when i was at a early stage I had protein and micro blood in my urine for years before I went to stage 2. The protein will always be there if you have any kind of renal disease. It won't go away but there are some ways to manage it early on. See a renal doctor (Nephrologist) to check out you kidney function. I have no idea if pregnancy is causing any of it but you need to find out. I would look up signs of kidney failure and see if any of it describes you.

Do not go for diaysis easily, try 水龟草 for sometimes then go for blood test and compare the results.
These are patients who take 水龟草 daily and avoid dialysis as the kidney function is back to normal.
