I am usually on the Gerd forum but came here to ask a question regarding Protein in the urine.
My recent lab work indicated some protein, I am not sure of the number yet.  I talked with my doctor and he wants me to have the AC1 test.   (should have had that in the first place).
Does protein in the urine ALWAYS mean kidney disorder?????  I even read on the net that protein can be caused by dehydration also.   
My blood work indicated that kidney function was normal.   Can you guys enlighten me on this?
I am scared now.    thanks.

This does't mean you have kidney problems it can mean a lot of thing small things like dehydration to pregnancy to kidney problems. Don't get all worked up most of the time you have protein in your urine it is something simple.

Thank you for the reply.  All of this has been a little much.  First the Gastritis, then all these other problems.
I had a A1C test this am, so we will see.
Thank you again ;)

Looks like you have your share of problems?
I also have had anxiety over the years.  It has been pretty good until all of this started, did not do well after the lab today, got all shaky and weird feeling.
It could have been anxiety or hypoglycemia, since I was totally empty?
 
I lost my husband to diabetes, so guess I may be paranoid about getting it.
I know if I have it, I can control it, but the first thing I thought of with the elevated protein was my kidneys, scared the hell out of me. ;(
 
I have also lost weight, so have been worried about that. 
 
Thanks again ;)

Yes I do have my fair share of problem. I am only 33 so it can really take a toll on me. I started having majority of my problems around the age of 23-24. I try to stay positive but sometimes it can get the best of me.
I am so sorry to hear about your husband. Sorry you had a tough time with your labs getting done.
How did all your labs turn out? I hope you are feeling better now.

No Problem...Its what we are here for.
