I use too have pretty seriouse kidney disease with my lupus when I was first sick about 6 years ago. But it soordof went into remission or disappeared. I think I may have signs of it again. I just cant remember if that is high for protien. I am going in to see my nephrologist.

Diagnosed SLE since 1995, Lupus anticoagulant, Class 4 Kidney disease, depression, seizures & a stroke.

What is a reading of 100? My last test said this? First said trace, then 70, then 100....

I don't have one. I just have a PCP and a Rheumy who sends his findings to him and gives me plaquenil and pain killers.

I plan to see my PCP in a week I guess I need to ask him about the increase.
