Hi everyone,

Had a bunch of lab work with my new rheumatologist. Everything was ok except my albumin. It was extremely low. So low that my doctor doesn't believe it's from lack of protein but rather it's spilling somewhere in my body. I had no protein in my urine, so it looks like my kidneys are ok. Wondering now if it's leaking from my stomach. I see a urologist this month then a follow up with the GI doctor.

Anyone else had any problems with this?

Hi, I have not heard of a problem like this so I can't really help you out. Hopefully someone will come along with more knowledge than I have. Did you see your urologist yet?
