Trace protein in the urine : Is that a concern?

Patient: My doctor tells me there is a trace of protien in my urine. How does this come about?

 

 

Doctor: Sometimes a trace of protein in the urine is an incidental finding. However higher levels of protein may indicate an inf ection or a kidney problem or even another systemic illness like diabetes etc. However a trace level of protein is not concerning. you may wish to get the urine checked at regular intervals to keep a look at the protein levels. All the best.
