    physical results

    Okay I did my yearly for my company and on the urine test it said that there was a trace amount of protien. I am sure this is from lots of meat and whey drinks. They didn't ask any questions about it just mentioned it. What would they have said if it was a higher amount of protien?

    They would have told you to go see a urologist for your kidneys. And yes, if you are chugging the protien drinks that will up your protein amount; however, consider dropping the drinks down a notch if you are doing a lot of it.

    i don't think protein presence in urine is due to high protein intake, it may show in the blood test but not in urine. if it shows in your urine it means your kidneys are not functioning properly. my creatinine was high when i did blood test but in urine test showed nothing, and the urologist told me he's not concerned with the blood test results but more concerned what the urine test shows. yes go see a urologist.

    bass could be correct on this. Hit google and do some research. Definately do the doc thing on this one.

    thats salsdorks for you! please let us know what your doc says. when my blood test showed high creatinine and low GFR i was so worried, because based on the kidney disease charts i was in third stage kidney disease, there are 5 stages and at 5 you need a kidney transplant! i thought hell i am half way there which i assumed it was 50% gone! but when i saw the specialist he told me not to worry, your kidneys are 80% functional and been 80% for few years so there is no progress of any disease! the sooner you catch it the the more likely you can treat it. i wish you the best!

    Okay went to dr today and she kind of laughed at first and said I bet you were just dehydrated. Well she did another urine analysis and it had no protien in it. Now that I think about it I did cardio earlier in the day and another thing that will cause a false protien reading on a urine analysis is strenuous exercise. Oh well better to be safe than sorry. Thanks everyone for all of your help and advice as always I appreciate it. I wish I had read jpk's post before I went in since they had done kidney and liver function bloodwork about 1-2 months ago. Since I take meds on a regular basis they always check that on my yearly and 6 months later. She also said that looked great, I still wish I would have requested a copy. I have full blodwork on monday for next round of therapy so when those results come in I will post them here.
