Thread: Protein (Albumin) in Urine

    Protein (Albumin) in Urine

    I usually take a full urine test with other tests about every six months. Most of the time in the urine report it says that there's protein (albumin). This time it says +30 the highest so far. This has been happening on an off since 1998. The pus cells are also high but the doctor said it was normal as I use an intermittent catheter. I visit a kindney specialist once a year and even though I show the report he doesn't show any concern and tells me not to worry. He takes a scan, checks the blood urea and all these are OK. SCI nurse is it OK to have albumin in the urine if all the other test reports are OK.

    I would share your concern with your doctor. He may not understand that it is bothering you. One test out of all of them does not make for concern- however, there needs to be an answer as to why you are spilling albumin into your urine. Are you losing weight? Muscle mass?

    Thanks SCI Nurse. And no I'm not losing weight or muscle mass.
