|Kidney Disorders Protein in Urine
I recently had a 24 hour that showed I had an unbalance of creatine
and protein in my urine. My doc said that it was not to be too worried
about right now. I suffer from anxiety /panic attacks and my blood
pressure can fly in an instant. Does anyone know the long term effects
of protein in the urine or what it means? Should I get a second opinion
from a Urologist (sp?).
How high is the Creatinine and protein?
someone with a kidney disorder and/or HBPress. should stop smoking, stop all alcohol and get on a STRICT weight controlling diet that is not very high protein. A dietician familiar with renal disorders is almost a necessity
Hey everyone! How are you doing? You find that in a nephrology
rotation, proteinuria is something that is VERY common with renal
disease. There are a number of different conditions that can cause
protein in the urine. The first step is to also find out if there is
blood in the urine, and exactly how much urine there is.
a urine tests doesn't test the actual function of your kidney (as in it will not tell you your creatnine level which is the true test of kidney function and is determined through a blood test) but it tells you how well your kidney is filtering your urine.
|are you passing urine still and is it painful? Have you
noticed any blood in your urine? Is there any history of renal disease
in your family? Normally renal problems would present with lethargy,
loin pain rather than back pain, feeling sick.
has your doc done test for renal function such as Creatinnine, Urea,
Potassium and such like? Have you had a 24 hour urine collection done?
If not, perhaps you should ask about this to eliminate any kidney
- Sarah - I used to live and work as a renal RN in London before relocating to Boston.
PS - do more blood tests that are renal specific for
Creatinnine, Urea, Potassium, Sodium, Calcium and all the electrolytes.
A biochemistry profile should sort this. You need to tell him about
these pains, as inflammation can affect the workings of the kidneys as
inflammation can affect the renal arteries and veins.
|Rocco Go to a kidney specialist (Nephrologist) and get a
blood test for kidney function

OK, but maybe you could 'informally' ask that of those who are in your group,
The best information on what this chemical does is
And since it targets the liver and kidney and since there are so many people in our nation affected
This is 'generically' what it does
the nephrologists have been seening these so harmed for many years. It will become pandemic
I believe the military today, are as much at risk for 'gulf war syndrome' & ultimate kidney problems, too,
as those of 1990-1991 www.valdezlink.com/can_you_help.htm
Many scientific studies are 'skewed' because they are dealing with secondary symptoms of this chemicals harm and 'chalking' up the tally on the secondary symptoms
So, if you know a doctor or legislator interested in this, could you forward this query to them? Thank you so very much
