The high protein in blood needs to be specified and other test results are also needed for a correct interpretation.
please upload the reports as such in the follow up.
It is advisable the you get full work up for kidneys that is Complete blood counts, renal function test, urine routine and culture test and an ultrasound of kidneys ureter and bladder region.
