Protein in urine.

Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Bubbles when peeing indicates that there is a protein in the urine. Please visit your doctor and have urine analysis done. In case of protein confirmation, you should consult nefrologist to rule out kidneys inflammation.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

Detailed Answer:
Dipstick is really not a good test. Moreover protein in the urine does not have to be in every sample.
Please have urine analysis in laboratory first. Sometimes it is necessary to collect the urine for 24 hours and than check protein level in such sample.

Hope this will help.
Regards.

I recently had labs done with a creatinine of.98 and a gfr> 95. I am worried about the possibility that I have nephrotic syndrome. Does that seem likely?

Detailed Answer:
Yes, this can be nephrotic syndrome indeed. Generally there is plenty of nephrotic syndrome reasons, however most common are glomerulonephritis.
That is why I`m asking you to have urine analysis and consult nephrologist.
