Brief Answer: protein deposits Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX It could be protein deposits in the urine. It would be ideal to get a urine routine and microscopy test done to come to know specifically about what this is. In my view it is mostly protein or albumin deposits. It can be fat globules as well. Please get the test done. Regards,
