Urine analysis for albumin, sugar and Renal function tests ( blood to be tested for urea and creatinine) should be done to start with.
If there is anything of concern, next step is to do scan of the kidneys and the urinary tracts.
Based on these, further special tests need to be done.
If the initial tests are normal, there is nothing to worry.
Hope this helps, kindly get back for doubts if any.
