Nephrologist 's  Response
Thanks for the query.
You have not mentioned your age or sex.
Protein leak is a sign of early kidney damage. However it does not mean that your kidneys are failing; in fact your serum creatinine is normal.
I would however advice you to obtain urine microscopy and ultrasound of the kidneys.
Also the test to detect protein leak needs to be repeated periodically and if protein leaks increases further investigations may be needed.
Meanwhile there are a few medications to reduce protein leak which should be taken under the supervision of a nephrologist.
Hope this helps.
Good luck
