I m 19 years old male (medical student) I have proteinuria but with normal of all investigation of kidney clearance so by doing 24 hr urine collection I gained normal GFR & protein conc 32 mg/dl my doctor said I must drink lots of water & then repeated analysis (he suspect of allergy )??!! other wise I m not well I have stress for 5 years & begin not eat from year ago so my weight is loss severely ( i have loss of appetite & abdominal pain after eat any small thing with cough after eat too I don t feel well .... so is my proteinuria is due to my malnutrition & emotional stress or as my doctor say??
first known causes of protein loss is to be ruled out.check urine routine for rbc and pus cells,urine for AFB morning sample daily for three days,24 hr urine protein.as u are having abdominal symptoms abdominal Tuberculosis is to be ruled out
