Brief Answer: Unlikely to be the cause Detailed Answer: Hi there Thank you for sending in your query. If there is persistent protein loss of more than 150 mg in a 24 hour urine collection, it is thought to be significant. Proteinuria is usually a sign of kidney problem. The use of conjugated estrogen cream (i.e., premarin cream) has not been associated with the development of proteinuria or worsening of existing proteinuria. So what might be the cause of your problem? It is difficult for me to comment on that based on the information provided. However I could suggest a few tests which will give us some pointers into the severity of your problem as well as its cause. These include: 1) Urine R/M 2) Urine protein to creatinine ratio (UPCR) 3) Blood tests: Urea, creatinine and blood glucose 4) An ultrasound of the kidneys. I hope this was helpful. Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions. Regards Dr. Bhabhe

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...expect that I may have excessive protein in my urine (proteinuria). When I urinate it is kind of bubbly. I have no other signs of kidney problems. Could this be a by product of eating a lot of meat, or is this a waste protein from the body. If I increase my water consumption will this help?

Hi was diagnosed with Proteinuria 4 years back and was treated with cartico steroid for around 1 year. Proteinuria disappeared just within couple of weeks but the treatment was continued for around 8 months.

My all reports are consistently normal (Urine routine , spot test, 24 Hrs urine test, blood tests ..etc) since then but I have a swelling/edima around neck, abdomen and lower part of legs.

What could be the problem?
