Brief Answer:
Glomeruli damage can cause proteinuria.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Presence of proteins indicate that glomerulus is affected. It may be a primary glomerular condition or due to obstruction / infection from a kidney stone. Routine urinary examination, ultrasound scan and basic renal panel tests will help us identify the cause. Without these tests, I don't think you will be able to find whether you have a primary glomerular condition or are these secondary to kidney stone. I suggest you to discuss with your treating doctor about these tests.

If you have history of long standing high blood pressure and renal disease, my diagnosis will be more towards primary glomerular pathology than kidney stone initiated event.

In the meanwhile, I would suggest you to avoid protein food( meat dairy products, nuts, cheese).
You need to control your blood pressure by taking less sodium(fast food, canned food, pickles, cheese).

If you have any questions I will be happy to help you.

Thank you.
