What Causes Excessive Protein In Urine?
A detailed evaluation is needed.
Thanks for trusting HealthcareMagic!
I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns.
As per your description, you are having a medical condition called "proteinuria". It is nothing but excessive secretion of proteins in urine. It can be caused by many conditions ranging from mild UTI(urinary tract infection) to even rare conditions like SLE.
I'd suggest you consult a Nephrologist/physician and get the following things done:-
(1)- Since you are diabetic, strict control of your blood sugar level is essential. Uncontrolled diabetes is a common cause for proteinuria especially among elderly.
(2)- Routine checkups for hypertension is also necessary as hypertension can also cause protein loss in urine.
(3)- Do a 24-hour urine protein assay to assess the severity of the disease.
(4)- Drink plenty of water. Dehydration and strenuous physical exertion cause protein loss in urine.
(5)- Avoid nephrotoxic drugs like pain killers.
(6)- Get an ANA profile to rule out SLE.
(7)- In severe cases, a kidney biopsy may be needed to make the correct diagnosis and rule out conditions like nephrotic syndrome.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
