Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to HCM,

I understand that you have 954mg % protein in 24 hours. However this amount of protein is not expected in pregnancy.

Presence of protein in urine may be due to some issue with the kidney or a condition called preeclampsia where there is a rise of blood pressure during pregnancy. So you will need an evaluation for the cause of this protein in urine. I suggest that you see your obstetrician, get a blood pressure as well as kidney function and renal scan done to look for any other cause and then only a proper management plan can be decided.

There are no home remedies as such and treatment will depend upon the cause.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
