Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The trace of albumin is not necessarily a sign of damage to kidney so don't worry.It can happen due to infection in urine;pregnancy also .No need to worry if you feel you have increased frequency of urine consult a doctor who will prescribe antibiotic if required & you should be fine .
Thanks

Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.Your reports doesn't indicate kidney damage.get a urine culture done and if any organism is identified then proper antibiotics may be given,but in consultation with your doctor.traces of albumin has no significance and can be found in so many cases without any kidney damage.Thanks and good luck.

During a health check for immigration purposes my 11 and a half year old daughter showed high levels of protein in her urine. Subsequent blood tests found her blood to be normal but her urine test shows microalbumin levels of 288 (they should be less than 20) and Urine ACR of 172.9 (should be less than 3.4). I was referred to a nephrologist and have to wait two weeks for the appointment. My concern is that this should have been treated with more urgency. She has no symptoms of illness at all. Please could you comment on this.

Hi there my 4 year daughter has suffered from urine infections and she had a really bad one at Christmas time where she had very high temp of 40c and when urine sample dipped it showed white blood cells, protein etc. Since Christmas she was very quiet, subdued and tired so much so the nursery had commented on how she was. She often complains of a sore tummy and I have put in other urine sample which came back clear for a urine infection however there was still blood present. Her GP has refered her to paediatrics but my concern is that she has had a low grade temp of 37.7 for weeks now and an on/off tummy pains, she is more lively now but still gets tired at times. I just wanted to know what to ask the paediatrians when I see them and if I should be concerned that theres maybe something else underlying.
