Nephrologist 's  Response
You need to check your 24 hr urinary protein or Urine protein creatinine ratio, Lipid profile and creatinine. It looks like nephrotic syndrome. If proteinuria is not treated in the long run may lead to renal failure. You need assesment by a nephrologist and possibly a kidney biopsy before planning treatment.

Welcome to HCM.
Protein in the urine is also called albuminuria is indicative of abnormally high permeability of the glomerular filtration membrane of the nephron.
this can be caused by several things:
-excessive exertion
-excessively high protein intake
or more seriously...
-kidney trauma
-excessively high hypertension
You can also get serum creatinine levels checked and ultrasonography. For further managment consult a doctor after the reports are available.
