Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You are having protein in urine and that could be because of uncontrolled nephrotic syndrome. The underlying cause for nephrotic syndrome if identified than should be treated. You can be prescribed prednisone like steroid for specific duration to control nephrotic syndrome. Provide your reports and detail of medication you received for giving more comment. Consult urologist for examination.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
