The protein in urine could be due to urinary tract infection or some form of kidney damage like nephritis.

I suggest you investigate with urine routine microscopic examination and culture for primary work up.

Ultrasonography of pelvis also should be done to look for any kidney pathology if present. You can revert back with reports to comment further.

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

Take care

I had a complete physical today and full blood work last week . At 80 years of age, taking 81 mg of aspirin daily with a vitamin B complex, with a 119/60 blood pressure and 95 respiration rate, I was told by my doctor that all is good except that I have a small amount of protein in my urine but not to worry. I walk 3 miles daily with my wife and do 30 minutes of excersis every morning. What could be the cause of a small amount of protein in my urine? I eat very health foods, not overweight.

I have been on coumadin for about 5 years because of a pulmonary embolism that I had when I was 37years old and they could not find a cause. Now I am vitamin D deficient and there is protein in my urine, in the last 2 years I broke a rib and fractured my collar bone, there is alot of kidney disease in my family so I am concerned but my blood test always show my kidneys as normal, what do you think might be going on?
