Hi,

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
