Hello michal;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The BP of 171/106 is high and if it is constantly high you need to consult a doctor and get examined.Commonly used electronic BP apparatus may at times show variable readings so it is better to get it checked with a manual mercury BP apparatus.So get the BP checked and then looking at your age the doctor may start you on some antihypertensive medicines to control you BP if it is high.
Take care.
Thanks

thanks for the query,
well you can never say when the blood pressure can increase on its own as there are many factors causing high blood pressure and most common cause of high bp is primary hypertension for which ther is noa etiology. just get your blood pressure checked by a doctor thrice before starting medications.
take care.

I am 44 year old female and last year the protein in my urine was 17.1 my doctor sent me for a CAT scan and the urologist said my kidneys were normal even though there was a small fatty lesion he said I probably had since birth. This year I was told the protein in my urine is 106 and my microalbumin/ creatinine ratio is 61. I do not have diabetes or high blood pressure. I am of average height and weight. My cholesterol is 231 and the doctor feels it is due to genetic and is watching it and has not put me on medication. Other than that my blood sample was fine. I am going for a renal ultrasound and I have an appointment with a nephrologist . But I am very concerned especially after researching. I also get up about once a night to pee. There are some very scattered and scarce bubbles when I pee but only if I actually look down as I pee do I see them. If I pee, wipe and stand the bubbles are gone. I do most walk every day at least 2 miles and I will sometimes also take a Zumba class(I don t think that is considered excess exercise though). I take motrin for any aches or pains and earlier in the week I was on sudafed and claratin. Thank you for your help and input. This is stressing me out and I don t see the doctor until 8/16.
