    Question Protein n urine

    Shop Now
    Hi all, I just got a shock when my application for additional life insurance as rejected due to the results of my urinalysis. My specific gravity was 1.038 where the top of the range was defined as 1.035, my total protein was 76 where the top of the range was defined as 14.9, and my protein/creatinine was .34 where the top of the range was defined as .30. So, in a nutshell, should I be worried? Does my diet need modification?

    Did you eat before the pee?
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I would suggest getting some follow up care. While fasting, dehydration, or heavy exertion can cause protein in your urine it can also be a sign of serious kidney disease. You should at a minimum have a repeat test when you are not fasting (although 10 hours really is not enough to cause issues for most people) and when you are fully hydrated.
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )
