Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Preventing protein in the urine is not always possible. It may be due to certain health conditions. Proteinuria, also known as albuminuria or urine albumin, is too much protein in the urine. The kidneys normally excrete under 150 milligrams of protein in the urine in a day. When the amount is higher, something is wrong with the kidneys.

Persistent proteinuria is a symptom of diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease or hypertension (high blood pressure). Treating the disease, for instance, lowering blood pressure in hypertension, or blood sugar in diabetes, will relieve proteinuria.

Overweight and advanced age also increase the likelihood of developing the persistent form.

The presence of proteinuria can be detected by urinalysis (testing the urine). Testing is commonly done more than once to note any changes in the amount of protein in the urine.

Talk to your doctor about what may be causing protein in the urine for you.
