Hi, my son got tests from urine analysis and he has too much protein in urine. Could it be a sigh of kidney inflammation? I am very concerned for his health.

The condition in which there are too much proteins in urine is called proteinuria. Normally, proteins are not passing filters in kidneys and they stay in blood. Their presence in blood is essential for keeping normal volume of blood in the body. If kidney filters called glomeruli are damaged, molecules like proteins can leave the blood and appear in urine. Inflammation in the glomeruli is called glomerulonephritis, and there are many disease that lead to inflammation and proteinuria. Diabetes, hypertension, bacterial or viral infections and other forms of kidney diseases can additionally damage kidneys.

Hello there. Well there is probably no need to worry but if the analysis has showed the protein in your child’s urine that means that his kidneys are not working properly and this can happen due the infection or swelling.

If the level of the protein was low that probably means that your child has harmless condition which is called proteinuria but the high level of protein in urine can decrease level of protein in blood and this can cause swelling in your son’s eyelids, ankles and legs.

Usually for this condition no treatment is needed but your doctor will probably want to recheck your son’s urine again after some time to see if the level of protein went down.
