Re : 8 months postpartum and still protein in urine

<t>The 24 hr test does contain a blood collection as part of it (as many of us know). The two components (urine values and blood results) allow for an overall assessment of kidney function.

Re : Autoimmune disorders

<t>Adding on...<br/> <br/> With the Lupus diagnosis there are many women who have kidneys that have been impacted by the disease itself. Knowing that a woman has Lupus allows for the doctor to run additional 24 hr urine tests to not only establish a baseline but also monitor against it knowing that ...

Re : BP up... from pain?

<t>Pain can in theory cause blood pressure to raise while having it however it wouldn't have 'started' BP to rise due to it. (Hope that makes sense). You are starting to go towards your third trimester at which time it can also begin to rise (and does so for even non hypertensive women).<br/> <br/> ...

Re : I am back unfortunately

<t>This is wonderful news! I was always told that as long as my swelling went away at night and I wasn't swelling anywhere else that yes, it was 'suppose' to be normal.
