My first 24 our urine in the hospital had trace protein, the next day's 24 hour it went through the roof, so mine changed within 24 hours. When I went, I went FAST..thank GOD I was already in the hospital.

Dip tests can be really inaccurate - that is why going off of the 24 hour urine is the best bet. My guess is that you did have some protein when you dipped trace, but it can increase dramatically very quickly.

Actually on a Friday I had the trace and then the very next day I had a 24 hour urine test since my bp was 160/90 and it said 5000. Could it really chance that much in 24 hours?

Trace is a minute amount. 5000 is waaay beyond trace.

protein in urine

Postby ktsl123 » Sat Oct 17, 638939 6:16 am

I had requested my labs from when I was pregnant with my son who I had preeclampcia with and delivered at 35 and 2 days.

On my labs there is a column where is says urine glucose and protein and 5 days before I had my son it said negative urine glucose and TRACE of protein.

when I delivered my son it said I had 5000 of protein in my urine. So when it says trace does that mean it could have been 5000? Or did I noT have too much protein in my urine yet???
