Why do I need this test?

Normally, healthy individuals do not have protein in their urine. Although a small amount of protein in the urine is normally not a problem, larger levels of protein in the urine may indicate that the kidneys are not working properly or they might suggest a urinary tract infection (UTI). High levels of protein in the urine can also be a sign of:

  • diabetes
  • dehydration
  • amyloidosis (a build-up of protein in the body’s tissues)
  • hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • preeclampsia (high blood pressure in pregnant women)
  • heavy metal poisoning
  • polycystic kidney disease
  • congestive heart failure
  • glomerulonephritis (a kidney disease that causes kidney damage)
  • systemic lupus erythematosus (an autoimmune disease)
  • Goodpasture syndrome (an autoimmune disease)
  • multiple myeloma (a type of cancer affecting bone marrow)
  • bladder tumor or cancer

Warnings

Do not touch test areas of Urinalysis Reagent Strips.
Do not store the sample for longer than 1 hour before testing.
Comparison to the colour chart is dependent on the interpretation of the individual and must ideally be read by a Doctor or health care professional.
Interpretation of results are read at users own risk.

Expected Values

Protein: Normal urine specimens ordinarily contain some protein (<20mg/dL) therefore only persistent elevated levels of urine protein indicate kidney or urinary tract disease. The persistent results of trace levels or over, indicate significant proteinuria and thus further clinical testing is needed to evaluate the results.

Specimen Collection and Preparation

Collect fresh urine in a clean container and test as soon as possible. Do not centrifuge. If testing cannot be performed within one hour after collection of urine, refrigerate the specimen immediately. Allow refrigerated specimen to return to room temperature before testing.

Storage

Store at room temperature between 2-30C (35.6F-86F).
Leave away form direct sunlight and moisture.
Do not use after expiration date.
