Protein (PRO)

Most proteins are normally contained in blood because they are too large to fit through the glomerular membrane. However, if these filters are damaged, proteinuria – the presence of protein in urine – can occur. Protein in urine is a frequent symptom of renal diseases, but it is not very specific. Protein levels in urine can be temporarily increased due to exercise, fever or stress.
