My husband is an athlete and is really into fitness, lately he has been adding TONs of protein shakes to his workouts like 5 a day. Is this the reason for the high numbers?

Answers are for informational purposes only. You should always see a doctor when you have a medical question.

yes this is most likely the reason.

make sure he keeps in mind that the body has a limit to the amount of protein a can absorb.

once he reaches its limit, the rest will be excreted.

if he is taking in more than 200 grams per day that is likely excessive

even if he is taking 150 that is likely to much.

if you have follow up questions, please ask prior to accepting.
