Hi Dr Stan here to help you today. You need an additional test called a microalbuminuria as a follow up to see if there is a problem. It could be that you exercised before the urine test, which could elevate the protein level. Hypertension and diabetes can also increase the protein level, so if you have not been diagnosed with these, there is little to worry about. I hope this is helpful and the follow up test is normal. The medications you take do not elevate protein levels in the urine. I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. I am compensated only after you provide a positive rating of 3-5 stars.
