That would be considered a high level of protein in the urine. There's no way to determine how severe this is though without an actual evaluation of your kidneys. You will need to have a full panel of bloodwork done to see if you have kidney disease as the cause of the protein in the urine. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
