Went to my 3 month check-up have lost 52lbs, so feeling great. However, I have a large amount of Protein in my Urine, doctor did Blood Work and I am waiting to hear back from it. He said this was not typical, so I am kinda freaking out, Has anyone else had this happen? If so what was the outcome…….

http://en.wikipedia....iki/Proteinuria

"Proteinuria can also be caused by certain biological agents, such as bevacizumab (Avastin) used in cancer treatment, or by excessive fluid intake (drinking in excess of 4 litres of water per day)."

Could this be the reason?

Its from your high protein diet. Ad toasted bread crumbs to your meats and drink lower protein drinks per serving. Drink lots of water.

It could be a lot of different things. I wouldn't consider the medical advice given here until you have had a chance to discuss it with your Dr.

Goldygirl I have to agree with Johnlatte, the only medical advice I would take is that of my Physician. Your health and well being is too important, I am a RN I would never advise anyone on health related issues on this or any other forum.

Sometimes losing large amounts of weight quickly can cause damage to the kidneys and subsequent loss of protein in your urine. No it isn't normal but adding breadcrumbs likely won't help anything. Are you taking a lot of NSAIDs like ibuprofen and such? Excessive protein intake can cause some 'spillage' into your ursine but prob not enough to concern your doctor. How much protein was in your urine?

Best of luck and whatever the cause I'm sure you're in good hands with your doctor!

Haha don't be a bread crumb hater. In the bible it says to eat unleven bread. It cleans the body geez.
