  • Protein in urine

    Does anyone else always have protein in their urine cultures? Is this an IC symptom? My urologist never says anything about it, I just see it on my results in MyChart. Just wondering if I should be concerned about my kidneys.

    I suspect that if this were anything significant your urologist would say something. I did a little research and a small amount is normal. If more than the small amount, it could be a sign of a kidney problem. Since you are concerned, I suggest you telephone your urologist's office and ask.

    Warm hugs,

    Stay safe

      When I asked the urologist’s nurse she said that’s something to ask my primary Dr. I thought that was odd, since it seems like a urologist question so now I guess I’ll try my regular Dr.

        Ok so I asked my primary Dr and she said since I always have blood in my urine from the IC the protein is showing up in the blood which makes sense.
