Proteinuria is a condition characterized by the presence of greater than normal amounts of protein in the urine. Proteinuria is characteristic of renal disease and concentrations may be increased with diabetes, hypertension, nephritic syndrome (kidney disease involving inflammation), and drug nephrotoxicity (toxicity in the kidneys due to certain medications).
However, some diseases and conditions allow proteins to pass through the filters of your kidneys, causing protein in urine. Conditions that can cause a temporary rise in the levels of protein in urine, but don’t necessarily indicate kidney damage, includes dehydration, and emotional stress.
