Protien in Urine?

An_253223 posted:
Hello:

My 3yr daughter had a recent urine test for UTI. The doctor said there was no bacteria, but they were going to culture it over night.

He also said there was protein and ketones found in her urine. I am concerned that there might be something else going on, as it is my understanding that there should be no protein found in the urine. Should I be concerned and talk with them more about what protein in urine means and if it could be serious?

Minimal amounts of protein can be normal. As can some small amount of ketone depending on diet and illness. Try not to worry too much. Wait for the doc to call you with the results. It could be something as simple as an infection.
