R80: Isolated proteinuria
You excrete more protein than usual in your urine.
There are normally 2 kidneys in the body. They filter blood and create urine. They thus help to detoxify the body. Furthermore, the kidneys regulate the blood pressure and salt content in the blood, among other things. Only certain substances are emitted via urine to detoxify the body. Proteins are normally only excreted in urine in small quantities. Your body has been excreting too much protein in the urine.
There are many different reasons for having too much protein in your urine. For example, people with muscle or kidney disorders may excrete more protein than usual. When experiencing stress or engaging in strenuous physical activity, people may also excrete more protein than usual.
