I had a test on 24 Feb 2017 and got the results that I have protein in my urine. I also have blood pressure and I take a medicine of Advantec. So what should I do?

You should first have an exact quantitation of the amount of protein in your urine.  This can be done on a timed urine collection or on a spot specimen.  You should also have blood testing for a serum creatinine that can be used to calculate your estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR).  Once this is done, you can discuss your problem with your physician in order to establish a specific diagnosis.
