My 13 year old daughter has high amounts of protein in urine, discovered during a routine physical. Here are some findings from recent urinalysis as well as an ultrasound: PROTEIN, URINE, CONC. 71 NOT ESTAB MG/DL Final CPL Reference interval for random urine samples has not been established. CREATININE, URINE, CONC. 38.9 NOT ESTAB MG/DL Final CPL Reference interval for random urine samples has not been established. CALC PROTEIN/CREATININE 1825 SEE BELOW MG/G CREAT Final CPL ***** INTERPRETIVE INFORMATION ***** NKF ADULT AND CHILD NORMAL RANGE . . . . .. MG/G CREAT 2-3,000 NKF NORMAL RANGES PREFERRED FOR FIRST MORNING VOID, BUT NON-FIRST MORNING SPECIMENS ARE ACCEPTABLE. FOR ASSESSMENT OF NON-FIRST MORNING SPECIMENS, ADDITIONAL INTERPRETIVE INFORMATION PROVIDED BELOW: AGE MALE FEMALE (MG/G CREAT) (MG/G CREAT) 7-9

The information that you provide suggests that you daughter has an excessive amount of protein in the urine. The normal range for a young female should be less than 150 milligrams per gram of creatinine. The number that you quote is 1825. Hence, your daughter may need to consult with a nephrologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
