  • It would mean that your kidney's are failing.......in the beginning stages of kidney failure you have elevated protein levels in your urine. Also if you're pregnant your protein levels go up if you have high blood pressure.......this would be preeclampsia (this is a dangerous condition that could put your life and the babies life in jeopardy).  Get to a doctor, since you don't have insurance see about getting medicaid.

  • I would go to the doctor.. Sounds like maybe you could have some real health issues.

  • You need to go to the doc. It could be nothing serious BUT it could also be a sign that your kidney's aren't working properly.

  • Not really something you want to ignore. It could be a side effect of your HBP or it could mean kidney problems.

  • could it be from my meds? also what would I be looking at another med to take? and does anyone know of alternitive things I can do to lower my HBP. I have been eating healthy, exercising, and taking my meds daily.

  • There is most likely a free/low cost clinic in your area. You NEED some labs done. Start calling around. I would start with the health department. They should be able to point you in the right direction
