Having too much protein content in your urine will result in a condition called Proteinuria. If left unchecked, this can lead to damage to your kidneys. Usually, people who have diabetes are at a higher risk of developing proteinuria. This would have resulted from long-term hypertension or hyperglycemia. This condition may also be a symptom of other underlying diseases. When your kidneys are functioning well, they'll be able to filter waste. But when you have such a condition, your kidneys won't be able to function optimally.
Proteinuria doesn't usually manifest any symptoms unless the condition has already become severe. So how do you treat something which doesn't have any symptoms? It's important to have yourself checked regularly. You need to do this especially if you have the risk factors. Treatment will first depend on identifying the underlying cause of the condition. Your proteinuria may indicate a more serious kidney disease. If you find out what that is, you need the corresponding medical treatment. However, if it's a temporary or mild case of proteinuria, you may not even need treatment.
