What is the cause and what does it mean? 2. Can it be dangerous for me if you leave it for a long time? 3. Are there ways / foods that help neutralize the positive urine to be neutral / negative? 4.

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The human kidney has the function to filter blood, remove toxic metabolic wastes from urine, regulate electrolytes and the amount of fluid in the body. Proteins that have large molecules should not escape the kidney filtering, so they will not be wasted and will not be found in the urine. If you find protein in your urine, then there is a big possibility of damage to the filter structure in your kidneys (called glomerolus). The most common causes of proteinuria (the discovery of protein in the urine) are diseases such as diabetes and hypertension (both are diseases that very often cause complications in the kidneys). Other possible causes of proteinuria are autoimmune diseases (such as lupus), side effects of nephrotoxic drugs, trauma / injury to the kidneys, infections of the kidneys, certain toxins. Other causes that are rarely found are diseases that cause excessive production of protein in the body such as multiple myeloma and amyloidosis.
Seeing the many possible causes of proteinuria, you should immediately conduct an examination to an internal medicine doctor for further evaluation. The release of protein in the urine is not trivial. This can cause further damage to the kidneys to cause kidney failure. because of that the examination to the doctor must not be delayed. Because until now there is no known definite cause of your proteinuria, there is no food / drink that is recommended or prohibited for your consumption. Consumption of water alone will probably not help to neutralize the condition (see again the causes above, most likely these conditions will not be cured by drinking water alone).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
