Hello, thanks for the question.
Protein normally is not removed by the kidneys through urine. Protein that is detected in the urine indicates a disturbance during the screening process in the kidney so that it will be removed along with other metabolic waste products through urine, this is called proteinuria. Some things that can cause proteinuria in pregnant women include urinary tract infections (UTI), kidney damage, or other kidney disorders. In addition, urine protein in pregnant women is also often caused by preeclampsia, which is a condition of high blood pressure in pregnancy accompanied by manifestations of organ damage. Preeclampsia is not only dangerous for the mother but also for the fetus because it can cause reduced blood flow to the fetus that can cause fetal distress that is at risk of infant death if not handled properly. Some factors that increase the risk of preeclampsia include a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, old age pregnancy, having a family with a history of kidney disease, originating from certain races, taking certain drugs, suffering from immune system disorders, poisoning, or trauma. To determine the cause, you should consult your obstetrician again, the doctor will conduct a direct examination on the patient and suggest additional examinations if needed, such as blood tests, urine re-examination, and so forth. You should always routinely control blood pressure to the doctor, take medication as prescribed by the doctor, eat nutritious foods, reduce foods that contain excess salt, meet fluid needs, avoid stress, cigarettes, and alcohol, maintain ideal body weight, etc. .
Thus, hopefully it helps.
