Positive Urine Test +1 When 37 Weeks Pregnant?
Happy mlm this afternoon I checked into the Community Health Center at this time I was 37 weeks pregnant when I was told to do a urine test but he said I was positive +1 u0026amp; my blood pressure is low cm 90 u0026amp; my feet are swollen about the danger, please explain …
Good evening, thanks for the question
The presence of protein in the urine or proteinuria during pregnancy is often associated with the incidence of pre-eclampsia. Pre-eclampsia is diagnosed with hypertension (> 140/90 mmhg), proteinuria (> +1 or> 300 mg / 24 hours) and signs of organ disorders (swelling, headache, abdominal pain, vomiting) at gestational age greater than 20 Sunday. These criteria must be met to be said to be pre-eclampsia.
In your case where there is protenuria only with blood pressure tending to be normal then it cannot be said pre eclampsia. However, based on these results in the future further monitoring is needed because there is still a risk of high blood pressure and organ damage that occurs acutely during labor.
In addition, the presence of proteinuria can indicate kidney organ abnormalities that are not related to the condition of pre-eclampsia. For example, urinary tract infections or renal parenchymal disease. If the examination does not lead to pre-eclampsia or urinary tract infections, it may be necessary to consult a kidney specialist to evaluate the condition.
Carry out further consultations with obstetricians for further examination and treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
