Hello. Does the consumption of excessive protein affect the results of the tests?
Hello Icha, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Pregnancy is the occurrence of an egg fertilization by sperm, which will form zygot and develop into a fetus attached to the uterine wall. Pregnancy is highly expected of married couples, especially newly married couples, and many do programs to make pregnancy happen quickly.
In knowing the existence of a pregnancy can be done by various methods, but before that must be understood several signs of pregnancy. There are uncertain signs of pregnancy, possible signs of pregnancy, and definite signs of pregnancy. Uncertain signs of amenorrhea or no menstruation, nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, frequent urination. One might be pregnant, one of which is a positive test pack, and a sure sign is the discovery of fetal movements, heart rate, pockets of pregnancy / fetus during examination.
Responding to your question, the test pack in detecting pregnancy works by measuring the level of the hormone HCg in urine. Hormone hormone itself is produced after the fertilized egg is attached to the uterine wall. During pregnancy there is a surge in the production of these hormones, and is detected generally 6 days after fertilization occurs. The test pack itself consists of various kinds such as a test pack with blood and urine samples. In the test pack with urine samples can be done independently at home.
Responding to your question, regarding excessive protein consumption on test pack results, there is no research that justifies the condition. But what you need to know is that there are false positive results when using a test pack at home can be caused by various things such as:
Wrong or dirty inspection methods.
Blood in the urine, this can not necessarily be seen from the color of urine.
Protein in urine, this is usually associated with disorders of the kidneys not based on protein intake immediately consult a doctor if this happens.
The use of certain drugs such as anti-seizures, hormone therapy, etc.
For this reason, I advise you to check your obstetrician to ensure there is a pregnancy in yourself.
That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
