Protein Positive During Urine Test After Consumption Of Soy Milk?
Good afternoon Right now I am pregnant, yesterday I had a urine test before, I drank soy milk, and after the urine test, the results were positive protein … is that dangerous? Please clarify. Thank you
Good evening Eka Setiawati, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Normally, protein will not be found at the time of urine examination even during pregnancy because the function of the blood vessels in the kidneys is still good and can filter the protein properly so that it does not come out through the urine.
Consumption of foods high in protein before the examination is done does not affect the results of the examination because as previously said that protein normally will not be found in the urine.
If during pregnancy there is protein in the urine, then there is most likely a condition called preeclampsia in pregnancy where this condition is particularly marked by the discovery of protein in the urine and also the presence of high blood pressure that is experienced at gestational age above 20 weeks. This condition itself can be a risk factor for various dangerous complications during pregnancy such as eclampsia (seizure sata pregnancy), HELLP syndrome, premature birth, fetal growth disorders until the release of the placenta from the place of attachment.
Therefore, it is highly recommended for you to carry out your pregnancy control and then always by an obstetrician to evaluate both your physical condition and the condition of the fetus in your womb. It is also advisable to always carry out pregnancy control in accordance with the advice given by your doctor.
I hope this helps.
