Good morning Ria Ayu, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Protein in urine in pregnant women can occur in conditions: urinary tract infections, kidney disorders or preeclampsia.
Dipstick urine examination (the results are + -, +, + 2, + 3) is not an accurate check in estimating proteinuria levels, but it is better to use quantitative protein levels calculation with collected urine. Preeclampsia is currently defined as pregnancy accompanied by hypertension and proteinuria which only appear after 20 weeks' gestation. Although these two criteria are still the classic definitions of preeclampsia, some women with preeclampsia can develop hypertension without proteinura.
Protein in urine can also be found in urinary tract infections or kidney dysfunction.
It is recommended to you to frequency control the control to the doctor or obstetrician, especially the control for blood pressure and protein in urine. It is also advisable for a sister to do a complete urine check so that urine sediments can be identified whether it shows a urinary tract infection or kidney disorders or something else; blood tests can also be done to find out the function of your kidneys (when in control, if the doctor assesses any indication, you may be asked to do the examination).
Things that can be done is to drink enough water at least 2 liters a day, rest and eat a balanced nutritious food, and maintain cleanliness around the genitals (change pants 2 times a day, clean the genitals from front to back and do not need to clean the genitals with special cleaning fluid).
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good morning.
