    Hi has anyone ever heard of why children would have protein in their urine ? The doc told my daughter that my
    grandson showed protein in the urine and so concerned. He will have to have blood work done tommorrow. He drinks alot
    of water and goes to the potty all day. His sugar in urine was fine.. I'm so worried... Barb

    ...if it was only a small amount of protein in the urine it is probably nothing to worry about.

    Here is a good site for you to do some research and hopefully give you a little peace of mind.

    I hope everything works out and I will keep good thoughts for the little one.

    Thanks,

    But, has he had blood work done for diabetes? A glucose tolerence test?

    He has all the sypmptoms for diabetes. I would not rely on a urine test for sugar.

    (I'm a diabetic, type 2)
