Proteinuria is a condition in which urine contains an abnormal amount of protein. People with diabetes, hypertension, or certain family backgrounds are at risk for proteinuria. Proteinuria may be a sign that your kidneys are damaged and that you are at risk for end-stage renal disease. You may have proteinuria without noticing any signs or symptoms. Testing is the only way to find out how much protein you have in your urine. Groups at risk for proteinuria and kidney failure include African Americans, American Indians, Hispanic Americans, Pacific Islander Americans, people who are older or overweight, and people who have a family history of kidney disease.
