What is Protein Excretion?
Protein excretion is the amount of protein excreted or passed out of the body in urine. Some excretion is normal, but excessive excretion can be a sign of heart failure, glomerular disorders, HIV, hepatitis B or C, metal ingestion or lymphoma.
There is no such thing as low protein excretion as some people don’t excrete any protein in urine.
