24-Hour Protein Excretion (Urine) During Pregnancy

    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.
