Ok, let’s net this out. Recently, I went to my endo (also t1d) and I showed a little protein in my urine (t1d 48 years, podder omnipod 5)… i was a bit concerned but I went to my urologist for a standard check up… they also did a dipstick and saw a trace amount of protein. So…my doc did a comprehensive work up of my urine – sent off to the lab for a complete and much more sensitive analysis
Results came back extremely NEG. No protein, no abnormalities whatsoever - less sensitive tests such as a dipstick do not always deliver accurate results - in other words, when looked at even closer - everything was fine - dipsticks are not as sensitive.
Oh and one more thing, my urologist’s name is Dr. Weiner
