      Why is the presence of blood or protein in urine considered abnormal?

      Because urine is a product of excretory system. Blood and protein should not be in the urine because we need them and must not excrete them out.

      The presence of blood and urine as an indication of broken filtration of kidney function, to be precise in Malpighian body part.

      Protein indicates filter damage – they should be too big to fit through, unless the holes are opened by damage. This often indicates an infection in the body, since "engorged" white blood cells often catch on thew filters, die, and their released digestive enzymes damage the filters.

      Blood should never go through the filters, even damaged ones. Red blood cells are indications of bleeding in the urinary system. The most common cause here is kidney stones. Infections in the system that ulcerate will release RBCs, too, but then there will also be white blood cells in the urine.

      But isn’t it normal for a person to have some small levels of protein during his first urine in the morning…..

      Yes ofcourse, there is determined threshold amount that is normally excreated out daily.

      why should there be blood in your urine?

      Urine is made from filtered blood. If you have blood in your urine, it means that there is something wrong with the filter. Blood should not be in urine.

      quote Dr.Stein:

      So urine is made from filtered blood. I see… 🙂

      You’ll probably have to wait for the results to be sure but the blood is probably a symptom of something else and not a result of the inflammation. Might have a common cause.

      When I went to do my medicals for my new job I was told that there was a high percentage of blood and protein in my urine. I went to my doctor a few weeks later and his tests showed the same. He has taken me off work and given me some medication to will do tests at the end of the week to see if there are any changes. I don’t feel any pain at all. What cure is there for this condition? ❓

      This must be quite common, I’m waiting on tests now. I don’t want to worry though.
