Re: [IP] microalbumin

   Excellent advice & clarification regarding "false positives" for 
protein...orthostatic proteinuria (shedding protein when upright or very 
active) is not at all uncommon. Melissa has now done the 24 hr collection at 
least a dozen times & each time, she has a "couch potato" Sunday, in which 
she essentially hangs around the house, doing nothing taxing, completing her 
collection the following morning before school.  What made her saga so weird 
was that the overnight collection and the first morning urine were NORMAL, 
even when her 24 hr collection was astoundingly high. Hence, the label "leaky 
kidney kid" from the researcher I queried about her! LOL
