Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru

Does anyone think they can help me out?

    You should probably just eat your hair.

    :yes:


    You need to go back and ask. Write a list of questions so you don't forgot that way you will get the information you want :)

    what it means is you've had a test - probably blood or urine - and the results from that show unusual levels of some proteins. In a urine sample this can be indicative of kidney problems but there can be other causes.

    If that is where you are, there isn't much more they can tell you at the moment, there needs to be further investigation to find out what is causing the levels.

    Oh yeah! I had mad levels of proteins (whatever they were I dunno - I was too busy dying to listen to the Dr) and I had a severe liver infection. I was put straight into hospital though. If you've not been instructed to do anything or take anything then I don't think it can be harmful?

    Well I can't really give you much more info because they didn't tell me anymore info. Except that there is something wrong with my protein levels and when I said like well what is wrong with them, they just said well they are not right and it mean that my muscle levels could start decreasing. I was like OH and then that was it.

    I would guess this means they are low. This is something that happens with malnutrition. Do they know about your eating problems?

    Well I would guess they do. But not sure.

    Well tbh I would make sure, cause if they don't, I think finding out is going to solve a lot of mysteries for them. Will probably save yourself a lot of time and testing too :)

    Yeah should tell them when I next see them.
