    Good afternoon. There are many causes of protein in urine depending on the level of the protienuria. These include urinary tract infections, trauma, toxins, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, kidney disease(both acute and chronic), etc. Your doctor would investigate further to find out the cause and then offer treatment if necessary. Good luck
