Okay this is pretty serious... as most of you know i've lost a ton of weight and am now putting on muscle, well i'm taking in a lot of protein most of it coming from protein shakes. Well about a week or two ago I went to my doctor to just have a routine blood and urine test to make sure everything is okay and it came back that there was protein in my urine, or "proteinuria" in medical talk. Well I was just looking on the list of MEPS disqualifiers and proteinuria was one of them . My protein intake was pretty high, 250mg of protein AT LEAST everyday for the past several months, so it's no wonder protein showed up in my urine. Since the results came back i've dramatically reduced my intake to 150g per day and will be retested in a few weeks. WHen I went to MEPS the first time everything was fine because I wasn't taking in such ridiculous amounts of protein but now i'm afraid (SCARED SHITLESS) that it will show up the second time I go to MEPS and I would get DQed which would be my absolute worst nightmere, even if I cut out almost all protein right now will it still show up in my urine? If I cut it out, how long will it take before it stops showing up in my urine?
