Just putting a feeler out for a friend. He just had triceps surgery and they said he had high protein in his urine which could be kidney issues, and told him to back off eating and drinking protein. He is late 60s, competing in bodybuilding for 35 years, and in amazing health. I thought he was mid 50s until I went to support him in a show and they announced how old he is!
He has been on TRT for I do not know how many years. I know doctors are quick to bash high protein diets cause kidney damage, but the studies people used way back to spread those rumors were folks who already had kidney issues.
Would something with surgery cause his labs to come out like this? They are sending his results to someone at UCLA to review.
Just looking out for him and wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what some possible explanations are.
