My 2 years old son has been detected with ++ Albumin level in R.E of urine. He has some puffiness over his eyelids .What are the consequences? Is there any food restriction? What should I do?

It means that he is loosing proteins in the urine due to some kidney problem. Please consult a pediatrician or pediatric nephrologist. These conditions are treatable.
