I dont know if it is covered here. I havent seen it specifically.
I think there should be a MANDANTORY mention of the coca cola pee on handouts that the drs offices give to us .
If I had known about this I would have been saved from my HELLP ( which they never diagnosed me with but I had the rib/liver pain, shoulder pain, 20,000 platlets and two bags given to me, IN ICU for 2 days and didnt see my son till after then, on a respirator for almost an hour to "bring me to(back)".... I was lucky. Our baby was lucky.
This protein in the urine I think is a BIG thing. Granted maybe it didnt happen till it was "almost too late" but had I know I would have been at the hospital 4 or 5 days sooner and maybe not have had to have an ER C Section or be away from my baby and be in ICU without him. He was fine.
IF ANYONE READS THIS THAT HAS URINE THAT LOOKS LIKE COCA COLA(Dark)
PLEASE GO TO THE DR OR ER ROOM IMMEDIATELY......
I hope I can save someone and their baby the anguish and perhaps their lives.
