As usual the information is fragmentary. We know she has proteinuria that is near or at the borderline level and no other information. Most importantly we do not know both her renal function (at least creatinine level) and her blood pressure, but at four weeks of gestation she does not have preeclampsia.
What is important here is that she is being evaluated by a nephrologist, preferably board certified, and experienced with renal disease and hypertension in pregnancy. Her OB caregiver, too, should be a high risk specialist, the two coordinating her care.
