Is Proteinuria disqualifying?


Depending on the amount, protein in the urine (Proteinuria) may indicate significant renal disease. The Medical Examiner may certify, time limit, or disqualify a commercial driver with Proteinuria. The decision is based on whether the examiner believes that Proteinuria may adversely affect safe driving regardless of the examiner’s decision. The driver should be referred for follow-up.
