GFR (Glomerular filtration rate) should be 95-105 ml/min and yours is low (55). This means that the kidneys are not working well and you may be experiencing kidney failure. Diagnostics will also depend upon from where the proteins were measured (in the blood or in the urine). I'll suppose that the proteins were measured in the urine. Such high amount of proteins in the urine is also a result of kidney failure. Increased uric acid in the blood also suggests renal failure. Calcium diagnostics also depend upon where the calcium was taken from - the blood or the urine.
You can consult a nephrologist for an expert opinion, advice, diagnosis, and treatment of your symptoms.
