Protein in urine is a kind of symptom when patients are suffering from chronic kidney disease. CKD patients who have not show any protein in urine may even start to worry when they will also have protein in urine and how should they treat it.
Generally, as we mentioned in the premier articles, protein in urine is due to the damage of renal glomerular filtration membrane. When the pores in the membrane become bigger, some bigger molecules will leak out such as proteins, thus causing proteinuria. Chronic kidney disease can be divided into 5 stages according to the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). In addition, chronic kidney disease is a general term which almost includes all chronic kidney disease, both primary ones and secondary ones such as Hypertensive Nephropathy, Diabetic Nephropathy, and so on.
When does protein leak out in urine?
Firstly, all patients with primary renal glomerular nephritis can have protein which leaks out in urine, no matter which stage they are in.
Secondly, for patients with Diabetic Nephropathy, they begin to have protein in urine at stage 2 to stage 3.
Thirdly, as for those with Hypertensive Nephropathy, they will not have protein in urine until they are in the advanced stage.
Since that we have understood when protein in urine will leak out, we should take effective measures to prevent and treat when it appears really.
It is known to all that stages of Chronic Kidney Disease are made in the light of GRF which is short for glomerular filtration rate. According to the international standard, when glomerular filtration rate decreases to the range from 30 ml/min/1.73m2 to 59 ml/min/1.73m2, then we can diagnose that this disease has run to the third stage. With the arrival of stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease, some worrisome symptoms will appear and on the basis of these perceptible symptoms, we can infer how much our kidneys has been damaged.
Once chronic kidney disease is diagnosed, patients should treat it as soon as possible even in stage 1, during which there is no symptom as a result of the compensation ability. However, the damage inside of the kidney has had happened for a long time. GFR will not increase until the creatinine decreases by more than a half.
As we mentioned in the premier passage, most chronic kidney diseases are caused by immune disorder of the human body. When discharged in Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, patients will adopt the immunotherapy which is a combination of western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine and advanced than both of them.
