How to decrease protein in urine? This is a question which is put forward by chronic kidney disease patients who have protein in urine and the urine which contains a large amount of protein is called proteinuria. Generally, in a normal condition, there is a little protein in urine, the amount of which is about 40mg to 80mg. The maximum is 150mg. Youngsters have higher level. If there is more than 150mg per day, we can call it proteinuria.
Proteinuria can be caused by many factors such as long time standing, taking
exercise, and so on, all of which are just for the time being and can disappear
some time later. However, if the protein in urine lasts for more than three
months, which is often accompanied by hematuria, and sometimes with decreased
glomerular filtration rate, which is short for GFR.
Long time protein in urine will of course lead to a series of damage.
Firstly, if there is more protein in urine, there consequently must be less
protein in the plasma, which is called hypoproteinemia in clinic. In turn,
hypoproteinemia will lead to edema or swelling in the body. So once there
appears protein in urine, especially when it lasts for a long time, chronic
kidney disease patients will become anxious and seek for an effective
To decrease the protein in urine has become the focus of the chronic kidney
disease patients. How to achieve it? To solve the problem, we should firstly
figure out why and where protein leaks out into urine. Protein leaks out from
the filtration membrane of kidney, the structure of which is just like a
griddle, in which, there are many pores. The diameter of the pores is limited,
so in normal condition, there are only small molecules which can pass through
such as creatinine. However, when the kidney suffers from damage, the filtration
membrane will also be damaged, the diameter of whose pores will also change. In
this case, some bigger molecules such as protein will leak out, thus causing
protein in urine.
Since that we have figured out the reason why there appears protein in urine,
we can think over the solutions to decrease the protein in urine.
Chinese Medicine can make it. It is abstracted from traditional Chinese
medicine, which is more convenient and the ratio of use is also more effective
in contrast to the traditional Chinese medicine. It is from Chinese herbs
mostly, so it contains nutritious and active materials which can give nutrition
to the damaged filtration membrane, thus repairing it. After that, the pores’
diameter turns normal, thus stopping the leaking out of protein in urine.
