Is Proteinuria Serious and Diet Attention in Kidney Disease

Due to the filtrating function of glomerular filtration membrane and the reabsorption of renal tubules, the urine protein of common people is little, namely the daily discharge quantity is < 150mg. The nature of protein examination is negative. When urine protein is a lot, it can be tested by urine routine test, and that is called Proteinuria. If the urine protein ≥ 3.5g/24h, it is called amount urine protein.Proteinuria and Kidney Disease
Prroteinuria is one typical symptom of Kidney Disease. But the quantity of urine protein cannot show the severity of kidney disease. Those patients with Chronic Kidney Diseasehave little urine protein, but that doesn’t mean their disease is slight. At the same time, amounts of urine protein don’t also show the serious kidney disease, like Nephritis with mild lesion or slight proliferation of mesangial cells, of which the urine protein is up to tens grams. Meanwhile, with serious focal segmental sclerosis nephritis, the urine protein is only few grams. Therefore, the quantity of urine protein is not direct manifestation of severity of kidney disease which depends on the kind and damage to renal functions.Diet for Reducing Proteinuria in Nephrotic Syndrome and Fruits for FSGS Patients With Severe Proteinuria
Even that, patients with urine protein should take care of their daily diet. When patient bear amounts of urine protein, they can supplement protein by proper diet. But they should take in high quality protein not plant protein.
The daily intake of protein should be in 0.6-0.8g/kg of weight. For patients with uremia during dialysis, the protein intake should be up to 1.2-1.5g/kg weight. Due to plenty of protein lost, patients with Nephrotic Syndrome should relieve low protein content by taking in some high quality protein. But for patients with Azotemia or early stage of Renal Insufficiency, they should limit protein, or that will worsen renal functions. Therefore, patients should adjust their diet under the guidance of doctors.Proteinuria and Kidney Disease
