Can A Kidney Cyst Cause High Protein In Urine

Can A Kidney Cyst Cause High Protein In UrinePatient with kidney disease can have many complications in their body, and it is common for patient to have proteinuria, which means the level of protein in patient’s urine is higher than normal.

For patients with simple kidney cyst, their condition is much better than other patients. And some patients with kidney cyst may have this curiosity: can a kidney cyst cause high protein in their urine?

Why patient with kidney disease have proteinuria?

Proteinuria can be caused by many factors, like too much protein intake, strenuous exercise, burn, etc. But for patient with kidney disease, their proteinuria is mostly to be caused by kidney damage.

In glomerular mesangial area, there is glomerular filtration membrane, which has the function of keeping the nutrients in blood and filtrating out the metabolic wastes. But when glomerular filtration membrane is damaged by the inflammatory reaction in it, its permeability will be increased, and macromolecular substances like protein will be able to leak out through urine.

Can a kidney cyst cause high protein in urine?

For patient with one kidney cyst, because kidney has strong metabolic ability, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health, so it does not cause obvious damage to patient’s overall health.

But if patient’s kidney cyst is too big, it will oppress its surrounding tissues, which will damage its surrounding nephrons. At this point, the damage will also increase the permeability of glomerular filtration membrane in the surrounding nephrons, and when blood flowing through these nephrons, protein can also leak out in this process, which can lead to proteinuria.

Thereby, one kidney cyst may not cause severe damage to patient’s body health, but it still can cause patient to have high protein in urine if it is too big.
