Is There Anything I Can Take to Remove Protein from Kidney with Lupus

Is There Anything I Can Take to Remove Protein from Kidney with LupusProtein leaks from kidney into urine that usually indicates Lupus has attacked the kidney. As introduced by nephrologists, protein in urine is one factor that can accelerate the progression of Lupus Nephritis. Is there anything patients can take to remove protein from kidney?

According to the pathogenetic mechanism of proteinuria for Lupus patients, we would like to introduce several methods to control this problem.

Food Therapy

Correct meal plan can support the medical therapy to control various diseases including proteinuria. To manage protein leakage, the basic dietary requirements are:

- Adopt different standards of protein diet, according to patients' illness condition: Adults with chronic renal insufficiency are suggested to take in 0.8~1.0 g/kg body weight of high-quality protein. Patients with severe kidney damage and no kidney damage should consume 1.5~2.0g/kg of protein. However, if lupus patients' blood urea level is higher than the normal, they should follow low-protein diet.

- Supplement calcium, magnesium and Zinc: If Lupus patients' protein in urine is more than 3.5g/24h, calcium, magnesium and Zinc are often lost along with protein leakage. Thereby, these patients should eat more vegetables, fruits and foods rich in calcium, magnesium, or Zinc.

Western Medicine

For lupus patients, their protein leakage is usually due to inflammatory reactions within kidneys, so doctors may prescribe steroids or immunosuppressants to inhibit inflammatory reactions and remove protein from urine. If proteinuria is accompanied by high blood pressure, ACEI and ARBs may also be taken to manage these two problems. However, these medicines especially steroids have many side effects, so a lot of patients hope to find some alternative drugs.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Compared with western medicine, herbal medicine focuses on repairing damaged glomerular basement membrane, removing immune complexes depositing in the kidneys and regulating immune system. Then, as the underlying cause is controlled, protein leakage will disappear.
