Proteinuria In Patient With Polycystic Kidney Disease

Proteinuria In Patient With Polycystic Kidney Disease Patient with polycystic kidney disease (PKD) can have many symptoms, and proteinuria can also be seen in PKD patients.

What is proteinuria?

Proteinuria means there is protein in patient’s urine. For healthy people, there will also be a little amount of protein leaking through patient’s urine, and it is less than 150mg per day. But for patient with kidney disease, proteinuria can much more than this value, and protein in patient’s urine can be checked out by routine urine test, and it is called proteinuria.

Why patient with PKD has proteinuria?

Proteinuria is also a common symptom in patient with PKD, but the amount of protein is often less, and most patients will not have more than one gram per day.

In fact, proteinuria in patient with PKD can be caused by many factors. For example, if PKD patient take too protein in his diet, he may have proteinuria. And if patient take strenuous exercise, protein in his urine will also increase, and he will also also proteinuria. Proteinuria caused by these factors will not last long, so patient do not need to be worried.

On the other hand, proteinuria can also be caused by kidney damage, which will be a bad condition. Proteinuria caused by kidney damage is due to the increase of glomerular filtration membrane’s permeability. In normal condition, protein will be kept in patient’s blood by glomerular filtration membrane, while as patient’s membrane is damaged, protein that should be kept in blood will leak out through urine.

What effect can be caused by proteinuria?

Proteinuria should be controlled, or else the increased protein can aggravate the damage in patient’s glomeruli, which will decrease patient’s kidney function further more.

If PKD patient has large amount of proteinuria, he may have edema in his lower limbs, and he can also have foams in his urine.
