How Severe Is It For Patients With Kidney Disease To Have Protein In Urine

How Severe Is It For Patients With Kidney Disease To Have Protein In Urine Kidney is an organ that is in charge of our internal balance, and when patients have kidney disease, it can cause many obvious symptoms in patient’s body.

A major function of kidney is to produce urine, so kidney disease will cause many abnormal changes in patient’s urine, among which proteinuria is also very common.

Why patients with kidney failure have protein in urine?

There are about one million nephrons in kidney, and nephron consists of glomeruli and kidney tubules. Glomerulus has the function of filtration, which is achieved by glomerular filtration membrane.

But when patient’s glomerular filtration membrane is damaged by his kidney disease, its permeability will be increased, and nutrients that should be kept in body will be able to go through this membrane, and then leak out through urine.

And it is easy for patients to have lots of protein leaking out in this process, which will cause proteinuria.

How severe is it for patients with kidney failure to have proteinuria?

As we know, protein is an important nutrient which should be kept in body, but for patients with kidney failure, it is common for them to have protein, which means there are excess protein leaking out through patient’s urine. Proteinuria may cause no obvious symptom if the leaked protein amount is less, but when there are massive proteinuria, patients will have foams that have small size on their urine surface, and they can exist for a long time.

In fact, proteinuria should be controlled as soon as possible, because it is a problem that can aggravate patient’s kidney damage obviously.

Because protein is macromolecular substance, and it will increase the permeability of glomerular filtration membrane in the process of leaking out, which will aggravate the damage to patient’s kidney structure. And that is why there is a saying that hematuria may not be scary, but it is dangerous if renal patients have proteinuria.

But patients should not worry too much, because proteinuria is able to be controlled by appropriate treatment. In the end, if you have any problem in dealing with kidney disease, you can leave us a message, and we will do what we can to help you.
