4 Things You Should Do with Urine Protein
There are 4 things you should do with urine protein, which can help keep uremia far away.

Proteinuria is a common symptom of kidney disease. When it increases, it may mean renal disease gets worse. Therefore, no matter doctors or patients pay special attention to proteinuria.

Urinary protein is an independent factor in the progression of kidney disease throughout the whole process. When the renal tubule is damaged, it can not reabsorb protein adequately, leading to protein leakage, which can speed up renal function decline, or even lead to renal failure, affecting the prognosis of the disease.

Therefore, renal patients often try all means to make proteinuria turn negative. But that is often not the case.

What's going on? Check to see if you're doing all four things right:

1. To have a clear diagnosis of the disease

The pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease is complex and the types of pathology are various, so the treatment regimens vary from person to person. In the case of urinary protein, when a small amount of protein is present and lasts for a long time, the core of treatment is to protect glomerular filtration function. If the condition of urinary protein is severe at first but lasts for a short time, such as Membranous Nephropathy, the use of hormones and diet may be more appropriate.

If you take steroids as soon as you have proteinuria, it may not suit the case and even speed up the progression of renal failure. Diagnosis of the disease, generally can be judged by indicators. In severe cases, renal biopsy can be used.

2. Using medicine scientifically

There are three main drugs for the treatment of urinary protein.

-ACEI or ARBs: they can reduce blood pressure and lower proteinuria as well as protecting renal function.

-Steroids: they have anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects, such as prednisone, prednisone, methylprednisolone, etc.

-Immunosuppressive agents: potent immunosuppression, mainly for patients with hormone resistance and severe disease, include cyclosporin, tacrolimus, cyclophosphamide, etc.;

3. To seize the best opportunity for treatment, and pay attention to the review

It is not difficult to control when proteinuria is under 3.5g/24h, but you need to seize every treatment opportunity. But urinary protein gets relapse easily, so you should have regular review.

Generally you need to have urine protein checked every 3 months. When your disease gets stable, do it at least half a year. Please seek medical advice if there is any abnormality.

4. Effective methods for lowering protein: salt restriction and low protein diet

Knowing how to use drugs is not enough, you should also pay attention to diet. For example, eating too salty can affect the efficacy of blood pressure medications, blood pressure instability and fluctuations in urinary protein. The same is true of low-protein diets.

In general, the daily salt intake of kidney patients is limited to 5g, while the low-protein diet is undoubtedly the focus of the diet of kidney patients. Low-protein food such as wheat starch, vermicelli, yam, lotus root and sweet potato can be selected.
