Dialysis is an effective way for patients to control their condition when their kidney function is damaged severely. Proteinuria is a common problem in patients with CKD, which can aggravate patient’s kidney damage obviously if it has not been well controlled. Well then, can dialysis control patient’s proteinuria?
In fact, proteinuria means patients have excess protein in their urine, and it is more obvious in patients with nephrotic syndrome. When patients have massive proteinuria, that can cause patients to have foamy urine, and it is also a major cause of edema.
Why patients have proteinuria?
Glomerulus is in charge of kidney’s filtration function, which is mainly completed by glomerular filtration membrane, because it can filtrate out the metabolic wastes and keep the useful substances in our body.
Kidney disease can damage patient’s glomerular filtration membrane, which will increase its permeability. As a result, useful substances in blood will leak in urine through this membrane, and leaked protein will cause patients to have proteinuria.
Because protein is a big molecule, so it can aggravate patient’s kidney damage in the process of leaking out, which will aggravate patient’s kidney damage obviously.
Will dialysis be able to control proteinuria?
Dialysis is a kidney replacement therapy, which can remove out the accumulated metabolic wastes and correct the metabolic disorders in patient’s body. However, it can not treat patient’s kidney disease and improve patient’s kidney function, so it can not help reduce the leaked protein from patient’s kidney.
However, massive proteinuria often causes patients to have severe edema, and when patient’s edema is too severe, like pulmonary edema and stomach edema, dialysis will be an important method to remove the excess fluid in patient’s body.
Kidney disease is very dangerous, and patients should take measures actively to improve their condition. If you need any help, you can contact our online experts. We will do what we can to help you.
