Causes and Treatment of Urine Protein In Kidney PatientsUrine protein is the most troubling symptom because kidney patients need to take many steroids and their condition relapses frequently. Well, what is the cause and treatment for proteinuria in kidney patients?

1. How does urine protein occur in kidney patients?

Normally, protein in urine should not be over 0.15g. The following are three factors leading to urine protein:

Inflammation reaction

Inflammation reaction caused by immune complex deposits can damage glomerular filtration barrier and podocyte fusion. This will cause lots of protein leakage.

Increased blood pressure in glomeruli

High blood pressure and diabetes both can increase pressure in kidneys especially for glomeruli. This will force protein out of your body into urine, causing urine protein.

Damaged renal tubular

Injured renal tubular can affect resorption capacity. Although glomerular filtration function is normal, renal tubular is not working properly. This will cause protein loss.

2. What is the damage of urine protein?

Persistent protein in urine can cause:

Damaged filtering barrier

Protein is the large molecular substance. Protein leakage will damage glomerular filtering barrier and aggravate sertoli cells. In this condition, more protein will leak into urine.


Lots of protein leakage will cause low plasma albumin. Low plasma albumin will cause disorder of colloid osmotic pressure so as to result in swelling. Swelling can cause acute pulmonary edema, acute heart failure and threaten your life.

3. What is the treatment for proteinuria?

Generally speaking, when 24h urine protein is over 1g, steroids are used.

Steroids have two functions: one is prevention of inflammatory reaction and the other one is to reduce the permeability of renal cells.

Steroids are effective for eliminating proteinuria but side effects are obvious.

Aside from steroids, Chinese medicine treatments are radical for eliminating proteinuria in kidney disease. Chinese medicine treatments include Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicinal Soup, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy, Steaming Therapy, Enema Therapy and Acupuncture, etc. They can purify your blood and then repair injured kidney tissues to stop protein leakage from the root.
