It indicates poor prognosis in most cases when proteinuria is more than 3g/day.


    Generally speaking, there is no obvious edema in early stages while few patients suffer from slight edema when serum protein declines. In fact, it appears to Diabetic Nephropathy when proteinuria content exceeds 3g/24hour. Significant systemic edema happens to patients with acute Diabetic Nephropathy only.
