    Does Proteinuria Always Indicate Renal DiseaseKidney has the function of regulating the balances of fluid, electrolytes and acid-base in our body, so it is a significant organ for our internal body balance. As a result, when patient’s kidney is damaged by their disease, that can cause patients to have many health problems.

    A common and dangerous problem in patients with kidney disease is proteinuria, which means there is excess protein leaking in patient’s urine. Besides, proteinuria is more likely to appear in nephrotic syndrome, which can bring dangerous effect if it has not been well controlled.

    Why proteinuria is dangerous in patients with kidney disease?

    Protein is an important nutrient, and it should be kept in our body. For patients with kidney disease, when the permeability of glomerular filtration membrane is damaged by inflammatory reaction, protein will be able to leak in patient’s urine, which cause patients to have proteinuria.

    Protein is a big molecule, and it can aggravate the damage in glomerular filtration membrane in the process of leaking out, which can increase its permeability obviously. As a result, patient’s kidney damage will also be aggravated in this process, and that is why proteinuria is a dangerous complication.

    Does proteinuria always indicate kidney disease?

    Proteinuria is so dangerous for patients with kidney disease, which may cause patients to worry a lot about their condition if they find they have proteinuria.

    In fact, proteinuria does not always indicate kidney disease, because many other factors can also cause people to have this problem. Proteinuria means excess protein leaking in patient’s urine, and if people take lots of foods that contain abundant protein, that will cause patients to have excess protein in patient’s urine. Besides, strenuous exercise, fever, nervousness and cold environment, etc, can also cause patients to have proteinuria.

    Thereby, if people or even patients with kidney disease find they have proteinuria, that does not surely mean it is caused by proteinuria. But if patient’s proteinuria is caused by their kidney damage, that is really dangerous.
