    Can High Protein Levels in Urine with CKD Stage 5 Be Lowered

    2014-06-11 07:08| Font Size A A A

    Can High Protein Levels in Urine with CKD Stage 5 Be LoweredFor patients with stage 5 CKD, their kidney function is damaged severely, and many health problems can appear in this stage. High protein in urine is a common problem of CKD, which is very dangerrous. Well then, can high protein in urine with stage 5 be lowered?

    Protein is an important nutrient in our body, and it should be kept in our body, but for patients with CKD, their disease can damage their kidney function gradually, which can cause patients to have excess protien leaking in their urine. In fact, high protein levels in urine is also known as proteinuria, which is a common complication of CKD.

    Why patients with stage 5 CKD have high protein levels in urine?

    There is glomerular filtration membrane in glomerulus, which is in charge of filtrating out the metabolic wastes and keeping the useful nutrients in body. For patients with stage 5 CKD, their kidney disease can cause damage in glomerular filtration membrane, which can increase its permeability. As a result, lots of substances that should be kept in body will leak out through urine, including protein, which can cause patients to have proteinuriua.

    Can high protein levels in urine be lowered?

    Thereby, to lower high protein levels in urine, it is necessary for patients to control the permeability of flomerular filtration membrane. If its permeability can be lowered, patient’s high protein levels will be lowered.

    To reach that purpose, medicines like ARB, ACEI, immunosuppressor and glucocorticoid will be needed, which can reduce the permeability of glomerular filtration membrane, and they can control the inflammation in glomeruli and reduce its damage to them. As a result, the leaked protein through kidney will be reduced, which can help lower the high protein levels in urine.
