24 Hours Protein in Urine in Nephrotic Syndrome

24 Hours Protein in Urine in Nephrotic SyndromeA 24-hour urine protein is the most common used test to assess kidney function. What is 24 hours protein in urine in Nephrotic Syndrome?

24 hours protein in urine measures the amount of protein excreted in urine over a 24-hour period. Because the renal glomeruli are imperfect, normal individuals may occasionally have trace amounts of protein in their urine (no more than 150 mg per day).

Nephrotic Syndrome is usually caused by damage to the small blood vessels in your kidneys that filter waste and excess water from your blood. This damage leads to the release of too much protein in urine. To judge whether you have Nephrotic Syndrome or not, we usually see how much protein in urine. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, 24 hours protein in urine is more than 3.5 g and serum albumin is less than 30 g/L.

If you have massive proteinuria, you should attach importance, because without timely and effective treatment, it will cause further damage to your body. Steroids and immunosuppressants are the common used drugs by Nephrotic Syndrome patients to inhibit kidney inflammation and reduce protein leakage. But they can not repair the damaged glomeruli. As long as you stop the medicine or reduce its dosage, it is likely for proteinuria to come back again. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to increase blood flow into the kidneys to improve ischemia and anoxia. It can also decompose the immune complexes deposited in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation. Besides, it can degrade extracellular matrix to cease kidney fibrosis. After a period of treatment, your kidneys regain their ability and then 24 hours protein in urine returns to normal range.

Besides 24 hours protein in urine, there are also other tests to measure kidney function, such as creatinine test, urea test, etc. For more information about Nephrotic Syndrome, please leave a message below or send emails to igacure@gmail.com.
