Is It Normal for 24h Urine Protein to Be more than 3800 mg/dL

Question: A patient suffers from membranous glomerulonephritis (confirmed by kidney biopsy) after 3 months on diuretics. Is it normal for 24h urine protein to be > 3800 mg/dL?

Is It Normal for 24h Urine Protein to Be more than 3800 mg/dLAnswer: Membranous glomerulonephritis is a common cause of Nephrotic Syndrome. From what you said, we can see that the patient’s proteinuria is more than 3800 mg/d, which indicates that he has Nephrotic Syndrome. Generally speaking, when urine protein is more than 3.5 g/d and plasma albumin is less than 30 g/L, we consider that your disease is Nephrotic Syndrome. Besides, there may be severe edema and high cholesterol level.

Protein is an important component of many structures in the body, such as antibodies and hormones. If too much protein leaks into the urine, you may suffer from malnutrition, poor immune system, etc. Therefore, you should take measures as early as possible to stop proteinuria.

-Steroids are very effective in treating proteinuria. They can inhibit kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to reduce protein leakage. But the disadvantage is that they have many side effects.

-Chinese medicine is also a good choice, but its disadvantage is that it takes effect slowly. You may need long-term treatment to achieve a better curative effect.

However, we can combine western medicine and Chinese medicine to make up the respective shortcomings. They can remove the immune complexes from blood to reduce inflammation. They can also improve blood circulation to help repair the damaged kidneys so as to stop protein leakage.

It is abnormal for 24 h urine protein to be more than 3800 mg/dL. Early treatment is needed for the patients to control the state of illness and prevent kidney failure. If you would like know more information about kidney disease, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
