Is It Serious with Protein 3+ in Urine for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Is It Serious with Protein 3+ in Urine for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsSevere proteinuria is the main clinical manifestation of patients with Nephrotic Syndrome. Is it serious with protein 3+ in urine for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

Proteinuria causes many other symptoms without effective treatment.

Protein 3+ means there is about 2-4 g/L protein in urine. When those protein leaks out of the body, there is less protein in plasma, leading to hypoproteinemia. Hypoproteinemia declines plasma colloid osmotic pressure and then fluid comes into the tissue space, causing edema. Besides, your liver makes lipoprotein to supplement the lost protein, which may be the cause of hyperlipemia. These symptoms may worsen your state of illness. Therefore, proteinuria should be brought under control as early as possible.

How to reduce protein leakage for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?


Steroids such as prednisone are often used to suppress kidney inflammation and decrease permeability of capillaries so as to reduce protein leakage, but this kind of medicine has many side effects, such as weight gain, diabetes, bone disease, etc.


This kind of medicine can reduce blood pressure in glomeruli and affect the permeability of basement membrane of glomeruli so as to reduce proteinuria. But you have to eat a lot of medicine to achieve a good curative effect.

Though the above two kinds of medicine can make proteinuria in remission, they can not repair the damaged kidneys. That is why your Nephrotic Syndrome relapses frequently.

-Traditional Chinese Medicine

In TCM, there are many therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction. They can cleanse the blood and remove stasis so as to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. They can also eliminate kidney inflammation and stop kidney fibrosis. When the basement membrane is repaired, protein leakage stops.

Protein 3+ is very serious for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. Therefore, early treatment is needed to control it. For more information, please contact online doctor.
