Why Do We Have So Many Protein In Urine with Nephrotic Syndrome

protein in urine and Nephrotic SyndromeExcess protein in urine is one of the top concerns for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. Well, why do we have so many protein in urine with Nephrotic Syndrome?

What causes protein in urine in Nephrotic Syndrome?

Protein in urine actually is called proteinuria and is caused due to damage of kidney structure. Normally, kidneys help to preserve protein in body with the help of glomerulus and renal tubule. Glomerulus works by performing the following two functions:

-Mechanical barrier

This barrier only allows substances with molecular weight to pass through.

-Charge barrier

This barrier only allows substance with negative charge to pass through.

Under the effects of these two barriers, only a small number of protein pass through glomeruli and finally arrive at renal tubule which is of reabsorption function, so while protein flow through renal tubule, most of them are reabsorbed back to the body again. In this way, finally only less 150mg of protein are lost in urine in a day. Such a mount of protein can not be detected with routine urine test. That is why we always say there is no protein in urine. However, when kidney structure is damaged, lots of protein will leak into urine, leading to proteinuria.

How to reduce protein in urine with Nephrotic Syndrome?

Many oral medicines can be used to deal with proteinuria. They are helpful, but can not solve protein fundamentally, as they can not repair injured kidney. With Nephrotic Syndrome, if we want to reduce protein in urine and stop relapse of proteinuria permanently, we need to rebuild injured kidney structure, so as to help kidneys work better again to stop leaking protein in urine. Only in this way, we can get permanent and fundamental recovery.

Here Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is always used to help deal with proteinuria. It is a herb-based treatment and cause no side effects during the whole treatment course. Lastly, proteinuria is just a symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome and when kidney structure is rebuild and kidney function is increased, not only protein in urine can be reduced, many other symptoms also can be eliminated successfully.
