How to Reduce +2 Protein in Urine for Kid with Nephrotic Syndrome

Question: My 4 years old son is suffering and diagnosed to have Nephrotic Syndrome. Unfortunately the creatinine is within normal but still having +2 protein in his urine. What can we do now to reduce protein in urine?

How to Reduce +2 Protein in Urine for Kid with Nephrotic SyndromeAnswer: Hi, we are glad to receive your email and please do not worry, we will try every means to help your lovely son. You said his creatinine level in blood is still in the normal range. I am pleasant to hear this news as it means at least a half of your son’ kidney function are not affected yet.

Nephrotic Syndrome is a kidney problem which is marked by serious protein leakage. In normal cases, only less than 150 milligram of protein leak into urine. Under such a case, no protein can be found in urine with routine urine test, so lab test usually shows -. However, when protein contained by urine is more than 150mg, lab test will show +. ++ (+2) protein in urine usually indicates 1-2 gram of protein are contained in 1 liter of urine.

For your kid, to reduce protein in urine effectively, the following measures are usually needed:

1. A proper protein intake: You need to help your son adjust his protein intake, generally 0.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight is needed a day by him. Besides, try to ask your kid eat some high quality protein like lean meat, egg white, fish and milk.

2. Hypotensive drugs are needed if you son has high blood pressure, as persistent high blood pressure also worsen protein leakage.

3. Medical treatment for kidney damages. Oral medications like prednisone, cyclophosphamide and cellcept can be used to help your kid get remission, but to solve problem fundamentally, a systematic treatment that can repair kidney damages is needed. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is recommended to repair injured kidney intrinsic cells.

4. Healthy living habits such as regular bed time and mild physical exercises like walking.

5. Help your son to be in good mood, which helps to get Nephrotic Syndrome under control indirectly.

Hope the above information is helpful for you. If you have any other questions on kidney disease or want to get more personalized and professional treatment suggestions, please leave a message below.
