Urine Protein Can Not Be Controlled Well with Medications: What to DoMany kidney patients are troubled by proteinuria. Researches show that proteinuria has become a risk factor that causes uremia. Therefore, besides medical treatment, kidney patients should attach importance to the factors that can help decrease urine protein.

-Low salt diet

If your urine protein can not be lowered with medicines, you should consider whether you follow a low salt diet or not.

Low salt diet requires kidney patients consume 3g salt per day, which is the half of healthy people. How do you know whether your salt restriction is qualified or not? The main content of salt is sodium. The more salt you take, the more sodium will be passed out of body. You can check your 24h urine sodium level. Its normal range is 130-260 mmol/24h. For kidney patients, their sodium level may be lower than it. If yours is higher than the normal range, it means you take too much salt and it is better for you to lower it.

-Keep blood pressure stable

I still remembered a Hypertensive Nephropathy patient, who has massive proteinuria. And he has been with high blood pressure for about 8 years. But he did not pay attention to the blood pressure and simply thought that it was due to his kidney problem that caused his proteinuria. When I told him it was high blood pressure that was closely associated with his condition, he realized the importance of blood pressure management. Now his condition becomes well and keeps on regular check-ups. His blood pressure and 24h urine protein are kept stable. Because kidney disease is closely related with high blood pressure. When you get discharged from hospital, you should measure your blood pressure on time and tell your doctor the results, which helps your recover. For kidney patients, blood pressure should be kept under 140/90 mmHg, and the ideal pressure is under 130/80 mmHg.

-Prevent catching a cold

Cold is the most common cause of kidney disease relapse. Every relapse can worsen proteinuria. In the daily, you can take some preventative measures, for example, to do exercises and to have a good rest, to reduce the chance of catching a cold, especially when the climate changes.

-Medicine

ACEI and ARBs are anti-hypertensives, but they can also reduce urine protein. As to the steroids, they are helpful, but they can not be used for long-term, because they have a lot of side effects. Besides, you can try Chinese medicine. More than 95% of kidney patients in our hospital get rid of proteinuria completely, even if it is refractory proteinuria.

When proteinuria can not be controlled very well with medicines, you can take the above factors into consideration. For more information on kidney disease treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
