Nephrotic Syndrome is not an independent disorder but a group of various symptoms. Proteinuria is one of the typical symptom in this kidney disease. Is 10mg/dl trace of protein in Nephrotic Syndrome normal?
Normal ranges of protein in urine and blood
The test results are graded as negative (less than 10 mg/dl), trace (10 to 20 mg per dL), 1+ (30 mg per dL), 2+ (100 mg per dL), 3+ (300 mg per dL) or 4+ (1,000 mg per dL).
Normal blood levels ranges from 3.4 to 5.4 g/dl.
Therefore, 10 mg/dl trace of protein in Nephrotic Syndrome is not serious. however, proteinuria is very likely to repeat in Nephrotic Syndrome, so you also need to take some precautions.
Protein trace may be caused by other factors such as dehydration and urinary tract infection unrelated to kidney disease. Consult your doctor to exclude other potential causes of proteinuria and he or she will give you proper treatment.
Treatment for proteinuria
Usually, Nephrotic Syndrome patients are given medicines including hypertensive drugs (ACEIs and ARBs), or immunosuppressant agents. These medicines are helpful if Nephrotic Syndrome patients have good responses to these medicines. Once they reduce medicines, Nephrotic Syndrome patients are likely to see protein leakage again.
How to prevent proteinuria in Nephrotic Syndrome?
When glomeruli are damaged, protein leaks out, resulting in proteinuria. Over-the-counter medicines can just control but cannot get rid of proteinuria from the root. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, they should take natural treatments that can repair the damaged renal tissues. Therefore, I recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which can improve blood circulation, providing the kidneys with enough oxygen and blood volume. Therefore, the kidneys can repair damaged glomeruli, thus reducing proteins leakage.
