How to Treat Proteinuria in Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic syndrome is caused by different disorders that damage the kidneys. This damage leads to the release of too much protein in the urine, which is called proteinuria medically. How to treat proteinuria in Nephropathy Syndrome has been the question most asked by patients.

Risk factors of proteinuria

The main common risk factors for proteinuria is hypertension. Here we refer to renal hypertension. Simple high blood pressure will not cause proteinuria. When high blood pressure makes kidney damage and decreased glomerular filtration rate (GFR), large amounts of protein will leak out with urine.

High blood pressure causes renal arteriole sclerosis, resulting in ischemia and anoxia of kidneys. Then the glomeruli are impaired. At the same time, hypertension leads to an elevated internal pressure in the glomeruli. When the protein passes through the glomeruli, they leak out into the urine. That’s why you will see foamy or bubbly urine, which is actually proteinuria. If left untreated, that condition may progress into renal insufficiency even end stage renal disease (ESRD).

Now you have known that the direct cause of proteinuria is the damaged glomeruli, and that it is high blood pressure that makes the glomeruli injured. Well then, we can make an conclusion that keeping high blood pressure under control and repairing damaged glomeruli are the basic treatments.

How to Treat Proteinuria in Nephrotic Syndrome

Firstly, pay attention to what you eat and drink. Foods that contain much salt and protein are absolutely bad choices. In general, as for protein intake, 0.6g-0.8g of the body weight is OK. Taking more fresh fruits and vegetables to avoid too much salt intake.

Secondly, talk with your doctor about your antihypertensive medicines. ACEIs and ARBs are the mostly prescribed drugs to lower high blood pressure. However, those medicines also cause wastes or toxins, which will in turn burden the kidneys. I strongly recommend you take traditional Chinese medicines. Those medicines can not only help you lower high blood pressure but also improve the kidney function.
