Urine protein is a key indicator that affects the prognosis of kidney disease. Relatively speaking, the loss of a large amount of protein mainly affects the early stage of nephropathy and is one of the factors that accelerate renal failure. Therefore, controlling urinary protein is a top priority in preventing renal failure.
What is the essence of “blocking” urine protein?
There are many factors that affect the stability of urinary protein, the most important is the pathological type, such as membranous nephropathy, minimally diseased nephropathy, IgA nephropathy, etc. There are differences in the occurrence of urinary protein, and how much urinary protein is lost. The causes of urine protein are basically the same for different pathological types, mainly due to glomerular damage and basement membrane damage, leading to the leakage of large molecular proteins.
Therefore, the basic treatment concept for urinary protein is similar, that is, to repair kidney tissues such as less damaged glomeruli and “block” the protein that is leaking continuously. At the same time protect the remaining kidney tissue and stabilize the overall kidney function.
After a large amount of proteinuria occurs in some kidney friends, the difficulty is not that they can’t drop it down, but they can’t keep it at a low level. It is always repeated, high and low, which is more harmful to kidney function.
How to keep urine protein stable for a long time? Pay more attention to these three aspects may have different effects!
- Pay attention to preventing infection
After any infection occurs, it will cause repeated inflammation of the kidneys, and the inflammation attacks the kidney tissues, which in turn aggravates proteinuria. Therefore, kidney friends should prevent the occurrence of various infections, including urinary infections such as kidney stones, oral infections such as periodontitis, and respiratory tract infections.
On the one hand, preventing infection is to improve immunity, but also helps fight infection. On the other hand, timely control of basic diseases, such as periodontitis, many people have bleeding gums, etc., should attach great importance to the occurrence of inflammation and so on.
- Low-salt diet to balance blood pressure
In the case of urine protein, everyone knows to pay attention to low-protein diet, but there is no concept of low-salt diet. So does ingesting too much salt also cause increased urine protein?
meeting. Ingesting too much salt will on the one hand cause water and sodium retention and aggravate the edema, which is not conducive to the treatment of proteinuria. It will also increase the metabolic burden on the kidneys. On the other hand, high-salt diets can cause high blood pressure. Increased blood pressure causes abnormal renal blood flow, exacerbates renal ischemia and hypoxia, thereby aggravating renal function, causing the condition to deteriorate, and urinary protein will also increase significantly.
- Control weight
Obesity or overweight will cause increased burden on the kidneys, increase metabolic indicators such as high blood pressure, blood lipids, blood sugar, and thus affect urine protein. Excessive weight will affect the dietary intake, drug efficacy and other aspects. Thereby causing instability in the condition. Obesity directly increases the permeability of the glomeruli, which in turn aggravates urine protein. This must be taken seriously.
