What Should I Do to Lessen the Protein Leakage in My Urine with IgA Nephropathy

2013-11-29 09:09

What Should I Do to Lessen the Protein Leakage in My Urine with IgA NephropathyProtein leakage in urine is also known as proteinuria. For patients with IgA Nephropathy, proteinuria is a common symptom. Controlling protein leakage plays an important role in slowing down progression to the end stage renal disease and get rid of dialysis and kidney transplant. Therefore, what should we do to lessen the protein leakage?

What causes protein leakage?

IgA is a kind of immune complex. If they deposit in glomerular messangial area, they will lead to inflammatory reaction. As a result, kidney tissues will be gradually damaged. As we all know, one of the functions of kidney is to retain water and beneficial substances, such as sodium, potassium, protein etc. Once kidneys are damaged, they can not hold protein in the blood and leak into the urine.

Treatment for protein leakage in urine

Generally speaking, it is recommended to take a low but high quality protein diet if you have IgA Nephropathy. 0.6-0.8g/kg per day is preferred. If you are taking dialysis, the protein intake may be increased to 1.2-1.5g/kg per day. Too much protein intake will increase the burden on kidneys and worsen kidney disease.

Besides dietary therapy, attention should also be paid to medication. Natural medicines without side effects are suggested. The fundamental treatment is to remove the IgA form the glomerular messangial area and improve kidney function. Immunotherapy can clean these immune complexes through various blood purification and improve immune system with traditional Chinese medicine. As long as the kidney function recovers, protein leakage stops.

When there is heavy proteinuria, it is not necessary for you to be over worried; If there is only little proteinuria, you should also not neglect. You had better consult your doctor to make corresponding treatment plan to treat proteinuria as early as possible. Only in this way, can you eliminate the damage to kidneys.
