Three Good Ways to Lower Proteinuria
Proteinuria is finally reduced, but comes back without any reason. Do you have such a trouble? How to have a permanent control of proteinuria? Proteinuria is a common symptom of Kidney Disease. Without good control, it can speed up Kidney Failure. Then how to lower proteinuria? Here we will introduce three good ways to help you.
First of all, let’s see the three common causes of proteinuria relapse.
-Inflammation occurs repeatedly.
Inflammation in the kidney can lead to accumulation of immune complexes, which in turn can aggravate inflammation by accumulating large amounts of toxins, thus accelerating damage to kidney function and triggering kidney failure. General infection, overwork and so on are easy to cause inflammation, so kidney patients should pay attention to preventing infection, appropriate rest, and improving immunity, which can reduce inflammation and proteinuria recurrence rate.
-Complications are not well controlled.
Many complications appear in the process of kidney disease treatment. They affect each other. Among them, high blood pressure and swelling can both affect the treatment of proteinuria. Hypertension will affect the metabolism of water and sodium in the body, resulting in renal arterial hypertension and aggravation of renal ischemia and hypoxia, and then accelerate renal cell necrosis. And aggravation of renal function damage will inevitably lead to more protein leakage. Long-term control of blood pressure below 130/80 helps delay renal function and reduce proteinuria levels.
-Living habits are managed poorly.
We all know that a good low-protein diet helps maintain proteinuria stable, but some kidney patients still do not pay attention to it. Improper diet can result in more protein leakage.
In addition, irregular work and rest, work and life pressure and so on will also lead to proteinuria instability.
That is maybe why kidney patients keep on treatment to lower proteinuria, but the effect is not satisfying. Although it is kidney disease that causes proteinuria, but there are many factors that can trigger the relapse. Therefore, a comprehensive treatment is needed to stabilize proteinuria.
1. To enhance body metabolism and reduce toxin accumulation
Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is a key indicator of renal detoxification function. A decrease in GFR to 59% indicates the onset of renal insufficiency, when recovery of damaged glomeruli is difficult. Therefore, glomerular filtration of toxins is impaired. But to detoxify, you have to maintain your metabolism. In addition to protecting residual renal function and maintaining internal metabolism, you can also enhance capacity consumption and metabolism by strengthening exercise and drinking more water.
Besides, you should take part in exercises to help reduce the burden of the kidney.
2. To control your diet well and reduce the kidney burden.
Reasonable diet can help protect kidney function and reduce proteinuria level, while a bad diet can speed up kidney failure. There are two points you need to pay attention. One is to reduce foods high in salt and fat, which can reduce the workload of kidneys, and meanwhile reducing blood pressure and relieving swelling. The other one is low amount of high quality protein. High quality protein mainly includes milk, egg, meat, bean products, etc. Reasonable collocation can not only assure nutrition, but also prevent aggravating proteinuria. The daily intake of meat, egg white, milk and beans can be roughly calculated according to the ratio of 3:2:2:2.
3. To keep good living habits and healthy state of mind.
In order to maintain a stable condition, kidney patients should take control themselves strictly. All behaviors that damage the kidney should be corrected, such as staying up, being lazy, smoking, drinking, being too tired, being under too much pressure, etc.
And it is good to have healthy state of mind. Don’t keep yourself in a state of depression, anxiety and fear. This is helpful to strengthen immunity and improve disease resistance so as to keep proteinuria and kidney function more stable.
Now you know the three common causes of proteinuria relapse, and the three good ways to reduce proteinuria. If you still have any questions on proteinuria, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
