Does Albuminuria Resulting From Diabetic Nephropathy Imply CKDToday a patient leaves a message on our website kidney-cares.org. He asks a question that if albuminuria as a result of diabetic nephropathy imply chronic kidney disease (CKD). In this article, you will find the answer.

In people with long term badly managed diabetes, protein loss repeatedly found in the urine is a sign of diabetic nephropathy, so indeed a chronic kidney disease. Badly managed glucose levels cause kidney damage , which leads to the proteins leaking into the urine. If the kidneys are working properly, there are no proteins in urine, no matter how high your glucose levels night be. Persistent albuminuria with no other cause like infection is enough to imply chronic kidney disease in a diabetic patient.

How to treat albuminuria in kidney disease?

1. Medications

Albuminuria can be ameliorated by angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEs) or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) even if the blood pressure is not elevated.

2. Diet management for protein in urine

Soy protein can offer numerous benefits for damaged kidneys. Animal proteins are high quality but hard on the kidneys and you may need to limit them in your diet. Foods with low amounts of protein include vegetables, the soy products tofu and tempeh. Besides, kidney disease patients also need to restrict sodium intake because a diet high in sodium increases fluid retention, which is already aggravated by malfunctioning kidneys. Preventing this condition by avoiding all high sodium foods like processed foods , canned soup, fatty and fried foods and salted fish. Also potassium or phosphorus high foods should also be limited.

3. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

Having too much protein in your urine means your kidneys’ filters-glomeruli have been damaged. Badly managed glucose level for a long time can do some damage on kidneys’ filters. Thus, the radical treatment for albuminuria is to repair damaged kidneys’ filters. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is created from TCM but used externally. The active ingredients of the medicines can permeate into kidney lesion directly, which aims at repairing damaged glomeruli. Only glomeruli basement membrane can be repaired , protein will not leak into urine. And albuminuria can be prevented.
