Three methods of checking proteinuria. They are applicable to different patients or the same patient at different times, each has its own advantages and disadvantages.
The first one is whether the routine urine have +, in +, + +,+++ express the mount of urine protein. This method is simple,the result of report is fast, is the patient randomly leave a urine examination. But this method is usually used to preliminary screen whether there is a protein in the urine rough judgment method. Because it is qualitative, it is preliminary judgement has or still does not have uric albumen. Therefore, this method is very inaccurate and can not be quantified. Sometimes the urine concentration, urine protein also showed normal + number, but after quantification is normal; sometimes a lot of proteinuria, but because it is the dilution of urine, urine will show the urine protein is needed, 24 hours urine protein will really determine how much protein in the urine. Especially in the course of treatment, the effect of treatment cannot be judged by urine routine, which will be very dull and can not adjust the therapeutic drug. Urine routine method to determine the merits of urine protein is simple and fast, suitable for preliminary screening whether the kidney is defective, the disadvantage is inaccurate.
The second method: 24 hours urine protein quantitative, leave 24 hours, all urine measurement 24 hours, urine how many protein lose, this is the most accurate method to judge urine protein, the disadvantage is that the method is more complicated and time-consuming. However, a quantitative observation is necessary after the determination of proteinuria, especially in the treatment of this disease. This method is used to determine the efficacy of the treatment and to adjust the medication. The majority of patients with chronic nephritis in our outpatient clinic received urinary protein consultation with this method.
The third method: urine protein creatinine ratio, that is to check random urine, determine how much urine protein per 1g creatinine. This method is most commonly used in diabetic nephropathy, if there is a trace of protein leakage, and should be at normal renal function only when it is meaningful. The method is simple, the result is more accurate than the urine routine, not as accurate as 24 hours urine protein.
