Proteinuria is the first symptom of diabetic nephropathy. Normal adult 24 hours urine protein total less than 150mg, adolescents can be slightly higher but not more than 300mg / 24h, when the total amount of urine protein over 300mg / 24h was detected, it is called proteinuria. Urine protein is not only related to the degree of renal damage, but also consider the diabetic nephropathy and other chronic kidney disease in patients with disease progression of one of the main indicators. Normal urine contains a very small amount of protein, routine examination of urine protein was negative. However, if the renal lesions caused by changes in glomerular function, resulting in glomerular filtration membrane permeability increased, the glomerular filtrate can increase the protein, beyond the renal tubular reabsorption capacity, the emergence of albumin-based protein Pee.
When the persistence of proteinuria, the glomerular filtration rate began to decline. With the development of the disease, the amount of urine protein gradually increased, the amount of urine protein and kidney disease consistent with the severity. When the glomerular filtration rate was significantly lower than normal, a large number of proteinuria, the rapid development of renal failure. Therefore, once the diabetic patients found that proteinuria should immediately cause enough attention to take early treatment measures to prevent the persistent progress of kidney disease. Such as 24 hours less than 3 grams of urine protein, urine protein was no significant increase in renal failure progress slowed down. In the basic principles of treatment there are also different, the patient should also consult more, think more, to achieve their own therapeutic purposes.
