What does protein leak from the kidney mean? I over heard my das telling my mom he's got protein leak from his kidney.
Urine Protein Leak: He is spilling protein (p) in his urine and that needs to be quantified with a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein. Blood work will need to be taken to see if he has p due to diabetes, or some glomerular disease of the kidney. If the blood work does not show a cause, and he has more than 500 mg of p/day, he will need a kidney biopsy for a diagnosis, prognosis and a treatment plan. ...Read more

Therefore avoid beets if your lupus nephritis caused chronic kidney disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Always?: Not sure what is meant by always. In general those individuals with kidney failure due to sle can receive transplant. However, if the disease is fresh and active, it may be prudent to wait a while. The immunosuppression used to prevent rejection is often able to control any lupus activity. Some others may have lupus complications such as heart disease and clotting that needs special attention. ...Read more

While most kidney doctors have come to think in terms of estimated kidney function based on routine blood testing and then subsequently applying a calculation based on the blood tests to determine function, in this case that would be a good sign. ...Read more

A ratio greater than 0.1 could indicate higher than normal spilling of protein in the urine ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
