How to Reduce Protein in Urine Naturally for Person with CKD

How to reduce protein in urine (proteinuria) for person with CKD? Protein in urine is a sign for chronic kidney disease (CKD), which can result from Diabetes, high blood pressure, and diseases that cause inflammation in the kidneys. Proteinuria and kidney damage can affect each other.

As blood passes through healthy kidneys, they filter out the waste products and leave in the things the body needs, like albumin and other proteins. Most proteins are too big to pass through the kidneys' filters into the urine. However, protein in urine can appear when the filters of the kidney, called glomeruli, are damaged. CKD can be divided into five stages according to the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) level. From stage 1 to stage 5 CKD, the amounts of protein in urine increases, because the kidney function declines.

Once clinical proteinuria appears (urine protein >0.5g/24h), the function of glomeruli will decline irreversibly. The average duration of protein in urine is 17 years. The average life expectancy after proteinuria appears is about 10 years, 25% patients will develop ESRD within 6 years, 50% within 10 years and 75% within 15 years. Then how to reduce protein in urine for CKD patients?

In the clinical, if a CKD patient has Diabetes and high blood pressure, ACEI or ARBs will be used to reduce proteinuria, control blood pressure and protect kidney function. Many CKD patients with proteinuria but without high blood pressure may also benefit from ACEI or ARBs. Anyway, these medicines can not treat CKD from the root, also after long term use of these medicines, some side effects may occur. Is there any treatment option can reduce protein in urine naturally for person with CKD?

Take the safety and efficiency into account, Chinese herbal medicines seem to be the best treatment option for CKD patients. The goal of Chinese herbal medicines is to repair kidney damage and enhance kidney function through expanding blood vessels, promoting blood circulation, removing blood vessels and providing nutrition for damaged kidneys. All the medicines come from nature, so the safety can be guaranteed. If the kidney function can be enhanced, kidneys will prevent proteins leaking into urine by themselves, protein in urine will disappear naturally. Which stage of CKD are you in and how much is the 24-hour urinary protein quantity?
