The amount of urinary protein does not explain the severity of nephritis, but can not be used as a criterion to judge the quality of renal function, must be combined with clinical symptoms and other renal function tests to conduct a comprehensive analysis to make the right judgments.
Urinary protein is an important basis for the diagnosis of nephritis, nephritis is also one of the important indicators to assess the effect of treatment. However, why urinary protein can not be used as a criterion for the severity of nephritis?
1, the end stage of kidney disease, glomerular sclerosis, loss of functional nephron, glomerular filtration rate decreased, proteinuria instead reduced.
2, some types of nephritis clinically only hematuria as the main performance without proteinuria.
3, the plasma protein concentration decreased significantly, 24-hour urine protein can be reduced quantitative. Therefore, a simple measure of urinary protein can not be a small amount to measure the severity of nephritis, and must make a comprehensive clinical evaluation.
4, the severity of proteinuria and renal pathological changes were not completely consistent, such as minimal change disease, clinical and pathological proteinuria was normal under light microscope, immunofluorescence negative, only under the electron microscope showed the glomerular epithelial cell foot process fusion, the glucocorticoid response is good, good prognosis.
