Proteinuria means the kidneys are not working properly to hold the protein in the blood, and resultant you got protein dripped along with the urine. It is your kidney's job to filter the blood, keep the important substance, and eliminate waste that comes because of various chemical reactions, along with the urine. Normally protein and other vital nutrients to stay in the blood, but any damage to the filters of the kidneys allow the large molecules to skip through them. This is the reason, why patients notice foam or bubbles in the urine when having proteinuria. When the kidneys function become impaired, their filters enlarge to protect the nutrients from slipping along with the urine. The protein associated with this condition is called albumin, and so also called albuminuria. For those with this condition should adopt Ayurvedic Proteinuria Treatment and diet plan to treat the condition naturally.

What is the role of albumin in the body?

The blood contains various types of protein and out of these, albumin is the most prevalent protein found. The following are the functions of the albumin:
  • Albumin plays an important role in maintaining fluid level
  • It acts as a transport vessel that moves the nutrients and hormones throughout the cells and tissues
  • The loss of albumin also causes swelling in the body
  • The excess levels of albumin can also cause dehydration

What are the possible signs that tell you to have proteinuria?

In the initial stages, proteinuria cannot be diagnosed easily as there are no early signs that show you have the condition. But as you progress to the late stages even and take Ayurvedic Proteinuria Treatment and diet plan, the condition can be slowed down from progressing to chronic kidney disease and eventually to kidney failure. Signs that appear with proteinuria:
  • Foamy or bubbly urine
  • Swelling because of fluid retention

Sometimes, the signs only cannot be used as a reference to diagnose; you are losing protein along with the urine. A test is also conducted by the healthcare provider to reveal whether you have the condition and the actual cause of kidney damage. A UACR test is conducted usually for the same that checks the urine albumin ratio with respect to creatinine. A UACR of more than 30 mg/g indicates proteinuria.

Ayurvedic Proteinuria Treatment and diet plan

Ayurvedic Proteinuria Treatment, when taken along with lifestyle modifications and diet plan, can help to overcome the condition naturally.  For treating proteinuria, it is necessary to be cautious of the food you consume as during this condition the filters of the kidneys become large to hold nutrients in the blood. Moreover, if you have high blood pressure and diabetes, then the likelihood of having proteinuria is more in you. Thus, it is important to look after your eating habits to manage proteinuria naturally. Excess production of protein is also related to proteinuria, and so you should properly follow Ayurvedic Proteinuria Treatment and diet plan.
  • Prepare foods with less salt and sodium
To control blood pressure, it is important to choose fruits and vegetables low in sodium. Excess sodium consumption raises the blood pressure and so does the risk of having kidney disease. A nephrologist never suggests taking sodium in excess than 2300 mg each day. To make sure your dietary intake of sodium is less, try to cook food at home instead of buying canned or processed foods and use less salt in the cooking.
  • Eat the right types of protein in the right quantity
The leftovers of the food we eat are removed by the kidneys while the important nutrients are bound to stay in the blood. When your kidneys are not healthy, they can even eliminate large molecules of protein through them, which makes your urine foamy. Kidneys have to work extra hard to spill protein when they are damaged, and so prefer including a small portion of the protein in your diet. Besides, ask your healthcare provider about the best source of protein such as animal or plant sources of food. Ayurvedic Proteinuria Treatment and diet plan help to relive the comorbidities arising because of protein leak. The sources of animal protein:
  • Chicken
  • Fish
  • Meat
  • Eggs
The sources of plant protein
  • Nuts
  • Grains
  • Wheat
  • Beans
  • Include less phosphorus in your diet
When the kidneys are not properly working, they cannot eliminate phosphorus easily. As a result, phosphorus starts building up in the blood which causes hyperphosphatemia. The pile-up of the phosphorus in the blood can pull out calcium and vitamin D from the bones and also make them weak, cause dry and itchy skin, and joint pain. Food low in potassium:
  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Corn cereals
  • Bread
  • Pasta
  • High in potassium
  • Dairy products
  • Meat
  • Poultry
  • Fish
  • Dark-colored sodas
  • Ice canned teas
