24 hour urine and the amount of protein in 24 hour urine is one important clinical test to reflect the kidney function. FSGS, one common kidney disease, is characterized by heavy proteinuria and edema in most cases. Therefore, FSGS patients are usually tested out abnormal 24 hour urine.
An introduction of 24 hour urine
24 hour urine refers to the total amount of urine in 24 hours. Then, mix all of these urine and extract 100-200ml of urine to do test.
Normally, general populations have 1000-2000ml of urine one day, and the amount of protein in their urine is about 40-80mg/24h. If the person has abnormal 24 hour urine, it is more likely to indicate some conditions.
FSGS and abnormal 24 hour urine
It is reported that 2/3 of FSGS patients have proteinuria and edema. Different abnormalities in 24 hour urine can reveal different problems. Read on to find the answer.
1. The decline of urine output: If controlled effectively, FSGS can cause kidney damage gradually. Severely damaged kidneys can’t produce enough urine. When the amount of 24 hour urine is less than the normal value, it is more likely to indicate decline of kidney function.
2. More protein in 24 hour urine: FSGS is a kidney disorder with scarring in glomeruli. When the glomerular filtration membrane is damaged, excess protein will leak from the kidney to form proteinuria. If the amount of protein is more than 150mg/24h, we call it proteinuria, while it indicates heavy proteinuria if the amount is more than 3.5g/24h.
According to the test result, treatments that can help repair glomerular filtration membrane are needed. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy just can achieve this goal. Through degrading extracellular matrix and activating damaged kidney cells, this therapy shows a great effect on treating FSGS, thus correcting abnormal 24 hour urine.
