How to Treat Protein in Urine in Horseshoe Kidney

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2012-12-20 13:33

Horseshoe kidney is a congenital disorder which develops during fetal development. Protein in urine is commonly seen in this condition. It is a significant factor in aggravating renal function. Therefore, it is very important to treat protein in urine effectively.

Kidneys are filters in body. They can separate wastes from blood and excrete them out of body. Meanwhile, they can preserve useful substances including protein in blood and return them back to body.

However, in horseshoe kidney, frequent urinary tract infections and kidney stones can impair the kidney structure. As a result, a large amount of proteins are filtered out of kidneys and end up in urine.

How to treat protein in urine in Horseshoe Kidney?

1. You should reduce the amount of protein you eat. Protein comes from many different foods such as meat, fish, bean product, etc.

2. Eliminate your urinary tract infections. Frequent urinary tract infections can prolong proteinuria because of the easy transmission of bacteria between the urinary tract and kidneys. What’s more, frequent urinary tract infections can affect the kidney infection, thus resulting in renal function decline.

3. ACE inhibitors and beta blocker are usually prescribed to people with horseshoe kidney if they have protein in urine. Using these medicines is a common way to treat proteinuria. Meanwhile, they also can increase the ability of the kidneys to filter waste products and lower high blood pressure.

4. Control kidney stones effectively. The kidneys themselves may damage kidneys directly. Additionally, they may obstruct in urinary tract system to cause hydronephrosis which may impair kidney structure.

5. Protein in urine is due to kidney impairment. If the filtering units in kidneys can be restored, the kidneys will be able to preserve protein in blood. Therefore, another treatment goal is to improve renal function and filtering ability of kidneys.
