Causes of proteinuria in rheumatoid arthritis
In right condition, the immune system can protect the body against foreign harmful substances and keep us healthy. However, in rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system fails to function adequately and attacks healthy body tissues and cells by mistakes. The abnormal immune response can cause inflammation in different body parts. Besides joints, kidneys also can be involved in some cases.

When the kidneys become impaired, they fail to prevent the leakage of protein into urine. As a result, proteinuria will result in rheumatoid arthritis.
