Can Kidney Stones Cause Protein Leakage?
can kidney stones cause protein leakage?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the protein has a large molecular size so that when blood is filtered in the kidney glomerolus during the formation of urine, this protein will be filtered and remain in the blood (will not come out into the urine). However, several conditions can cause protein to penetrate this filter. Some conditions that can cause protein to pass into urine (or called proteinuria) include:
excessive cold exposure
drug side effects
high blood pressure
pyelonephritis or kidney infection
and much more
It's true what you say is that kidney stones (and also other things that cause obstruction of the urinary tract), can cause damage to the kidney parenchyma and also produce proteinuria (or what you call leaky protein). However, of course it is necessary to do further tests to ensure the presence or absence of stones in the kidney and need to be considered also other possible causes. Carry out an examination to the doctor for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
