Nowadays, people’s living standards have been improved obviously, but the pressure of people is increased as well. So, the problem of human health is more and more severe. As investigations show that more and more people get kidney disease. However, most people get kidney disease without attention, because CKD has no symptoms in early stage. Having regular urine test is the best way to find chronic kidney disease at an early date and know your illness state exactly.
1. Having regular urine test is helpful for diagnosis of CKD.
The function of kidney is to filter toxins and excess fluid in blood, and keep nutrients in blood. Blood contains many substances like protein and red blood cell etc. If your kidney do a good job, these available substances are not easy to get lost. When you find blood urine or bubbly urine, it means that there maybe some problems of your kidney. Urine change is the common symptom of kidney impaired. Therefore, regular urine test can reflect the kidney condition and the degree of reduced kidney function.
2. Having regular urine test can reflect the development of kidney disease.
Urine test can measure the amount of protein and red blood cell in urine. The lost protein and red blood cell estimate that the glomeruli as tiny filters in kidney can’t do their job properly. Then the kidney is said to have reduced or impaired kidney function. The more amount of protein and red blood cell in urine, the severer decline of kidney function. Normal glomeruli can keep the nutrients such as protein and red blood cell staying in blood. If glomeruli are damaged, protein and red blood cell will filter out with toxins and excess fluid. The amount of protein and red blood cell in urine decide the degree of your damaged glomeruli. Having regular urine test and knowing exactly about the amount of protein and red blood cell in urine can help you realize your illness condition.
3. Patients with CKD should have treatments timely and actively.
CKD is a chronic progressive disease. On one hand, its progression degree depends on different kinds of kidney diseases, on the other hand, it most depends on the treatments. If you find you are suffering from CKD, you’d better have treatments timely and actively. Don’t wait until your illness develops into end stage.
Early prevention of kidney disease is helpful for you. You’d better have urine test regularly which will keep you away from CKD.
