What are the reasons for proteinuria after kidney transplant?
Proteinuria is from the native kidneys or from the allograft. If the patients have proteinuria before kidney transplant, the proteinuria will decline promptly after transplant. The follow study results can help you find out the causes of proteinuria.
First, in patients with well functioning grafts, proteinuria>3000mg/d 3 week posttransplant cannot be caused by the native kidneys even if the patient had nephrotic-range proteinuria pretransplant. Then, proteinuria greater than 1500mg/d 1 year postransplant and/or an increase in proteinuria from 3 weeks to 1 year>500mg/d is due to allograft pathology.
Where is effective treatment for proteinuria after kidney transplant?
Proteinuria is associated with failure of graft. Therefore, it is important for the patients to manage it immediately and effectively.
