Electro Homeopathic Treatment of Albuminuria: Albumin is the most abundant plasma protein serving multiple functions as a carrier of metabolites, hormones, vitamins, and drugs, as an acid/base buffer, as antioxidant and by supporting the oncotic pressure and volume of the blood. The presence of albumin in urine is considered to be the result of the balance between glomerular filtration and tubular reabsorption. Albuminuria has been accepted as an independent risk factor and a marker for renal as well as cardiovascular disease, and during the past decade, evidence has suggested that albumin itself may cause progression of renal disease.
Albuminuria is a sign of kidney disease and means that you have too much albumin in your urine. Albumin is a protein found in the blood. A healthy kidney doesn’t let albumin pass from the blood into the urine. A damaged kidney lets some albumin pass into the urine. The less albumin in your urine, the better. Sometimes albuminuria is also called proteinuria.
What is Glomerular filtration?
Glomerular filtration is the first step in making urine. It is the process that your kidneys use to filter excess fluid and waste products out of the blood into the urine collecting tubules of the kidney, so they may be eliminated from your body.
The detection of proteins excreted in the urine has been extensively used in the assessment of renal diseases. Proteinuria identifies patients with renal damage and those at risk for worsening renal disease and increased cardiovascular morbidity. An individual with proteinuria in the setting of a normal glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is at high risk of progressive loss of renal function.
How Glomerular filtration performs?
The first step in making urine is to separate the liquid part of your blood (plasma), which contains all the dissolved solutes, from your blood cells. Each nephron in your kidneys has a microscopic filter, called a glomerulus that is constantly filtering your blood.
Blood that is about to be filtered enters a glomerulus, which is a tuft of blood capillaries (the smallest of blood vessels). The glomerulus is nestled inside a cup-like sac located at the end of each nephron, called a glomerular capsule. Glomerular capillaries have small pores in their walls, just like a very fine mesh sieve. Most capillary beds are sandwiched between arterioles and venules (the small vessels delivering blood to and collecting blood from capillary beds), and the hydrostatic pressure drops as blood travels through the capillary bed into the venules and veins.The glomerulus, on the other hand, is sandwiched between two arterioles – afferent arterioles deliver blood to the glomerulus, while efferent arterioles carry it away. Constriction of efferent arterioles as blood exits the glomerulus provides resistance to blood flow, preventing a pressure drop, which could not be achieved if blood were to flow into venules, which do not really constrict. The two arterioles change in size to increase or decrease blood pressure in the glomerulus. In addition, efferent arterioles are smaller in diameter than afferent arterioles. As a result, pressurized blood enters the glomerulus through a relatively wide tube, but is forced to exit through a narrower tube. Together, these unique features plus the fact that your heart is supplying your kidneys with over a liter of blood per minute (around 20% of its output) maintain a high glomerular capillary pressure and the filtration function of the kidney, regardless of fluctuations in blood flow. For example, the sympathetic nervous system can stimulate the efferent arteriole to constrict during exercise when blood flow to the kidney is reduced.
The glomerular filtration rate
The rate at which kidneys filter blood is called the glomerular filtration rate. The main driving force for the filtering process, or outward pressure is the blood pressure as it enters the glomerulus.
Consider the following:
Creatinine is a waste product of creatine metabolism. It is produced in muscle when creatine is metabolized to generate energy. Creatinine is not reabsorbed or secreted, but is exclusively filtered through the kidneys, so its rate of excretion from your bloodstream is directly related to how efficiently your kidneys are filtering. By measuring the amount of creatinine in a sample of your blood, and combining this with other information such as your age, ethnicity, gender, height and weight, your doctor is able to estimate your glomerular filtration rate (GFR), which can give them a good idea of how well your kidneys are working.
