Microalbuminuria is defined as leakage of minor or moderate albumin in urine than normal. It’s the small or initial form of Albuminuria and thus less severe than Albuminuria as well. This problem indicates that your kidneys are not working well. It may also be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
In microalbuminuria, generally, the urinary albumin excretion ranges between 30 to 300 milligrams of albumin per day. Sometimes, it may also be seen as about 20-200 micrograms per minute. Urinary albumin value less than the mentioned value is not considered microalbuminuria.
Albumin is a type of protein mainly present in your bloodstream. It doesn’t let the fluid leak into tissues and holds them in the bloodstream. Kidneys manage the level of albumin in blood in which they keep the required albumin in blood while excreting the excess or unnecessary protein through urine. So, microalbuminuria is often seen as a primary sign of kidney problems.
In general, Microalbuminuria causes no symptoms. But it can be the earliest way to find a kidney problem. If you are detected with microalbuminuria, it means there is slight or minor damage in your kidneys, causing a small amount of protein to leak into urine, which is slightly higher than the normal protein level in urine.
In microalbuminuria, the symptoms only get apparent if your kidney problem worsens. At this health phase, one may notice foamy urine and swelling in the body.
How microalbuminuria occurs?
Microalbuminuria is primarily a sign of kidney damage. However, it may also take place for a temporary period, which is not problematic. Various factors may cause damage to kidneys; those are:
- hypertension or high blood pressure
- pre-eclampsia in pregnancy
- heart problems
- other diseases affecting glomeruli, kidney’s filtering unit
Microalbuminuria occurs when there is nominal damage in your kidneys that won’t be visible easily. But it affects kidney functionality and causes a small protein to leak into urine. So, any factor (be it internal or external) can be kept in the list of causative factors for microalbuminuria.
Diagnosis of Microalbuminuria
Microalbuminuria diagnosis requires the conduction of some medical tests.
Mainly, the standard urine test is conducted to check the high albumin level in the urine. With some urine sample analysis, your physician can notice high levels of albumin in the urine.
Apart from that, physicians mainly suggest albumin to creatinine ratio. With some more tests, your doctor can address microalbuminuria and also the cause behind it.
Taking your test reports into consideration, your doctor prepares the best treatment accordingly.
The best cure for Microalbuminuria
Microalbuminuria can be cured by fixing its underlying causes. In such a condition, Ayurveda can prove a better cure. This ancient healing methodology works on the core of the disease instead of its noticeable complications. This natural healing science improves the core of the body and corrects if there is an imbalance in your body, especially in Doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) or any other body energies.
In microalbuminuria treatment, Ayurveda aims to revive kidneys’ health so that kidneys can do their functions naturally. Once the kidneys get healthy, they begin to work well, and thus the albumin urine level gets normalized naturally. Consequently, an albuminuria patient gets rid of this problem naturally for longer. Ayurvedic microalbuminuria treatment uses herbal formulations, ancient cures, diet changes, and some lifestyle interventions; it offers a permanent cure with no after-use side effects.
On the other hand, if you choose conventional treatment ways for microalbuminuria cure, it offers a short-term, or you can say temporary cure. Conventional treatment helps only manage a problem as it works on complications instead of deep causes of the disease. So, Allopathic treatment provides temporary relief, and prolonged use of this treatment may cause many side-effects to take place in your body.
So, choosing the best microalbuminuria treatment in Ayurveda is the only natural way to get rid of this problem naturally.
