Proteinuria & etiologies of CRF

In this step, Prof. Chen clarifies the proteinuria and etiologies of CRF.

To begin with, proteinuria is an unspecific marker that may indicate some diseases, including infectious, neoplastic, and systemic ones.

Besides, for etiologies of CRF, we need to know the systematic diseases. For instance, for diabetes patients, we should pay attention to their glycemic control.

Therefore, it is very important to educate patients to have a good blood pressure and blood sugar control. Also, SLE and amyloidosis are important etiologies for CRF.

Finally, diseases from renal itself include infection, glomerulonephritis, interstitial nephritis, ischemia renal disease, and UTI.

So we have talked about the etiologies of CRF. In the next step, we will learn Complications of ESRD.
