How to Test Protein in Urine at Home


hello friends my name is doctor Puru dhawan and in this video we will talk about how a kidney failure patient can test amount
of protein coming in the urine with the help of these urine reagents strips also
known as urinalysis strips which is very commonly available on Amazon you can buy
it I just purchased just for rupees 360 for hundreds if that means with the help
of this strip which cost less than 400 rupees you can detect amount of protein
coming in your urine this test will help every kidney failure patient to evaluate
the condition of kidney as well as the treatment they are undergoing because
every kidney failure patient suffer from very common symptoms and that is
proteinuria also loss of protein through urine and if the amount of protein is
decreasing you can estimate that the treatment is working and the treatment
is showing its effectiveness and the level of protein is decreasing with the
decreasing amount of protein in urine one can estimate the efficacy of a
treatment if the level of the protein is decreasing that treatment which are you
are undergoing whether it’s KFRT treatment at Sai Sanjivani or any other
kidney failure treatment it’s working or not so without wasting any further time
let’s move to the test what do we have to do we have to do very simple tests we
have to take a strip and dip this strip into your urine if your urine contains Albumin this strip will change color you can see the color chart given
on the bottle and there are two paper paste it on this strip one is light
green or give it is for glucose and you as you can see this color is similar
to this one and this shows that that strip is negative frog glucose and this
is for protein and you can see this is similar to this negative part that means
in this strip is not used yet let’s dip this strip into the our sample urine
sample and see how this color changes and up to what exchange for testing
purposes I am using pure sample of Albumin let’s dip this trip into the urine after dipping this strip for few seconds into the urine sample you can see the
color of the strip has been change yellow to green and if we compare with
it with the chart you can clearly seen that the protein part of the strip has
been changed to green and it comes nearby somewhere here or here that means
the protein is high and we show the damage is gone going in the kidney is
high this much amount of protein in your urine clearly denotes that that amount
of damage in your kidney is very much high so if a kidney failure patient
wants to stop the protein loss one has to work on in this kidney with this high
amount of protein coming in your urine you can easily evaluate the amount of
damage which is undergoing in your kidney let’s move to test number two in
which the sample of the glucose is also positive that means patient is of
diabetic nephropathy a patient urine sample is positive for both glucose as
well as for protein part and see how the strips react and how the color changes I
just dip this strip into the urine sample which is positive for both
protein as well as the glucose and you can see that the color has been changed
to yellow to green which is same as earlier the protein losses in the urine
is around you can see with the color chart it’s around the three plus and
that strip of the glucose is changing color from blue to it converted to green
and still changing color let’s wait for 60 seconds more so that the test can be
conclusive after 60 second is very much clear that the glucose level in the
urine is also very much high it’s around you can see with the test color chart
again that it’s around four plus which is very bad for a diabetic nephropathy
patient patient is losing glucose as well as protein from urine
now the question arises what this test mean and how we can stop this protein
loss in urine every kidney failure patient wants to stop protein in urea one
has to work on the causes of kidney failure because in most cases of kidney
failure major cause of kidney failures are always diabetes or either
hypertension now the question arises what this test mean and how we can stop
protein in urea if a kidney failure patient wants to stop protein and urea
failure patient wants to decrease the level of creatinine if the kidney failure
patient wants to stop dialysis or avoid dialysis one has to work on the causes
of kidney failure and in most cases of kidney failure causes are either
hypertension or diabetes so in kidney function restoration treatment our first
step is always control both of these within few days of treatment of kidney
function restoration treatment the level of diabetes and the level of hypertension
are maintained and controlled as they come in control the progression of the disease
also stops and the level of creatinine start falling sharply within few month
you see that the level which was earlier four to five comes to three to
two and the symptom which you are facing like anemia fatigue tiredness just
disappear like that as we start working on a kidney as we start working on the
other causes of kidney failure the level of creatinine urea and protein loss falls
sharply within few days of kidney function restoration treatment all the
symptom which is coming in a body like fatigue anemia
tiredness headache disappear like that why because in kidney function restoration treatment we think that if we just work on the causes of the kidney failure
we can stop the progression of this disease any kind of damaged which is
already happened can’t be reversed very quickly but we can stop its progression
with this movement we can stop further damage of the kidney for that we have to
do very simple thing we have to work on the causes of kidney failure I think
this is sufficient for this video if you have any kind of
doubt if ever have any kind of query you can call on our number given below
with the appointment you can come and meet me me if you have any kind of doubt or
inquiry you can call on the number given below if you have any kind of doubt or
query you can call on the numbers given below you can also book an appointment
with me on the same number you can also visit our website Saikidneycare.com where
we have given a very small form so that you can tell us about your kidney
condition you have to fill your name age and gender you can level what kind of kidney failure you are suffering from attach your medical record along with
your form so that that our doctors can evaluate what kind of kidney failure you are suffering from with this it’s time to say goodbye see you soon in our next
