As we all know, proteinuria is one of the symptoms of kidney disease, clinical proteinuria is often pided into intermittent proteinuria and persistent proteinuria. First, intermittent proteinuria refers to urinary protein more than normal level, but not every time urine were abnormal. This type of proteinuria is common in the following three cases:

1, benign transient proteinuria: often without kidney disease, only in the physical examination occasionally found proteinuria, and then quickly disappear, often without clinical significance, good prognosis.

2, functional proteinuria: refers to proteinuria without substantial kidney disease. The treatment of functional proteinuria is to find the reason, if there is no kidney disease, in the removal of the cause of proteinuria often disappear. Common causes of functional proteinuria: high fever, severe exercise, cold, the use of norepinephrine, congestive heart failure, severe scoliosis, injection of albumin or plasma protein (overflow proteinuria).

3, orthostatic proteinuria: only exists in the upright position, the position of the disappearance of proteinuria is called orthostatic proteinuria. Urinary protein excretion is generally not more than 1.0g/24h, the prognosis is good.
