Can Kidney Cyst Cause Protein in UrineA kidney cyst is a fluid-filled sac that can grow very big with age. When it presses nearby organs, it can cause many symptoms. Can kidney cyst cause protein in urine?

Common symptoms of kidney cyst

There are two types of kidney cyst: simple and complex kidney cyst. In general, a simple kidney cyst cause no symptoms until it grow more than 3 cm. A complex kidney cyst has the risk of being cancer and always cause kidney function damage.

Cause of protein in urine

Protein is originally reabsorbed by renal tubules. Normal protein amount in urine is less than 150 ml each day. When kidneys are damaged, large amounts of protein leaks out due to damaged glomeruli and renal tubules.

A large kidney cyst can damage kidney function if it presses nearby tissues. The blood vessels are narrowed and blood volume passing through kidneys reduces. As a result, ischmia and anoxia occur inside the kidneys. As time goes by, the kidney function decreases, and proteinuria happens.

Treatment for protein in urine due to kidney cyst

If we can exclude other reasons and assure that kidney cyst is the cause of proteinuria, we need to take treatment to shrink kidney cyst.

In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital, we use traditional Chinese medicines. The effective ingredients of traditional Chinese herbs can inhibit the renal tubular epithelial cells from secreting fluid any more. What’s more, these herbal medicines can increase blood circulation so that fluid can be reabsorbed into blood vessels, and then kidney cyst will become smaller and smaller.

One more thing, these Chinese herbs are only available in our hospital, Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital. Patients need to come to China for treatment. If it is that possible for you, you can email to us at or leave a message below.
