Article / Publication Particulars
To make clear the affiliation between proteinuria and congestive coronary heart failure (CHF), 24-hour urinary protein determinations have been obtained from 27 sufferers with objectively documented CHF, earlier than and after remedy of the CHF. The outcomes show that modest proteinuria is a frequent function of CHF and that this proteinuria reverses promptly with profitable CHF remedy. Proteinuria exceeding 500 mg/day occurred solely in sufferers with acute pulmonary edema. Nevertheless, there was no different correlation between severity of proteinuria and kind or chronicity of CHF. When proteinuria exceeds 1 g/24 h or when proteinuria doesn’t reverse inside 2 weeks of profitable CHF remedy, intrinsic renal illness ought to be suspected.
