Patients with kidney disease are monitored carefully for proteinuria, and this session illustrates the classification, types, and diagnosis of proteinuria. Treatment strategies are emphasized, including the use of antiproteinuric agents and how they are different in nephrotic versus nephritic syndromes. The role of the nephrology advanced practice nurse will be a focus of this session, but all nephrology nurses will gain an appreciation of their role in managing this complication in patients with kidney disease.
