An analysis of data from more than 800,000 patients showed that people with heavy proteinuria have a shorter life expectancy than those with low levels. Among 40-year-olds, men with high levels of proteinuria were anticipated to die 15.2 years earlier and women were expected to die 17.4 years earlier than patients without proteinuria. The study is reported in the American Journal of Kidney Diseases.
