Your doctor may prescribe Acthar to help control proteinuria (too much protein in your urine). When the filters in your kidneys don't work properly, protein can spill into your urine.
Some kidney diseases that cause too much protein in your urine are called:
- Membranous Nephropathy (MN)
- Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS)
- Minimal Change Disease (MCD)
- Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis (MPGN)
- Lupus Nephritis
- IgA Nephropathy
