All amino acids are present in overflow proteinuria, and tubular reabsorption is prevented as a result of absorption capacity completion [21].
* Overflow proteinuria occurs when small molecular light chains escape the glomerular filtration barrier and overwhelm the tubular reabsorptive capacity.
The most common form is overflow proteinuria caused by high plasma protein concentrations that exceed the reabsorptive capacity of the tubules.
