Does Diabetes with Feet Swelling Mean Kidney Failure

Does Diabetes with Feet Swelling Mean Kidney FailureFeet swelling in Diabetes can result in various causes, and does not necessarily mean Kidney Failure. Here are some of the common contributing factors for swelling of the feet in diabetics. Want personalized advice? Chat with our online doctor now!

1. Kidney Disease or dysfunction

Due to chronic high blood sugar levels, the kidneys may be damaged and are incapable of eliminating enough fluid and sodium from the blood, resulting in edema usually in the legs and around the eyes. A person who suffers from Diabetes and swollen feet should contact his or her doctor instantly to prevent further kidney damage and Kidney Failure.

2. Neuropathy

Impaired nerves fail to send signals of pain and discomfort to the brain; hence, diabetics usually experience foot injuries and infections. Often feet swelling is a symptom of an infected wound or foot ulcer.

3. Congestive heart failure

In this serious condition, the heart loses its ability to pump blood efficiently, so the rate of blood circulation is adversely affected. When it becomes difficult for the blood in the feet to move back to the heart, it can back up in the feet, ankles, and legs, causing edema (swelling).

4. Medication

Prolonged use of certain medications can cause the feet to swelling. Such medicines include certain Diabetes drugs called thiazolidinediones, drugs that open blood vessels (vasodilators), non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), calcium channel blockers, etc.

As you can see, the causes of feet swelling in Diabetes are many. In order to confirm the exact causes of swollen feet in your case, you are suggested to consult a doctor immediately, or Contact Us for free and professional advice.
