The Origin of Diabetic Nephropathy and How to Prevent It.

2018-07-08 11:17

When one mentions kidney disease, the first thing people think of is the terrible uremia. It limits the freedom of life of the patients because the kidneys can do work—filtering the body's poisonous substances must be done through extracorporeal dialysis. Not to mention, it is also costly. Diabetes and uremia have a certain origin, because once severe diabetic nephropathy occurs, uremia may occur.

1. What is diabetic nephropathy?

Diabetic nephropathy onset of insidious, slow progress, early micro-proteinuria, and then developed into continuous proteinuria, but patients with no obvious symptoms, some patients may show more urine foam.

As the kidney damage is further aggravated, kidney function impairment (increased serum creatinine, urea nitrogen, etc.), renal hypertension, and edema will gradually appear. Eventually, the disease progresses to late stage, with severe renal failure, uremia, and hemodialysis Or kidney transplantation treatment is one of the main causes of death of diabetic patients.

2. What are the predisposing factors of diabetic nephropathy?

Diabetic nephropathies are kidney damage caused by hyperglycemia. Lesions can affect the entire kidney, including glomeruli, renal tubules, interstitial renal tissue, and renal blood vessels.

The main cause of diabetic nephropathy in diabetic patients is poor glycemic control. Long-term hyperglycemia damages microvessels and affects kidney function.

In addition to high blood sugar, there will be other factors. Such as: Lipid disorders can damage the glomerulus and increase proteinuria; In hypertension, renal vascular resistance increases, kidney blood flow decreases, resulting in glomerular hypertension; The presence of high glomerular pressure will promote glomerulosclerosis and cause proteinuria. A high-protein diet can significantly increase glomerular blood flow, exacerbating kidney damage and aggravating proteinuria.

Studies have confirmed that the improvement of multiple risk factors (hypoglycemic, lipid-lowering, antihypertensive, and post-intervention interventions) decreased the proportion of diabetic nephropathy to renal failure, and the survival rate increased significantly. Therefore, patients with diabetic kidney disease should take a healthy lifestyle (dietary therapy and physical exercise) to prevent or delay the occurrence of diabetic nephropathy.

Of course, diabetics also need to control blood glucose, blood pressure, blood lipids and other indicators to prevent diabetic kidney disease.

In addition the diabetics patients often take the western medicines to control the blood sugar,that will hurt the kidney, then long time later the kidney function will be damaged. So the more important thing is to find a reasonable treatment to solve the problem in time. At present the western medicine has no effective treatment except the dialysis or kidney transplant, only the special natural treatment in Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine can help patients stabilized the blood pressure and blood sugar, strengthen their immunity ,repair the damaged kidney cells and gradually improve the kidney function.
