Some Symptoms For The Diabetic Nephropathy

2018-12-14 10:42

Diabetic nephropathy refers to kidney disease caused by long-term hyperglycemia, which is one of the serious complications of diabetes.Diabetic nephropathy affects 2 to 4 out of every 10 people with diabetes.

The symptoms of early diabetic nephropathy are not obvious, only a small amount of protein in the urine, because there is no symptoms, but also easier to be ignored by patients, many patients had edema examination, most of the advanced diabetic nephropathy.

Early signs of diabetic nephropathy

1.There is a lot of foam in the urine

This is the number one sign of diabetic nephropathy.If proteinuria persists, glomerular filtration has decreased significantly.When the glomerular filtration rate is lower than normal, a lot of proteinuria, will soon develop renal failure.

2.Edema and nephrotic syndrome

About half of diabetic nephropathy patients develop edema, which is most likely due to the loss of large amounts of protein in the urine, resulting in hypoproteinemia. In addition, about 20% of patients will develop nephrotic syndrome.

3.Very high blood pressure

Aldosterone, the blood-vessel constrictor in the kidney, increases in aldosterone when the kidney is sick, leading to uncontrolled hypertension, a condition that often occurs in patients with kidney failure.

If patients with diabetes find that their blood pressure rises, they should not rush to take antihypertensive drugs first, but look for the reason why their blood pressure rises.

4.Leg cramps

The kidney secretes a hormone that regulates calcium metabolism. When kidney function declines, this hormone will also decrease, and calcium absorption will also be hindered, resulting in reduced calcium in the blood, which is prone to osteoporosis and fracture.This lack of calcium is caused by kidney disease and is generally not relieved by calcium supplements.
