2017-01-09 16:57

Should Diabetic Nephropahy patient with kidney failure take dialysis earlier? For this question, the answer is yes. Due to the complications of cardiovascular and uremia symptoms, the DN patient should take dialysis earlier.

When should DN patient take dialysis?

In general, only when the Ccr downs to 15-20ml/min, the patient will need to start dialysis. However, if they have obvious gastrointestinal problems, high blood pressure or uncontrolled heart failure, they should take dialysis earlier.

What are the difference of Hemodialysis and Peritoneal Dialysis for DN patient?

For patient with kidney failure caused by DN, the survival rate of Hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis are similar, but they have lower survival rate than other patients. The main cause of death in DN kidney failure is cardiovascular complications.

Hemodialysis is benefit for the controlling of blood sugar, but it is not good for the controlling of cardiovascular complications. Due to vasculopathy, the establishment of artery or intravenous fistula is hard. While during peritoneal dialysis, the blood sugar level is hard to be controlled.

So if the patients have coronary heart disease or stroke, they can choose peritoneal dialysis; if their blood sugar level is heard to be controlled, they should take hemodialysis.
