Treatment for Renal Failure Caused by Diabetes

2012-10-11 11:04

Diabetes is a disease in which people’s blood sugar levels are two high. It affects people around the world. The high blood sugar level can influence all the systems of human body, so Diabetes can cause many complications, and Diabetic Nephropathy is one of them. If the kidney damage can not be controlled well, the condition will develop into Renal Failure.

People with Diabetes are 20 times more likely to develop Renal Failure than people without Diabetes. Both type 1 Diabetes and type 2 Diabetes can develop into Diabetic Nephropathy, patients with type 1 Diabetes have a higher possibility to develop Diabetic Nephropathy, and the possibility is about 30%-40%. About 20% of patients with type 2 Diabetes can develop into Diabetic Nephropathy. However, there is a minority of patients who have Diabetes for 20-25 years, but they still have not developed into Diabetic Nephropathy yet.

If the Diabetic Nephropathy develops into Renal Failure, patients are recommended dialysis. Generally speaking, patients with Diabetic Nephropathy undergo dialysis earlier than patients with other kinds of kidney diseases. Dialysis can help Renal Failure patients clean the blood and maintain their lives to some extent. But the final result will still be kidney transplant.

The treatment Renal Failure patients really need is the one which can help them enhance the kidney function and avoid dialysis and kidney transplant. We need other blood purification techniques such as plasma exchange, immune absorption, blood perfusion to eliminate the medium molecular and macromolecular substances which dialysis can not eliminate. After the blood is cleaned thoroughly, we need Chinese herbal medicines to repair the damaged kidneys and nourish them, different kinds of herbals medicines have different functions. After a period of time, the kidney function can be improved gradually. As long as the kidney function can be enhanced, Renal Failure patients have the possibility to avoid dialysis and kidney transplant. Apart from the kidney damage, Diabetes is also need to be treated, while Chinese herbal medicines also have such a function of lowering blood sugar.
