Diabetes and kidney (Nephropathy)

Diabetes is the most common cause of kidney failure.

Diabetic nephropathy is damage to both kidneys caused by diabetes.
 
A frequent complication of diabetes is high blood pressure(hypertension).
 Constant high blood pressure also leads to gradual kidney damage and adds to the effects of diabetes
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Problems of kidney disease in diabetes
Throughout its early course, diabetic nephropathy has no symptoms. 
They develop in late stages like :
  • edema: swelling, usually around the eyes in the mornings; later, general body swelling may result, such as swelling of the legs
  • weakness and fatigue and anemia
  • foamy appearance or excessive frothing of the urine (caused by the proteinuria)
  • weight gain (from fluid accumulation)
  • anorexia (poor appetite)
  • nausea and vomiting
  • malaise (general ill feeling)
  • headache
  • frequent hiccups
How is kidney disease diagnosed?
Kidney damage is diagnosed with urine and blood tests. 
The earliest sign of kidney problems in people with diabetes is the presence of small amounts of protein in the urine. 
If not treated ,this condition leads to more protein in the urine, then to gradual loss of kidney function.
Several blood tests can test the kidney’s ability to filter and detoxify (clean) the blood. 
These include creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) tests.
 
How do you protect your kidneys?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Important treatments for kidney disease are tight control of blood glucose and blood pressure.
Once kidneys fail, dialysis is necessary or to get a kidney transplant.
