How Does Diabetic Nephropathy Lead to Kidney Failure

2014-03-21 23:26| Font Size A A A

Diabetic Nephropathy refers to kidney damage caused by diabetes. If some cases, it will develop into kidney failure eventually. Then, how? If you are interested in this, please follow me to find the answer.

How does diabetic nephropathy lead to kidney failure?

According to the latest survey, about 30%-35% people with diabetes can experience kidney damage. Due to inadequate secretion of insulin and glucose and lipid metabolism disorder, the glomerular capillary endothelial cells will be damaged, if not controlled, other renal structures like glomerulus and interstitial will be affected.

As the pathological process is latent and there are usually no symptoms in the early stage, the best treatment period can be delayed. Once it progress into permanent proteinuria, 50% patients will experience kidney failure within 10 years.

What can be done to stop this from happening?

1. To stop this from happening, the first step is to control blood sugar level strictly. As the length and severity of blood glucose has close connection with diabetic kidney disease. Nowadays, oral hypoglycemic agents and insulin treatment are commonly used to bring this under control.

2. Simply controlling blood glucose is not enough to delay it’s progression, patients also need to do other things well. For instance, follow a well-balanced diet, do moderate exercises regularly, lower blood pressure, avoid nephrotoxic drugs and kidney damage, prevent infections and so on.

3. To solve the issue fundamentally, people with diabetic nephropathy should take early steps to improve kidney function. Luckily, experts from our Beijing Tongshantang Hospital have bring patients with good news. And a natural therapy named Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy have been proven to improve kidney function.
