How to Prevent Diabetic Nephropathy Developing into Kidney FailureDiabetic Nephropathy is one of the common complications of diabetes. If it develops into a certain degree, kidney function injury will appear and at last it will lead to kidney failure in the advanced stage. So many patients with diabetic kidney disease concern a lot about how to prevent diabetic nephropathy developing into kidney failure. There are steps you can take to reduce the risk:

Control blood sugar

High blood sugar will cause a series of metabolic disorder, which is the matter factor to the occurrence of diabetic nephropathy and kidney failure. Strengthening blood sugar control is effective in delaying the occurrence of microalbuminuria(MAU) and its progress into clinical albuminuria. Once you are diagnosed with diabetes, you should take a treatment as soon as possible because for type2 diabetics, there is no evident symptom in the early stage. It is pointed out that strict blood sugar control is the key factor to reduce the risk of diabetic complications and kidney failure.

Control blood pressure

High blood sugar can accelerate the development of diabetic nephropathy and the decrease of kidney function. Though high blood pressure is not the cause of diabetic nephropathy, it can worsen the condition of diabetics and finally develop into kidney failure. Hypertensive patients with diabetes should keep it lower than 130/85mmHg, and hypertensive patients with kidney damage should keep it lower than 125/75mmHg or 130/80mmHg. Thus can delay the development to kidney failure.

Control blood lipid

It is always seen that patients with diabetic nephropathy often have dyslipidemia. It is related to the poor blood sugar control and worsens with the development of kidney damage. High blood lipid speed up the progress of diabetic nephropathy and if it is not well controlled, diabetic nephropathy will finally develop into kidney failure. Therefore, blood lipid control is an non-ignorable method to prevent kidney failure happening.

Limit smoking

Smoking is the independent dangerous factor of diabetic nephropathy for type2 diabetics. Studies show that smoking can result in vasoconstriction and abnormity of platelet function and blood pressure regulating function, thus worsening blood vessels damage.

Except for the above methods, there is one therapy that has been proved useful for diabetic nephropathy, that is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which focuses on the damaged kidney inherent cells. It is significant in preventing nephropathy developing into kidney failure. If you have any interest , please leave a message or consult the online expert freely. Wish you getting well soon!
