Do People with Diabetes Always Need Dialysis

Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney disease, and about 20% to 30% of diabetics have kidney disease in the future. Do people with diabetes always need dialysis? Read on to learn more information.

How does diabetes cause kidney failure?

Diabetes means your blood glucose is higher than the normal range. To bring the level down, your kidneys have to work hard to filter the excess sugar from the blood. Long-term hard work can damage the kidneys. Besides, high blood glucose is destructive. It can damage the blood vessels, and the kidney is a cluster of blood vessels. That is why kidneys are damaged easily by diabetes.

What is the treatment for Diabetic Nephropathy patients to avoid dialysis?

2. To reduce high blood pressure. High blood pressure can also make your kidney condition worse. Conventional treatment is to use ACEI or ARBs, which do not only lower blood pressure, but also reduce proteinuria as well as protecting renal function.

Proteinuria is also an independent factor that damage your kidneys, and it usually occurs in early stage of Diabetic Nephropathy, and with the deterioration of disease, proteinuria will become worse. Massive proteinuria can speed up glomerulosclerosis so as to make your kidney condition worse. In addition to steroids and immunosuppressants, you need to repair kidney damage if you want to reduce proteinuria.

4. To repair kidney damage and promote renal function. Toxin-Removing Treatment can be used in this step. It can eliminate waste products including glucose from the blood to make internal environment clean. It can also dilate blood vessels and improve blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, it can reduce renal inflammation and halt the progression of disease. After about one month’s treatment, all associated symptoms will be relieved greatly, and renal function will get improved.
