2014-03-26 18:50| Font Size A A A

Diabetic Nephropathy refers to a common complication of Diabetes. As the disorder progresses, a range of symptoms will occur accordingly. If your latest test report show creatinine 4.2 and protein in urine, what would you do with it?

Honestly speaking, creatinine 4.2 and proteinuria indicate a severe condition. Then why?

In normal condition, the creatinine level can be kept at a reasonable range(0.5-1.1mg/dL for women and 0.6-1.2mg/dL for men). And elevated creatinine level occurs when at least 50% kidney function is lost. From the above analysis, we can confirm that creatinine 4.2 is much higher than the normal value. Besides, when the amount of protein in urine is above 300mg/24h, it can be named proteinuria. In the meanwhile, there will be a sharp decline in GFR. If poorly controlled, other symptoms including swelling, high blood pressure or glomeruloslerosis can also be seen.

How to treat creatinine 4.2 and proteinuria in diabetic nephropathy?

1. Regulate blood sugar level Glucose-lowering drugs or insulin are generally used to regulate blood sugar level, in daily life, they also need to eat some fresh fruits, vegetables and take some exercises.

2. Lower blood pressure Anti-hypertensive drugs like ACE Inhibitors, ARBs, etc are commonly used to control hypertension. And the target value can be controlled within 130/80mm Hg or below. Besides, it is also necessary to take measures to reduce blood lipid level.
