How Diabetes Affects Kidneys: Diabetic Nephropathy Dialysis

How Diabetes Affects Kidneys: Diabetic Nephropathy Dialysis

Each tiny action we commit involves the risk of a condition, disease or disorder. For instance, sneezing a bit too hard can rupture an eye vessel, or having your face right up against the wind in a moving bus can expose you to germs. Diabetes is as prevalent as common cold in every household and there is no end to the list of causes that can make you suffer from it. While regular check-ups, medications, insulin shots can help you cope, there are certain measures that if followed, can enable you to avoid the risk of secondary yet fatal diseases. Diabetic nephropathy is one such condition.

When Kidney is affected to the extent that it cannot perform its functions(like excretion of wastes in urine, filtering blood from waste, maintaining electrolyte balance,etc.) properly, it is called as Nephropathy. The reason behind kidney damage could be many, but if diabetes is the prime cause, it is known as diabetic nephropathy in medical terms.

A few features of this disorder are as follows:

  1. The kidneys comprise of several small blood vessels, which perform the function of sifting waste from your blood. Diabetes at an advanced stage can impede smooth functioning of these vessels. As a result, the kidneys malfunction or a person faces kidney failure.
  2. Nephropathy brings along some other health issues as well. A person's blood pressure may increase as a result, thus making him or her prone to heart attacks and strokes. Sharp rise in cholesterol and triglyceride levels has also been noticed.
  3. A doctor will check for the presence of a protein called albumin in the patient's urine to know if you suffer from nephropathy or not. Other tests to determine the functioning of kidneys are - S.Creatinine, eGFR, Albumin/Creatinine Ratio (ACR), 24 Hour Urine Protein, Renal Function Tests, etc. A diabetic person should therefore go in for yearly tests.

In a given situation such as this, dialysis or kidney transplant comes to your aid. Both are done when kidney functions are irreversibly damaged. Dialysis can be of two kinds; Hemodialysis or Peritoneal dialysis. Dialysis (also called as Renal Replacement Therapy) remedies kidney damage and kidney failure by using a machine to extract salts, wastes and other fluids in excess from the blood to let your blood have a healthy composition. Dialysis should only be done under the supervision of an experienced nephrologist for best results.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you have grade one obesity with 33.34 kgs/m2 bmi. In this situation weight reduction is very tough. On top of it you have hypothyroidism, which causes weight gain, if not in complete control. To achieve very good control tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units /l. I am not aware of your tsh levels. If they are high please see that those levels come down to as mentioned above. Very strict diet control and regular exercise can help you to cut 5 to 8% of present weight. Thanks.

increased acidity and colitis are not the same but in many cases can be related to each other. symptoms of acidity could be stomach ache, recurrent cough, feeling uneasy, or dizziness. colitis could present with anaemia, diarrhoea, uneasiness, and weight loss. a proper history and evaluation could help you diagnose the condition and hence begin with appropriate therapy. feel free to consult me if you would like my assistance

Is diabetes related with alcohol intake even if the person is physically fit and working out regularly in gym?

Is diabetes related with alcohol intake even if the person is physically fit and working out regularly in gym?
Hello, Alcohol per say, does not precipitate diabetes. But if a person with diabetes indulges in alcohol intake on regular basis in a fair amount daily or on most days of a week, it does have bad effects on glucose control. Alcohol in large quantity damages gastrointestinal mucous lining, affecting absorption of digested food and nutrients. Can cause gastritis, affect appetite, cause malnutrition, damages liver functions, gives empty calories, no energy. Patient may not able to recognise about low glucose episodes (hypoglycemia unawareness). Thanks.

General Physician,
In my body, uric acid is 7.02 mg/lb .how can decrease it and stop making for future .plz help me .I am very tension.
Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male). Normal values will vary from laboratory to laboratory. Also important to blood uric acid levels are purines.Things that may cause this slow-down in the removal of uric acid include rich foods, being overweight, having diabetes, taking certain diuretics (sometimes called water pills) and drinking too much alcohol. Other less common causes are a diet high in purine-containing items or your body producing too much uric acid.Drink apple cider vinegar. Add 3 teaspoons of vinegar to 8 ounces of water and have it 2-3 times every day to treat uric acid. A diet rich in folic acid can help lower uric acid naturally. Folic acid rich foods like pinto beans, sunflower seeds and lentils should be included in your diet.

What is a juvenile diabetes and type 1 and type 2 diabetes and how to treat this disease and what precautions to take.
Rahil, Earlier Juvenile diabetes term was used for T1 DM, because it was thought that it occurs only in juveniles (children). Now it is called T1DM, where only insulin is needed for treatment and survival. T2DM is invariably in adults and older persons. There is lack of insulin and resistance to insulin plus patient is usually over weight. In case T2DM one can prevent it by adapting modified life style- regular exercise for more than 1 hour, restricted diet giving exact calories based on normal body weight, avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and aerated sweetened drinks. Consume more of fruits, green leafy vegetables and salads. Plus refrain from alcohol and smoking.

A few patients have enquired about the 1st line of drug for Type 2 diabetes. Usually, Metformin is the first drug to be given in non-pregnant Type 2 Diabetes, along with advice on diet changes, exercises & lifestyle modifications (quit smoking, quit or reduce alcohol, etc). But in a few patients, Insulin might be used as 1st line. But even in such patients, Metformin is given along with Insulin.
