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.

You need to keep a tab on your sugar levels regularly. Also increase the intake of veggies, salads, whole grain cereals like jowar, bajra, oats, etc and avoid foods high in sugars such as sweets, rice, potato, etc. Take medications on time and ensure you eat small potions at regular intervals. Never skip any meal.

Your fasting and pp level are normal. However your hba1c is on a lower side. Did you had a low sugar (less than 70mg/dl) in last 3 months. If yes than your medication needs to be changed as low sugar in a heart patient is dangerous. I will advised you to check your sugar before breakfast, before lunch, before dinner, 2 hours after breakfast, 2 hours after lunch, 2 hours after dinner and at 3 am. Whenever you feel dizziness, hunger, sweating or palpitation than check your blood sugar at that time.

Iron is a mineral that makes up an important part of hemoglobin, the substance in blood that carries oxygen throughout the body. Iron also carries oxygen in muscles, helping them function properly. In addition, iron helps increase your resistance to stress and disease. The body absorbs iron more efficiently during pregnancy. Therefore it is important to consume more iron while you are pregnant to ensure that you and your baby are getting enough oxygen. Iron will also help you avoid symptoms of tiredness, weakness, irritability, and depression. How much iron should I consume during pregnancy? following a balanced diet and including foods high in iron can help ensure that you are consuming enough iron throughout your pregnancy. In addition, the following guidelines will help: 1. The u. S. Recommended daily allowance (usrda) for iron is 30 milligrams (mg) per day for pregnant and lactating (breastfeeding) women. 2. Eating at least three servings of iron-rich foods a day will help ensure that you are getting 30 mg. Of iron in your daily diet. Please refer to the chart below for a list of iron-rich foods. One of the best ways to get iron into your diet is to eat a highly fortified breakfast cereal, such as total, which has 18 mg of iron. Note that iron intake is not equal to iron absorption. Absorption of iron into the body is greatest with meat sources of iron. 3. The best sources of iron include enriched grain products; lean meat, poultry, and fish; and leafy green vegetables. Please refer to the chart below for a list of iron sources. Should I take an iron supplement? talk to your health care provider about an iron supplement. The national academy of sciences recommends that all pregnant women following a balanced diet take an iron supplement providing 30 mg. Of iron during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. Your doctor might increase this dose if you become anemic. Iron deficiency anemia is a condition in which the size and number of red blood cells are reduced. This condition might result from inadequate intake of iron or from blood loss. Sources of iron meat & seafood lean beef chicken clams crab egg yolk fish lamb liver oysters pork sardines shrimp turkey veal fruits all berries apricots dried fruits including prunes, raisins and apricots grapes grapefruit oranges plums prune juice watermelon legumes dry and peas lentils soybeans breads & cereals enriched rice and pasta soft pretzel whole grain and enriched or fortified breads and cereals vegetables black-eyed peas broccoli brussels sprouts collard and turnip greens lima beans sweet potatoes spinach other foods molasses peanuts peanut butter pine nuts pumpkin or squash seeds other facts about iron vitamin c helps your body use iron. It is important to include sources of vitamin c along with foods containing iron and iron supplements. Foods high in vitamin c include orange juice, grapefruit juice, green peppers, broccoli, melon, strawberries, and cabbage. Caffeine can inhibit the absorption of iron. Try to consume iron supplements and foods high in iron at least one to three hours before or after drinking or eating foods containing caffeine. In general, caffeine is found in coffee, tea, colas, and chocolate products. Caffeine-free colas and many medicines also contain caffeine. Iron is lost in cooking some foods. To retain iron, cook foods in a minimal amount of water and for the shortest possible time. Also, cooking in cast iron pots can add up to 80 percent more iron to foods. Constipation is a common side effect of taking iron supplements. To help relieve constipation, slowly increase the fiber in your diet by including whole grain breads, cereals, fruits, and vegetables. Drinking at least eight cups of fluids daily and increasing moderate exercise (as recommended by your physician) can also help you avoid constipation.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Vinay, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder, where our own immune system produces antibodies against thyroxine producing cells. This causes deficiency of thyroxine leading to hypothyroidism. Only treatment is to give thyroxine tablets. Iodine has no role in this condition.

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.
