Frequent micturition may simply be due to anxiety. If you have any burning or pain during urination please get urine routine and culture sensitivity test done. Ultrasound kub may also help in ruling out any stone which may present in similar manner. For anxiety you need to relax. Too much strict schedule and work pressure can result in anxiety. Give some time to sports or games in morning to help yourself relieve any tensions.

Diabetic Nephropathy - Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Nephrology

Diabetic Nephropathy - Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

What is Diabetic Nephropathy?

Diabetic nephropathy (Diabetic Kidney Disease) is defined as the progressive damage to the kidneys caused by diabetes. It is characterised by the scarring of the glomeruli in the kidneys due to prolonged diabetes mellitus.

What Causes Diabetic Nephropathy?

Diabetes is a condition characterized by high concentration of blood sugar. Although the cause of Diabetes Nephropathy is not yet well defined, it is likely that the high sugar levels in the blood damage the blood vessels present in the kidneys that help to filter waste products, thus resulting in decreased kidney function and ultimately, kidney failure.

Not everyone with diabetes suffers from diabetic nephropathy. Although, factors that can increase your chances of getting diabetic neuropathy are-

  1. Smoking

  2. Poor control of blood glucose

  3. High blood pressure

  4. History of kidney diseases

What are the symptoms of diabetic nephropathy?

In the early stages, there may be no symptoms at all, but as the disease progresses, you may notice swelling in the extremities like your feet. Thus it is recommended to get your blood albumin levels tested on a regular basis. If it is diagnosed in early stages, the damage can be reversed. Other symptoms that can indicate damage to the kidneys are-

  1. Severe malaise

  2. Headaches

  3. Nausea

  4. Lack of appetite

  5. Frequent voiding

  6. Itchiness of skin

  7. General feeling of illness

Diagnostic tests that can confirm diabetic nephropathy are-

Routine urine test (urinalysis) - Kidney diseases are detected by the presence of a protein in the urine called albumin and this condition is called albuminuria. Other parameters that must be regularly monitored are-

  1. Blood pressure

  2. Cholesterol levels in your blood

How can you treat/ manage diabetic nephropathy?

If this type of nephropathy is diagnosed in the early stages, the damage to the kidneys can be reversible. The key to managing diabetic nephropathy are-

  1. Diet: Reduce the dietary intake of salt, phosphorous and potassium in the advanced stages.

  2. Glycemic Control: Monitor your blood glucose levels regularly

  3. Management of Hypertension: It is important to manage your blood pressure as it can have a direct effect on the coronary blood vessels which in turn pump blood to the various blood vessels of the body

  4. Renal Replacement Therapy: In chronically ill patients, renal replacement therapy is the best option. This can include haemodialysis (a procedure to flush out toxins from the blood, such as urea), peritoneal dialysis or ultimately renal transplantation.

I have urinary infection. Want to urinate but can not. Have pain in lower abdomen and back.

M. sc Psychology, BHMS

I have urinary infection. Want to urinate but can not. Have pain in lower abdomen and back.
I suggest you to go for once whole urine check up, & scan abdomen, to rule out the reasons. Maintain proper hygein. A sif in case of infection, its needed. Take more water. Minimum 3-4 litres/day, though you do not feel like to take. Here I advised scan to rule out any ranal stones, the t/t also, depends on that. If any stones, found, depending the size&location, there are good homeo medicines for that, which will help to prevent the recurrence also, by following proper guidence, like water intake, etc.

If this is the first episode of urine infection, then you don't need to worry much, in the form of protection, etc. If its happening repeatedly, you need evaluation in the form of partner evaluation (whether he is the source), presence of constipation, diabetes, etc. In that case you need to take care of what is called" post-coital prophylaxis" that is care after sexual intercourse, like local wash, urination, and antibiotics in severe cases.

I have some urinal infection. Can you suggest which medicine I can take?

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I have some urinal infection. Can you suggest which medicine I can take?
how long since you have started using antibiotics to treat urinary tract infections. I may prescribe drugs depending on your health condition and the type of bacterium found in your urine tests. Drink plenty of water to dilute your urine and help flush out bacteria. Avoid drinks that may irritate your bladder. Avoid coffee, alcohol, and soft drinks containing citrus juices and caffeine until your infection has cleared. They can irritate your bladder and tend to aggravate your frequent or urgent need to urinate. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

It indicates concentrated urine, increase your fluid intake to 2 -3 litres per day. And if you are having decreased appetite and yellow eyes in addition to yellow urine then get your liver function test done to rule out jaundice.

You are not diabetic. Normal fasting blood sugar should be below 100 though. By proper diet and exercise it will come back to normal easily. You need to check your serum uric acid level and urine for routine and microscopic examinations. Get back with the reports. Do not get urself dehydrated. And avoid high protein diet.
