Diabetic Nephropathy - Tips To Help You Manage It!

Diabetic Nephropathy - Tips To Help You Manage It!

Diabetes is not an isolated disease but a syndrome. It brings with it a host of issues, affecting almost all organs, and that is the reason it is a dreaded issue. Diabetes is the result of chronic inflammation and this inflammation gradually spreads to all other organs. One of the main organs adversely affected is the kidneys. The kidneys are essential filtration agents, and impaired kidney function can have a series of bad effects on the body.

The good news is that not everybody with diabetes will have diabetic nephropathy. However, risk factors for developing diabetic nephropathy are:

  1. Severe, uncontrolled diabetes
  2. Family history
  3. Prior kidney disease, even chronic infection
  4. Race or ethnicity (native Americans, African Americans, etc.)
  5. Preexisting hypertension or high cholesterol levels
  6. Obesity

If you have these risk factors, then all efforts should be aimed at keeping blood sugar at highly optimal level. Once it reaches beyond a certain level, it is very difficult to get it under control.

Symptoms

There would be no symptoms in the initial stages

  1. If you suspect that increased sugar levels could be damaging the kidneys, it is imperative to do renal functions annually to test for onset of kidney malfunction
  2. There could be swelling of the feet and ankles
  3. Urine tests may indicate increased levels of protein in the body (serum albumin in particular)

Management

The idea is to arrest or stop damage to the kidneys.

  1. Reduce and maintain blood pressure within the recommended levels. This will depend on the age and overall health status. Using angiotensin converting enzymes or angiotensin receptor blockers is the most effective way to control hypertension and related kidney damage
  2. Keeping blood sugar within the recommended levels helps reduce or stop damage to the blood vessels in the kidneys and thereby, prevent progression
  3. Maintain optimal levels of cholesterol, as this only adds to hypertension, which further worsens kidney function.
  4. Eat a heart-healthy diet and exercise regularly. It is a vicious cycle with components including hypertension, high sugar levels, increased heart disease, which all only continues in a circle nonstop. Breaking this cyclical trend is very important.
  5. Diet should not be too rich in protein, as the kidney function is impaired and may not be able to handle too much protein. Talk to a nutritionist as to how much protein is required and follow it strictly.
  6. Reduce salt levels in the diet, and strictly do not add extra salt onto your plate
  7. If you are a smoker, this is a great reason to quit, as it affects all the above conditions.
  8. Maintain weight under optimal levels. 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist..

Processed Vs Natural Foods - Which Is Better?

Processed Vs Natural Foods - Which Is Better?

The battle of supremacy between processed and whole foods has been raging on for quite some time now. Which is better? Which is more nutritional? The debate seems a never ending one. This article will tell you the benefits and drawbacks of both types of foods. It’s for you to decide which one is better for you and which isn't.

Processed Foods
Processed foods are foods which have been altered in some way or the other to make them healthier, to make them taste better or for storage purposes. Almost every day to day food that you consume is processed. Some examples of processed foods include breakfast cereals, cheese, milks, soft drinks, bread etc.

Advantages of processed foods
Here are some advantages that you drive home from processed foods:
1. Processed foods like different types of jams and juices taste very good and last longer, making them a part of every household.
2. Processed fruits, vegetables and herbs, when stored in cans, tend to be free from bacteria and other harmful agents.
3. They are easy to purchase because they are available in all seasons

Disadvantages of processed foods
Processed foods have their own set of drawbacks. Here are some of them:
1. Some processed foods are genetically modified, which may cause a negative impact on your health.
2. Foods tend to lose their nutritional value when processed.
3. Foods that contain added sugar and fat can lead to a lot of health problems like diabetes, heart diseases and other cardiovascular problems.

Natural foods
Natural foods are those which don’t undergo any change in the form of added color, sugar or flavor. Natural foods go straight from vegetable farms and poultry farms to the market where you can purchase them.

Advantages of natural foods
Fresh fruits, vegetables or meat are categorized under natural foods, including a host of other foods as well which are not processed. Here are their advantages:
1. Natural foods are as nature intended them to be. They contain no added ingredients or flavor.
2. A diet comprising of natural foods keeps many diseases at bay.
3. Natural foods are free harmful flavor enhancers like MSG
4. Natural foods are rich in vitamins and minerals which are necessary for a healthy you.

Disadvantages of natural foods
There are not many disadvantages of natural foods apart from the facts that they are difficult to store, spoil after a certain period and are not available all year round. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user Sabsey pahly to aap ye samjh lijye ki aisi koi kit etc nahi hai filhal ki exact time find out kia ja saky ki Ova falan din fertilized hony ke liye ready hain. Lekin jis medical method ko hum log suggest karty hai wo ye hai ki, jab apki Wife ko periods start ho usky 14 to 16 days tak mein ova full mature ho jata hai. Aur agr inn days mein ap wife ke sath coitus attempt karty ho to conceive hony ke 90% chance hoty hain. Lekin ismey bhi kuch shart hai ki, apki wife under 30 age group mein ho aur gynecological fit aur health honi chahiye. Dusri baat ye ki apky sperms count aur unki morphology and motility means sperm quality bhi achi honi chahiye. To aap pahly apna ek semenogram test karwaye aur report details share kijye. Thanks.

How A High Salt Diet Increases Blood Pressure

B.H.Sc (Food Science & Nutrition), M.H.Sc (Food Science & Nutrition)
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
How A High Salt Diet Increases Blood Pressure

How a diet high in salt increases blood pressure:

  • The amount of salt you eat has a direct effect on your blood pressure.
  • Sodium plays a key role in balancing the levels of fluid in our bodies by signaling to the kidneys when to retain water and when to get rid of water. 
  • When we eat too much salt, our bloodstream has more sodium in it than the surrounding areas of our body. This causes the water in those areas to be pulled into our bloodstream. 
  • Thus salt makes your body hold on to water. If you eat too much salt, the extra water stored in your body raises your blood pressure. So, the more salt you eat, the higher your blood pressure.
  • A high-sodium diet can interfere with this delicate process and reduce kidney function. The result is less water removed from the body, which may lead to higher blood pressure. 
  • The higher your blood pressure, the greater the strain on your heart, arteries, kidneys. Overtime these extra strain can damage kidney an lead to kidney disease. 
  • As this reduces kidney's ability to filter toxic waste products out of the body which gradually start building up in the body leading to kidney failure. 
  • Also, eating too much salt may mean that blood pressure medicines (such as diuretics) don't work as well as they could.

So spice up your life with salt. But cautiously.

Dhat Syndrome: Loss of Calcium in Urine

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Srinagar
Dhat Syndrome: Loss of Calcium in Urine

Many persons report to doctors complaining about weakness, backache, loss of energy and other vague symptoms attributing these all to the loss of calcium and sometime semen with urine. How do they get to this conclusion? They may have noticed ‘white discharge (particularly in morning sample) in urine, they leak few drops of white discharge while talking to women (talking over phone included) or thinking about them, their neighborhood ‘test wala’ (lab technician) report their urine containing a few calcium carbonate crystals (anyways its almost always same test wala or ‘medical wala’ (medical store owner) who orders their urinalysis in first instance), they suffer (as per them) from frequent night emissions associated with wet dreams or without wet dreams and so on (list is exhaustive).
This is precipitated and perpetuated by commonly held belief about extreme preciousness of semen in sub-continental cultures including ours. This is based on an old hindu belief that it takes forty drops of blood to create a drop of bone marrow and forty drops of bone marrow to create a drop of sperm (wikipedia). These persons usually spend good amount of resources for treatment of ‘calcium or semen loss’ without much success.
This is actually a neuro-asthenic syndrome first described by professor (dr) narendra wig as ‘dhat syndrome’.
Females also suffer from an equivalent syndrome characterized by excessive vaginal discharge or leucorrhea, which is again considered a" precicious fluid.
Reassurance and proper education is the mainstay of treatment. Many times counseling, anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications are needed.

Delayed periods can be because of number of reasons. PCO being one of them. Needs USG of pelvis. Clot details of last pregnancy needed. But that does not make a bad picture. Clot will not repeat in each pregnancy. Keep on trying and be positive.

My husband have early ejaculates oftenly and he filled bored every time, what to do.

MD Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mohali
My husband have early ejaculates oftenly and he filled bored every time, what to do.
Dear Ms. lybrate-user, From what you have mentioned, it seems that your husband might be suffering from premature ejaculation and that might be the reason, he would be showing disinterest. Premature ejaculation is a condition where the male partner ejaculates too soon, before either partner attains satisfaction. I can understand that this would be causing distress to both of you. The best way forward will be to meet a psychiatrist. Premature ejaculation is a treatable condition. Medications like paroxetine or dapoxetine will help in increasing the time to attain ejaculation. In addition, behaviour therapy sessions involving both husband and wife will help. Best wishes.

I am feeling depressed since last year then what type of thing I want to do to avoid it?
Dear Mr. lybrate-user, Feeling depressed for around one year is a long time and its prudent that you seek help now. You should get yourself evaluated by a psychiatrist and get yourself evaluated for depression. Treatment with medications and psychotherapy will help you recover. You should also talk regularly to someone close to vent out your feelings. Start doing some exercise on a daily basis. I do hope that you are able to get over your depression soon. Best wishes.

I feel pain in back side of my right leg from thigh to ankle. Which specialist I should consult.

Pain Management Specialist, Ahmedabad
I feel pain in back side of my right leg from thigh to ankle. Which specialist I should consult.
It's a radicular pain in your leg called sciatica. It's because of compression or impingement of nerve root in lumber spine, and because of compression you may feel tingling, pain or numbness in your whole leg. Start tablet pregabalin and analgesic for couple of weeks. Take rest for few weeks, restrict heavy loading work, and do physiotherapy under expert physiotherapist, and still pain persist then do some necessary investigation like dynamic xray, MRI LS SPINE or you may consult pain and spine specialist.
