Diabetic Nephropathy - Who is at Risk of Acquiring it?

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Nephrology

Diabetic Nephropathy - Who is at Risk of Acquiring it?

Diabetes is a lifestyle disease that is very prevalent in the current generation. According to a report by the World Health Organisation (WHO), the number of people with diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. The global prevalence of diabetes among adults over 18 years of age has risen from 4.7% to 8.5% from 1980 to 2014. Diabetes should not be taken lightly as it can affect other body organs besides the pancreas, such as the kidneys. Diabetic nephropathy refers to damage to your kidneys caused by diabetes, and may also lead to kidney failure in various cases.

Causes of diabetic nephropathy
Not everyone who suffers from diabetes will suffer from diabetic nephropathy. The main function of the kidneys is to filter waste from your blood. However, this is not always the case. Due to high a concentration of blood sugar caused by diabetes, several blood vessels in the kidney are destroyed, thereby, preventing the kidneys from carrying out its job. Over time, the kidneys may stop working altogether, resulting in kidney failure. If you are diabetic, the probability of you suffering from diabetic nephropathy will increase if you smoke or have high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

Catching it early
Today, diabetic nephropathy is the leading cause of chronic kidney disease in the US and other western countries. Since the symptoms of this condition aren’t visible in its early stages, you need to undergo urine tests on a regular basis. If detected early, the effects of diabetic nephropathy can be reversed. Common symptoms of this disease include the following:

  • Swelling in legs and feet
  • Detection of albumin in urine
  • Decline in glomerular filtration rate (GFR)
  • Elevated arterial blood pressure

What are the treatment options?
Medication to lower the blood pressure is the most commonly prescribed form of treatment suggested by doctors to prevent or slow the damage to your kidneys. There are other lifestyle changes that you may have to undertake in order to keep a check on the condition:

  • Limit sugar intake and keep blood sugar levels within the target range
  • Exercise regularly and work towards keeping your heart healthy
  • Limit protein intake, as it could put extra pressure on your kidneys
  • Limit salt intake to control blood pressure
  • Quit smoking and drinking

Diabetes is an unfortunate condition to have to live with. But don’t let it bog you down! With these simple lifestyle changes and taking care of your general well-being, you can beat the disease and emerge a winner!

Infertility - 4 Highly Effective Ayurvedic Treatments

MD - Ayurveda, Fellowship in Cardiac Rehabilitation, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Yoga Instructors Certificate
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Infertility - 4 Highly Effective Ayurvedic Treatments

Ayurveda takes an all encompassing perspective about health and regards the overall body rather than an individual sickness. When you consult an Ayurvedic doctor, he'll put forth numerous inquiries before diagnosing you. Once the doctor is sure of what afflicts your body, only then he will treat you!

The fundamental center of Ayurvedic treatment for fruitlessness is to guarantee the correct change of food into supplements that can move to the 'shukra dhatu'. Portions of the utilized treatment for fruitlessness as a part of Ayurveda are:

  1. Swedanam: Ayurvedic doctors utilize this strategy to incite sweating in patients experiencing barrenness with the assistance of overwhelming covers or activities. This is done to flush poisons out of the body.

  2. Vamanam: This is to some degree uncomfortable in any case detoxing Ayurvedic treatment prompts to free the body of undigested food.

  3. Banyan Tree Bark: Numerous Ayurvedic doctors recommend the utilization of dried banyan tree husk powder, blended with sugar, to treat barrenness issues.

  4. Medicated Ghee: This is an Ayurvedic pharmaceutical to treat female fruitlessness. Devoured as melted margarine blended with milk, this drug is touted to treat utilitarian issues however, does not treat basic inadequacies.

Eating routine To Tackle Infertility:

As per Ayurveda, a person managing fruitlessness needs to follow a strict eating regimen. Aside from keeping away from fried and unreasonably salty food, Ayurveda prescribes incorporating the accompanying foods in a patient’s diet:

  1. Almonds

  2. New Vegetables

  3. Entire Grains

  4. Dairy items, for example, milk

  5. New Fruits

  6. Dried Fruits

Every one of these foods give nourishment to the shukra dhatu, which can help in treating infertility.

Hypothyroidism is due poor function of thyroid gland. Hence only remedy is replicating that hormone thyroxine. There are no herbal remedies. Thyroxine is an essential hormone hence has to be supplemented.

Which items are not eatable for diabetes patients?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Hello your question is very general, as such for a diabetic person for his regular nutrition all types of foods are required in a limited quantity within dietary allowance provided. Certain foods which if taken in good quantity are bad like deep fried items (both vegetarian & non veg), direct sweets and fruits like mangoes, grapes and chikkoo. I am sure doctor must have told what diet in terms of calories and types of food you should consume to manage your blood sugar in the desired range.

If your tsh levels are normal now, you have to concentrate on doing regular exercise for more than 1 hour daily. Brisk walking could be a good one or if you can join a gym do that and exercise under instructions. Secondly reduce your food intake by at least 20 % of whatever you are taking now. This schedule has to be followed meticulously. You can aim at reducing about 2 kg per month. Eat a balanced diet, avoid sweets, sugar, deep fried foods, if non vegetarian avoid red meat. Take more green salads. Hypothyroidism is a condition which has no cure except taking thyroxine tabs for life.

How to put control our sugar level when insulin is not taken properly in a day or weak.
How to control hunger if food is not taken in a day or week. Sorry if I hurt your sentiments. But its just a way to explain this. Just as we can not curb hunger without eating, similarly we can not control sugars without insulin. Please understand and respect your body just as you understand your basic needs. Regards.

High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time.

My uric acid levels are 6.3. How can I reduce this?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

How type 2 diabetes is different from type 1 diabetes?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
How type 2 diabetes is different from type 1 diabetes?
T1 diabetes usually occurs in young age group. It is an autoimmune disorder, where anti bodies against beta cells of pancreas are produced affecting their function and insulin production is almost totally stopped. This can only be treated by insulin injection. No oral drugs work. T2 is usually occurs in comparatively older age group. Now a days seen even in teen age and young adults. Occurs because there is lack of insulin secretion or resistance to the action of insulin or both. Reasons for t2dm are said to be over weight, apple shaped body in men and pear shaped in women, lack of physical activity, family history of diabetes, migration to bigger cities, to metros etc. This is a preventable disease. Can be controlled by oral anti diabetic drugs as well as insulin.

Dear, you are much prone to develop diabetes. So it is advisable to check your fbs and ppbs regularly once a year if it is normal. Take care in diet and do regular exercise and note the change in weight. Don't be obese. Restrict sweet, oily, fast and junk food and cold drinks also.
