Kidneys and Kidney Diseases
The kidneys are organs which aim to filter out huge amounts of blood to produce 1-2 quarts of urine. They also perform the task of filtering out the excessive waste materials from the blood stream. However, there can be cases when infection enters your bloodstream and affects your kidneys. This can cause serious kidney diseases such as cysts, stones and cancer.
Diabetes is a condition which is caused when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin (Type 1 Diabetes) or when your body doesn't react to the insulin in a normal way (Type 2 Diabetes). The sugar in your food cannot be broken down effectively which can result in problems in your kidneys. The glucose content in your blood causes considerable damage to the filters in your kidneys.
When the filters in the kidney are damaged, a particular protein called albumin releases into your blood and your urine. The damage in the kidneys can affect the kidney function and obstruct the filtering out of wastes from the blood. Thus, diabetes could be attributed as a major cause of kidney disease.
Managing Diabetes - Managing diabetes is crucial to avoid kidney diseases. However, diabetes doesn t have a proper cure which is why it is even more important to take care of your health in such cases.
Here are a few ways in which diabetic patients can aim to be healthy and prevent kidney diseases:
Quit Smoking: Smoking increases diabetic complications such as nerve damage and heart strokes which can in-turn affect your kidneys functions adversely. Hence, it is advisable to quit smoking to keep diabetes under control.
Healthy Meals: Opt for healthy meals which are balanced and packed with nutrients as they help in increasing the insulin function in your body. Foods such as green leafy vegetables, legumes, fruits and lean meat should be included in your meals.
Engage in Physical Exercise: A diabetic person needs to engage in physical exercise in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Obesity can increase your chances of complications and can be detrimental to your kidneys as well.
I am 61 years old, having normal good health, and so far do not need any medication for blood sugar or pressure. For last one month or so I am getting mild pain and stiffness in the finger joints of both of my hands when I get up from sleep. It becomes OK later on. Why is it so? Do I have arthritis?

Diabetes patients need regular blood glucose check specially if glucose levels are fluctuating.But practically it is inconvenient to use glucometer every time and everywhere.Pricking multiple times is painful.Sometime glucometer shows error-blood sample is too less,battery is low,glucometer strip is not properly inserted requiring another test adding to frustration and cost of glucose monitoring.There is a solution to it- CGMS (continuous glucose monitoring sensor) technology.Here are FAQ on this technique.
Q- What is CGMS?
Ans- CGMS is a sensor based technique where glucose is checked every 15 minutes by the sensor avoiding multiple needle pricks.
Q-Where is sensor put?
Ans- Sensor is put into skin mostly at back of arm.
Q-Is it painful?
Ans-It is one time prick with automatic machine and pain is less than finger needle prick.
Q-How it works?
Ans-It measures and records glucose data every 15 minutes.That sensor data is captured by Bluetooth technology and studied on mobile like instrument or can be downloaded on computer in the form of graphs.
Q-Can I take bath while sensor is attached on the skin?
Ans- yes it is water proof.
Q-How long it works?
Ans- It works for 2 weeks
Q-Is it costly?
Ans- No.It records more than 1000 reading which if measured by glucometer will cost much more than CGMS.
Ask your diabetologist about it if it suits your requirement.
