I am suffering from diabetes for past 10 years. Also I have BP and heart disease. Now am admitted in hospital coz my left legs are swollen and some bad bubbles spreading across my legs till thigh. Please suggest or prescribe how can I release from that. Does removing of leg causes me to live longer.
I am type 2 diabetic patient and have been diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy in 2015. I was having symptoms of Protein leakage in Urine during the diagnosis of IGA Nephropathy and Doctor had advised medicine. After undergoing medicine for one year, protein leakage came under normal. From last 3 months, Again I am leaking more protein in urine and doctor has advised for kidney biopsy again. Need Opinion on my issue and suggestions needed. Could this due to IGA nephropathy or diabetes.
The available evidence suggests that all adults with high blood pressure readings that are consistently greater than 135/80 mm Hg benefit from tighter control of risk factors associated with diabetes for prevention of coronary heart disease.
My mother's age is 75 years and her HbA1C is 5.8 % and her fasting blood glucose is 82 so request you to please confirm whether is she pre-diabetic or not?
I am 37 years female. Height 5.3. Weight was touching 59. Now weight is 56. I have been detected with hypothyroid but after medication it has come to normal. And also detected with bad cholesterol. For that I am having one tablespoon of flax seed grinded with hot milk daily. My hair fall has not stopped. Doctor gave herbolax capsules to have for 3 months and continue thynorm tab for 3 months. Thyroid is normal but hair fall is there. I have stopped having herbolax capsules because I noticed more hair fall happening because of that I think. Please advice.
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
