Diabetic Nephropathy - What To Do About It?

Diabetic Nephropathy - What To Do About It?

Diabetic nephropathy refers to kidney damage caused by diabetes. Though this does not affect all diabetics; if left unchecked, it could cause kidney failure. In fact, this is one of the leading causes of chronic kidney disease and long-term kidney complications.

Diabetic nephropathy is marked by the destruction of blood vessels inside the kidneys. This is caused by high blood sugar concentration in the individual’s blood. Smokers and people suffering from cholesterol and hypertension are at a higher risk of suffering from this disease. If noticed early enough, this condition can be reversed and permanent kidney damage can be prevented. However, the disease does not have any noticeable symptoms in its early stages. As the kidney function deteriorates, patients may begin to experience swelling in the legs and feet. Some of the other symptoms patients may experience include loss of appetite, sudden weight loss, nausea, insomnia and weakness.

To diagnose this condition, doctors must rely on urine tests known as albumin urine tests. What they will be looking for is the presence of a protein known as albumin in the urine. The presence of this protein indicates that the kidneys are unable to filter blood properly and hence are damaged. This test is usually advised to be taken once every year. In addition, it is also advisable to have a creatinine test every year to check how well your kidneys are functioning. Regular check up of diabetes blood test, eye check up for Diabetic Retinopathy is also done for knowing the damage in kidney as cell of retina and kidney are same.

 

Treatment for this condition focuses on lowering the patient’s blood pressure and reducing damage to the kidneys. This can be done by a combination of Angiotensin II receptor blockers and ACE inhibitors or Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors. Patients may need additional medication to resolve accompanying cholesterol issues. NSAIDS such as ibuprofen should be avoided as they can stress the kidneys and cause further damage. In addition, it is also essential to bring the patient’s blood sugar levels under control. Limiting the protein intake and increase the intake fresh fruit and vegetable consumption can also help treat this condition. Patients should also limit their salt intake.

Diabetic Nephropathy can be prevented. The best way to do this is by eating a healthy, well-balanced diet and taking your blood sugar medication regularly. As long as your blood sugar is stable and your blood pressure does not increase too much, you will have a low risk of diabetic nephropathy. Maintaining a healthy weight with the help of regular exercise can also help prevent this condition.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Urinary Infection - Ways It Can Be Treated!

UTI, as urinary tract infections are often referred to, is one of the most common infections. In women, especially, every 1 in 2 women is affected by an UTI. The urinary tract starts from the kidneys to the urethra where urine is passed out. Given the rich concentration of minerals and toxic wastes, it is highly prone to multiple infections. Whichever part of the tract is affected, the symptoms and treatment are mostly the same.

Read on to know some of the most common symptoms and treatment options for these.

Symptoms

  1. A burning sensation with urination
  2. Pain with urination
  3. Burning sensation or pain in the urethra or vagina
  4. Frequent urge to urinate, though not much urine is passed out
  5. Sense of incomplete emptying of the bladder
  6. Pain in the lower back on the sides of the spine
  7. Change in the urine characteristics color, smell, or appearance

Causes

Most urinary tract infections are bacterial in nature, and these could find their way into the body through multiple ways. The most common is through the urethra, which could happen due to unclean toilet habits.
Women especially are advised to wipe the urethra after each toilet visit. The bacteria from the feces can also enter the urethra due to close proximity. Use of unclean public toilets is another reason for UTIs

Treatment:

UTIs are very common infections and though there is nothing to worry, it should be cleared completely.

  1. Antibiotic course to get rid of the infection. Though you begin to feel better, the complete course should be completed to clear the infection.
  2. Following culture testing to ensure the infection is cleared
  3. Improve water intake to get rid of the toxins
  4. Fever and pain to be controlled with medications
  5. Healthy hygiene habits to ensure clearing of infection

Follow up is needed with the Physician or the Nephrologist while having medication or there are chances of recurrent UTI.  The treatment for recurrent UTI can go for more than 3-8 weeks.

Prevention:

Recurrent UTIs is a common problem, and the following can help prevent.

  1. Ensure complete emptying of the bladder
  2. Drink adequate water
  3. Safe toilet habits, including before and after sex
  4. Comfortable and clean underwear to prevent infection. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

lybrate-user If your uncle kidney have stop working than dialysis is option for time being. In case of acute factor on chronic kidney disease than dialysis may stop in few patients but full recovery in CKD stage 2 is not possible. If kidney is chronic damage stage 4-5 than would be needing dialysis 2-3 times / week.

lybrate-user As you have 5-7 mm stone it can be removed by lithotripsy. Better than surgery. It depends upon the place or site in kidney where stone are present sometimes can do both kidney together. Cost depends from hospital to hospital. But it's reasonable. Can try Apollo Spectra hospital It's different from Apollo hospital.

Hi, On Dialysis .Having bp. Thyroid. Tests done for potassium phosphorus it's high HB is 7 Creatinine after Dialysis not coming down it's 10 now Twice Dialysis in a week.Please suggest me something.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Nephrologist, Noida
lybrate-user As your kidneys are not working you have waste product made by body in blood, which is now cleaned by dialysis by filter. As everyday waste product is made cleaning of blood needed regularly. Scientifically thrice dialysis per week can maintain body. So creatinine once comes down on dialysis but the minute it's stopped waste starts accumulating again. It's regular process.

Mr. lybrate-user If you have these symptoms, you should consult a nephrologist for proteinurea, which may be due to kidney damage. Don't neglect small amount of protein leak in urine.

I have 12 mm left kidney stone, Dr. tell me laser operation. Please advise some natural way get it off the body.
Mr. lybrate-user 12 mm stone is big in size, if it descend down can block the urine pipe called ureter causing pain and lot of bleeding. Once kidney gets block and urine can't pass then it back flows in kidney in end destroying kidney cell. So it's recommended to get laser treatment done were they will break the stone in small sediment or pieces which can pass easily or urine pipe.

Kidney And Its Functions!

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Nephrologist, Noida
Kidney And Its Functions!

The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs that extract waste from blood, balance body fluids, form urine, and aid in other important functions of the body. They reside against the back muscles in the upper abdominal cavity. They sit opposite each other on either side of the spine.

When it comes to components of the urinary system, the kidneys are multi-functional. Some of the core actions of the kidneys include:

  • Waste excretion: There are many things your body doesn’t want inside of it. The kidneys filter out toxins, excess salts, and urea, a nitrogen-based waste created by cell metabolism. Urea is synthesized in the liver and transported through the blood to the kidneys for removal.
  • Water level balancing: As the kidneys are key in the chemical breakdown of urine, they react to changes in the body’s water level throughout the day. As water intake decreases, the kidneys adjust accordingly and leave water in the body instead of helping excrete it.
  • Blood pressure regulation: The kidneys need constant pressure to filter the blood. When it drops too low, the kidneys increase the pressure. One way is by producing a blood vessel-constricting protein (angiotensin) that also signals the body to retain sodium and water. Both the constriction and retention help restore normal blood pressure.
  • Red blood cell regulation: When the kidneys don’t get enough oxygen, they send out a distress call in the form of erythropoietin, a hormone that stimulates the bone marrow to produce more oxygen-carrying red blood cells.
  • Acid regulation: As cells metabolize, they produce acids. Foods we eat can either increase the acid in our body or neutralize it. If the body is to function properly, it needs to keep a healthy balance of these chemicals. The kidneys do that, too.

Hi lybrate-user. Kidney stones are different, gall stones if not causing any symptoms can be left, if they are causing problem and are too many in numbers it's better to get them removed.

lybrate-user, Sometimes due to surgery and dye given creatinine level increases, have a watch on this level if it's decreases no need of dialysis and if it's increasing and he has symptoms like blanching breathlessness, bradycardia, hyperkalemia, etc he would be requiring dialysis. No such side effects of it, just make sure you get it done from good dialysis centre where infection rates are less and nephrologist is available all the time to look after.

Hi lybrate-user, To be definite that you have stone in urine passage means in ureter or bladder you need investigation like ultrasound or more definitive is CT urogram. The stone which passes from urine you should send them to lab for analysis to know which type of stones are they. After both reports nephrologist can suggest some solutions.
