Proteinuria May cause Rapid Deterioration of Diabetic NephropathyGood control of urinary protein is the top priority in the treatment of kidney diseases. To reduce proteinuria, besides lifestyle changes, drug treatment is essential. However, for Diabetic Nephropathy patients, once proteinuria presents, it indicates that the disease has been very serious, and the progression speed is gradually accelerated, and eventually into uremia and dialysis.

From the above, we can see that proteinuria treatment plays an important role in control the progression of Diabetic Nephropathy.

First of all, let’s see what is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a metabolic disease characterized by high blood sugar. Continuous hyperglycemia and metabolic disorders can lead to damage and failure of systemic tissues and organs, especially the eyes, kidneys, cardiovascular system and nervous system.

What is Diabetic Nephropathy?

Diabetic Nephropathy is glomerulosclerosis caused by high blood sugar level. Currently about 20%-30% of diabetics will develop kidney disease, and end stage Diabetic Nephropathy already accounts for more than 50% of the patients treated with dialysis.

Diabetes leads to Diabetic Nephropathy, Diabetic Nephropathy leads to renal failure, and renal failure continues to worsen to the end stage which is uremia. Diabetes is the cause, uremia is the fruit.

Stages of Diabetic Nephropathy

Ⅰ period (high glomerular filtration period), Ⅱ period (intermittent microalbuminuria), Ⅲ period (persistent microalbuminuria). The first three periods can be reversed. Once to Ⅳ period, a lot of proteinuria appears and glomerular filtration rate drop, and then the treatment is very passive. It is possible to lower blood pressure, control blood sugar level and reduce slight edema, but it becomes hard to reduce proteinuria and stop the rapid progression of the disease. The purpose of treatment at this time is to delay the development of the disease as much as possible so as to put off the time of uremia, because it is impossible to reverse the disease. If diabetic nephropathy is associated with other chronic complications of diabetes, such as diabetic cardiomyopathy, diabetic retinopathy, diabetic peripheral neuropathy and diabetic foot, the prognosis is worse.

Diabetic Nephropathy deteriorates rapidly only when proteinuria becomes massive. If you can control it well before the occurrence of proteinuria, you can have a good prognosis. Here are three ways to help control the disease well.

1. Prevention of diabetes: without diabetes, there is no such thing as diabetic nephropathy. Risk factors for diabetes include overweight, obesity, alcohol abuse and lack of exercise, etc. Lifestyle changes is helpful for the prevention of diabetes.

2. Prevention of Diabetic Nephropathy. If you have had diabetes, you should take comprehensive treatment (including lifestyle changes, or/and medicinal treatment) to prevent diabetes associated complications, such as diabetic nephropathy. The detailed treatment methods should follow your doctor’s advice. Do not stop or reduce medicine without the instruction of doctors.

3. Prevention of massive proteinuria. If you have had early stages of Diabetic Nephropathy, but do not have massive proteinuria, comprehensive management, healthy lifestyle, control of blood pressure and blood sugar level, and microalbuminuria treatment can help prevent massive proteinuria so as to avoid uremia.

Before diabetic nephropathy deteriorates into uremia, it will give us three chances, and the most critical one is the third, which is the last straw to prevent uremia. For more information on Diabetic Nephropathy treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
