3 Tips to Prevent Diabetic Nephropathy from Progressing to UremiaDiabetes is not only the leading cause of kidney disease, but also kidney failure. Diabetes and kidney disease affect each other, so with high blood sugar level, you should do regular checkups for kidney function.

Although diabetes is more likely than other diseases to cause kidney failure, it is not uncontrollable. To avoid the development of Diabetic Nephropathy into uremia, the following three things should be done well.

1. To control blood glucose level stable for long term, and protect renal function

Diabetic nephropathy is not a sudden disease and patients who have a history of more than 10 years are more likely to develop kidney damage. And the catalyst to accelerate kidney failure is chronically high blood sugar. To control blood glucose stability, kidney patients should stick to a low-salt, low-sugar and low-fat diet, attach importance to the combined application of metformin and other glucose-lowering drugs, and pay attention to the prevention and treatment of other complications such as hypertension and hyperlipidemia, which will also affect the stability of blood glucose.

High blood sugar can affect blood flow in the kidney, leading to glomerulosclerosis and renal fibrosis, thereby, to avoid uremia and delay the progression of renal function, controlling blood sugar is the key.

2. To attach importance to the control of proteinuria, and reduce kidney damage

In early stage of diabetic nephropathy, microalbuminuria can be found. But the amount is so low that it has little effect on kidney function. If patients can not control blood sugar level well in early stage, kidney function will get worse, and microalbuminuria will become massive proteinuria. At this time, proteinuria can impair kidneys. To avoid kidney damage, it is better to bring proteinuria under 1g. And three aspects should be combined to reduce proteinuria: Keeping on taking hormones, immunosuppressive drugs and other drugs to inhibit renal inflammation, which is beneficial to lowering proteinuria; adhering to low amount of high-quality protein diet to alleviate symptoms such as hypoproteinemia and edema, which is conducive to proteinuria control; Adhere to the observation of urine and measurement of proteinuria, which can help develop the best treatment program.

3. To keep blood pressure steady for a long time

Most patients with a long history of diabetes have high blood pressure, and high blood pressure is also the main culprit for impaired renal function, so Diabetic Nephropathy patients must prevent and treat it. Long-term maintenance of blood pressure level below 130/80 is more conducive to the protection of renal function. Therefore, patients should regularly monitor blood sugar and take anti-hypertensive medication, which should not be taken lightly.
