Why Does Hyperglycemia Occur After Kidney TransplantationAfter kidney transplant, it is not an end to your disease, because a lot of side effects may present due to the long-term application of immunosuppressants. Why does hyperglycemia occur after kidney transplantation? Read on to learn more information.

There are mainly the following reasons:

The first is related to drugs: glucocorticoids, such as methylprednisolone and prednisone, which are commonly used in every kidney transplant patient, can cause blood sugar to rise and become steroid-induced diabetes. The other drugs are tacrolimus and cyclosporine, especially tacrolimus (also known as FK506). About 10% of transplant recipients develop new diabetes mellitus after taking tacrolimus, while the side effects of cyclosporine are relatively mild. Other immunosuppressants such as sirolimus and mycophenolate mofetil have no such side effects.

Another reason is that many people have improved appetite and weight gain after kidney transplantation, while some patients have less physical exercise, which also increases the risk of diabetes. Moreover, others have family genetic background. They do not show diabetes without using immunosuppressive agents, but have abnormal blood sugar when using some drugs that have an impact on blood sugar, and in severe cases, diabetes mellitus can occur. Therefore, the occurrence of diabetes after kidney transplantation is caused by a variety of factors, not entirely by a single factor.

High blood sugar level can cause kidney damage, so attention should be paid.

Long-term high blood sugar level can put extra stress on kidneys, which can impair kidney function. And currently diabetes is the leading cause of chronic kidney disease and kidney failure. Once you find your blood sugar level increases, you should take measures to lower it as early as possible.

Since kidney transplant has so many side effects, why not try alternatives?

In our hospital, if your kidney damage is not that severe, you can try Toxin-Removing Treatment. This treatment is a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which makes use of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Navel Therapy and so on to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body via urine, sweat and bowel movement. It can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, it can reduce renal inflammation and halt the progression of kidney disease.

After a short period of treatment, symptoms such as weakness, proteinuria, hematuria, high blood pressure and so on will get relieved greatly. After a long period of treatment, your kidney disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved.

Our Treatment effect

Proteinuria is a common symptom of kidney disease

It can make your urine foamy. Although it does not make you feel uncomfortable, it can impair your renal function and make your kidney disease worse. Conventional treatment such as steroids and immunosuppressants can hardly make it negative. In our hospital, systemic Chinese medicine treatment can help you turn it negative. Look at this picture, bubbles in urine become less and less with our treatment going on.
