Five major hazards of diabetic nephropathy

Jun 25, 2017

Diabetic nephropathy is one of the most important complications of diabetes mellitus. The incidence of this disease is on the rise, which has now become the second leading cause of end-stage renal disease, second only to different kinds of glomerulonephritis. Because of the complicated metabolic disorder, it is more difficult to treat the end-stage renal disease than the other renal diseases. Therefore, timely prevention and treatment is of great significance for delaying diabetic nephropathy.
1. glomerulosclerosis
There are tens of thousands of glomeruli in human kidney, glomerular has the filtration function of urine. Diabetic nephropathy can induce glomerular hardening phenomenon in patients, then the patient's waste is not excreted, finally lead to uremia. Uremia is relatively high incidence and severe complications in the urinary system of diabetes patients, the longer onset time of diabetic nephropathy, the higher incidence of glomerular sclerosis.
2. bladder weakness
If the condition of diabetic nephropathy is not well controlled, dysfunction of the muscles that control the contraction of the bladder can result from malfunction of the local nerve. Then the urine can not be cleaned out, and the urine is stored. Bacteria are easily propagated in the urine stored in the bladder, causing cystitis. Because it is a chronic disease, patients are often difficult to detect, and therefore need to regularly check the urine of patients with diabetic nephropathy, when chronic inflammation was found, patients should cooperate closely with the doctor, in order to avoid improper treatment.
3. cystitis, pyelonephritis
Diabetic nephropathy patients with poor controllment, due to the decline of phagocytosis of white blood cells on bacteria, the resistance to bacterial invasion is poor, so patients are prone to cystitis. If the bacteria spread up from the bladder, or through the blood circulation to the kidneys, may cause bacterial infection of the kidney, the common seen is pyelonephritis. In diabetic nephropathy, female patients are more susceptible to the disease because of their physiological structures.
4. nerve damage
Diabetic nephropathy will cause some neurological diseases complications, often manifested as limb numbness, burning or tingling feeling cold, similar to the spiritual paralysis; people with serious case may suffer from insomnia, nerve excitement, making it difficult to fall asleep; plant neuropathy is often shown as abdominal distension, constipation, dysuria, slow heartbeat and other symptoms, harm neurological.
5. eye damage
In patients with diabetic nephropathy due to high blood glucose concentration, prone to high blood pressure, and even evolve high pressure in the eye, resulting in cataract or other eye disease, it will lead to blurred eyesight of patients gradually, decreased visual acuity, people with serious case will lose their sight.
In summary, diabetic nephropathy caused great threat to human health, not only hypertension, high blood sugar can afflict patients, but also harm nerve, eye and others, so patients need to recuperate from many aspects in life, eat more fruits and vegetables, take light sports, pay attention to blood sugar intake, develop good habits, alleviate the disease.
