Does obesity cause uremia

Dec 30, 2016
In 1997, WHO (WHO) announced that obesity is a disease. At present, the world body mass index (BMI), that is, body weight (kg) / height 2 (M2) as a diagnostic indicator of obesity. In 2002, according to the survey data of Chinese population, the working group of obesity in China put forward the diagnostic criteria of our country, BMI24.02 ~ 27.9kg/m2 was overweight. More than 28kg/m2 of male obesity; waist circumference is more than 85CM, female waist circumference is more than 80cm limit accumulation of abdominal fat.

Obesity can cause kidney disease. Obesity is associated with a class of diseases such as obesity induced glomerular hypertrophy or renal changes associated with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. According to the pathological characteristics of the light microscope showed simple glomerular hypertrophy, known as obesity related glomerular hypertrophy, glomerular hypertrophy and the focal segmental glomerulosclerosis is called obesity related focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. The first clinical symptom of obesity associated nephropathy is microalbuminuria, and the urine protein can gradually increase to a large number of proteinuria, some of which may be associated with glomerular hematuria. Obesity related glomerulopathy is usually associated with microalbuminuria and proteinuria, and obesity associated focal segmental glomerulosclerosis is often expressed as a moderate to significant proteinuria. The general situation of blood in patients with obesity related glomerular hypertrophy were more in the normal range, obesity related focal segmental glomerular sclerosis in patients with serum creatinine can be gradually increased, and slow progress, which could eventually lead to uremia. Therefore, obesity, if not controlled, will cause obesity related nephropathy, and ultimately cause uremia. Weight control is the key to improve and alleviate obesity related nephropathy.
