Diabetes Kidney Care
If you’re facing diabetes, then it becomes important for you to take care of the kidney. Diabetic kidney disease is a disease that causes due to diabetes and it is called the term “Diabetic Nephropathy”. Type -1 and Type-2 diabetes are the most common cause of kidney diseases. Diabetic kidney diseases are also called DKD, chronic kidney diseases, CKD, kidney diseases of diabetes, or diabetic nephropathy.
About 1 out of 3 people develop kidney problems when facing diabetes. When you’re facing diabetic nephropathy then it disturbs the kidney’s ability to work in the removal of waste products and extra fluid from the body. If not treated, the condition will slowly damage the kidney’s filtering system.
GFR means glomerular filtration stage that measures the level of kidney function and damage. The doctor can calculate it through the results of blood creatinine test, age, body diseases, and gender. The GFR number will indicate that how much your kidney function. As the GFR number goes down in number, the worst is kidney disease.
There are 5 stages of Diabetic Kidney disease:
|Stage 1||Kidney Damage with normal kidney function||90 or higher|
|Stage 2||Kidney damage with mild loss of kidney function||89 to 60|
|Stage 3 A||Mild to moderate loss of kidney function||59 to 45|
|Stage 3 B||Moderate to severe kidney function||44 to 30|
|Stage 4||Severe loss of kidney function||29 to 15|
|Stage 5||Kidney Failure||Less than 15|
If treated early, it can delay or prevent the onset of diabetic nephropathy. The goal of providing the treatment is to maintain blood sugar and glucose level in the body which sometimes involves the intake of medication. There are various ways doctors provide the treatment depending upon the condition and severity of the patient:
- Drug treatment – Medications such as angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) Inhibitors or Angiotension receptor blockers (ACB) helps in lowering blood pressure, sugar level, protect kidney function.
- Dietary changes – If a person has kidney diseases, the doctor will ask you to make some dietary changes and add nutrients such as sodium, protein, phosphorous, and potassium.
- If diabetic neuropathy gets into a critical stage, then the patient would need either dialysis or a kidney transplant. The process of dialysis is a life-long process, and can only be stopped by a kidney transplant.
Kidney dialysis is a procedure in which a machine is used to separate waste products from the body and remove them from blood. The process of dialysis acts as a healthy kidney. There are various type of dialysis –
- Hemodialysis – In this type, the blood leaves the body when a needle is inserted and then passes through a tube to a dialysis machine. The blood is filtered in the machine and blood gets to return back to the body and tube.
- Peritoneal dialysis – This method uses the lining of the abdomen or peritoneum (a membrane that forms the lining of the abdominal cavity or coelom in amniotes) fluid to enter through a catheter. The fluid enters the body and filters the waste products before draining them out. The draining process will take 30-40 minutes.
The doctor may recommend a kidney transplant, at a final stage and if a suitable donor can provide you with a kidney. Sometimes, people donate their kidneys to their loved ones and you can live your life with one kidney. And it is said that the transplant from the family member has the best chances of accepting the kidney to the patient.
The person accepting the kidney transplant will need to take medication to reduce the risk of the body rejecting the kidney. One of the side effects patients get after the completion of a kidney transplant is a risk of infection.
