If uncontrolled effectively, diabetes may attack kidneys easily. If both kidneys are failed due to diabetes, renal replacement therapy or renal repairing therapy may be needed to maintain diabetics’ life. Figure out what to do next with diabetic kidney disease.
Chronic Kidney Failure for diabetics
High blood sugar will damage capillaries easily, while kidney filters consist of capillaries. When kidney filters are damaged, glomerular filtration rate (GFR) declines gradually, resulting in Chronic Kidney Failure. In mild or moderate cases, some treatments can still help save failed kidneys. However, in severe cases, what we can do is to prevent patients’ illness condition from worsening and life-threatening complications.
Treatments for diabetics with failed kidneys
The following are some treatment options. If you have this problem and want to know which therapy is suitable for you, you can consult the doctor online or leave your question to firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. Oral medicines: In clinic, many medicines, both western medicines and Chinese medicines, are taken to control diabetic kidney disease. Some are used to lower high blood sugar, while some others are taken to slow down the progress of diabetic kidney disease.
2. Dialysis: Patients with diabetic kidney disease is usually recommended to begin dialysis earlier than patients with other types of kidney diseases. Dialysis can help impaired kidneys to cleanse the blood, but it can’t do anything to damaged kidneys.
3. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: This therapy can help prompt the regeneration of pancreatic cells for reducing high blood sugar level. It is also one renal repairing therapy that is able to rebuild kidney structure, but it needs a relatively long time to work, so diabetics should be more patient.
If kidney disease is due to diabetes, kidneys may fail quite quickly. If untreated timely, patients may have to do dialysis or kidney transplant. If you have diabetic kidney disease and avoid kidney failure, you should take prompt treatment to protect your kidneys.
