Diabetic Nephropathy (DN) is the most common renal complication of diabetes mellitus and a leading cause of end-stage renal disease. One of the most problems in people with kidney disease is diabetes and low bone mineral density (BMD). This can lead to a higher chance for broken bones, infection and life-long health problems. The most common reason for having low BMD is not getting enough vitamin D in your diet and not having enough sunlight. Actually, the central function of vitamin D is elevation of plasma calcium and phosphorate levels for bone health. Vitamin D supplementation for six months will result in significantly improved overall vitamin D status and on bone health in adult patients with diabetic nephropathy. What’s more, maintaining vitamin D at adequate levels can be a useful preventive technique, since vitamin D status in healthy adluts was inversely associated with further risk of type 2 diabetes.
In addition, in the kidney, vitamin D may be important for maintaining podocyte health, preventing epithelial-to-mesenchymal transformation, and suppressing renin gene expression and inflammation.
Through the above analysis, we can see vitamin D plays such an important role in patients with diabetic kidney disease. However, simply depending on vitamin D supplement is far away from stopping progression of kidney damage.
Hence, it is important to receive the medical treatments. In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital uses natural treatments to repair kidney damage and improve renal function, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy, Blood Pollution Therapy, Medicated Bath, and so on. All of them can help patients improve renal function without any side effects! To learn more detailed info, you can add my Whatsapp +8615076162199!
