Kidney Failure And Diabetes: Are They Inheritable

Kidney Failure And Diabetes: Are They InheritableBoth diabetes and kidney failure can cause severe problems to patient’s health, which can cause huge financial burden to patient’s family. And are these diseases inheritable?

Diabetes and kidney failure are two different diseases, but they can have close relation, because diabetes can cause patient to have diabetic nephropathy, which can also cause kidney failure. In fact, the ratio of diabetic nephropathy is high among patients with kidney disease.

Is diabetes inheritable?

Diabetes has hereditary character, but it does not propagate diabetes, and it just propagates inherited tendency.

Inherited tendency means patient is more likely to get diabetes when he is in the circumstance that can cause diabetes. In fact, diabetes is the result of genetic factor and environmental factor. Inherited tendency can make patient get diabetes more easily, but just inherited tendency can not cause diabetes, and the effect of environmental factor is needed so that patient can get diabetes. And inherited factor leads to family aggregation.

Is kidney failure inheritable?

Kidney failure is mainly affected by acquired disposition, which means patient is more likely to get it due to his life habits.

In fact, many kidney diseases can cause patient to have kidney failure, but in most cases, they are not inheritable, and genetic factor can make little influence in the formation of kidney failure. On the other hand, kidney failure caused by some kidney diseases do have the characteristic of heredity, like polycystic kidney disease, hereditary nephritis, etc.

As we know, diabetes can cause diabetic nephropathy, and it can also cause patient to have kidney failure. While this kind of kidney failure just as diabetes, it has inherited tendency, but patient won’t get this disease directly.

These are the points about whether kidney failure and diabetes are inheritable. And if have another problem in dealing with these aspects, you can just leave us a message about your question, and we will give you a detailed reply timely.
