What Are The common complications Of Diabetic Nephropathy

 What Are The common complications Of Diabetic NephropathyDiabetic nephropathy has high morbidity in patients with kidney disease, and it is the most severe complication of diabetes. As we know, kidney disease can often cause many symptoms to patient, and what are the common symptoms of diabetic nephropathy?


Proteinuria may be the first clinical symptom of diabetic nephropathy. Proteinuria is slight and intermittent at the beginning, and it is likely that patient does not realize he already has proteinuria for several years. But as the progression of patient’s disease, patient can have massive and continuous proteinuria, which can cause many obvious symptoms.


Edema is also an obvious symptom of patient with diabetic nephropathy, and massive proteinuria is the major cause of edema. And edema often indicates patient’s kidney disease has progressed into the late stage.


Hypertension is also a common symptom of diabetic nephropathy. Diabetic nephropathy is mainly caused by the damage in patient’s kidney structure, and it may also has close relationship with the retention of sodium and water. Hypertension is a complication of kidney damage, and it can aggravate patient’s kidney damage obviously, so it is important for patient to control his blood pressure.


Anemia is also very common in patient with diabetic nephropathy, and that can cause patient to always feel tired. Kidney has the function of excreting hormones, among which hemopoietin is important for the producing of red cells. When patient has severe kidney damage, that will damage the excretion of hemopoietin, so the producing of red cells will also reduce.

Renal insufficiency

Patient may not have renal insufficiency for many years after he has proteinuria, but if patient has not controlled his disease well, renal insufficiency can appear much sooner.

These are the common complications of diabetic nephropathy, and as patient’s kidney damage becomes severer, more complications that are related to kidney damage will appear.
