Can Diabetic Nephropathy Patients Drink Alcohol

Can Diabetic Nephropathy Patients Drink AlcoholIs alcohol safe for diabetics who have kidney disease? Our online doctor has been asked many times by patients with Diabetic Nephropathy. If you or your family members have suffered from diabetes for long time and kidneys are involved in diabetes, I believe you are interested about the following information.

As we know, the first step of treatments for diabetics with kidney disease is to control their blood sugar. Then, the diet plan should be changed to protect their remaining kidney function and prevent or ease Diabetic Nephropathy complications.

No clinical research has proven that Diabetic Nephropathy patients can’t drink any alcohol, but it does cause a serious of problems if these patients drink excessive alcohol. ( Check with online Doctor to make sure alcohol doesn’t interfere with your medical condition and how much alcohol you can drink safely.)

Here, we have several questions that should be answered before you drink alcohol.

- Is your blood sugar under control?

- Do you have high blood pressure or diabetic nerve damage?

- Are you on insulin, or certain oral diabetes medications.

If your blood sugar isn’t controlled very well, drinking moderate amounts of alcohol can cause your blood sugar to increase, and excessive alcohol can decline your blood sugar to a dangerous level. What’s worse, in addition to blood sugar, alcohol may also affects many other conditions such as:

- Alcohol can stimulate patients’ appetite that may cause patients to overeat and worsen the control of blood sugar easily.

- Alcohol can affect the effects of insulin and oral diabetes medications.

- Nearly all Diabetic Nephropathy patients have high blood pressure, while alcohol can lead their blood pressure to rise further.

- Alcohol is also able to trigger nausea, vomiting, increased heart beat, etc.

From the above analysis, we can know drinking extra alcohol may even cause life-threatening complications for patients with Diabetic Nephropathy. To guarantee your safety and health, pay highly attention to your drinking amount.
