Symptoms Of Patients With Diabetic Nephropathy

Symptoms Of Patients With Diabetic Nephropathy

Diabetic nephropathy is caused by diabetes. Diabetes can cause microangiopathy, and microangiopathy may lead to glomerular sclerosis. Diabetic nephropathy is the most severe and harmful complication of diabetes. For patients with diabetes, it is necessary for them to know the symptoms of diabetic nephropathy, so they can prevent it timely.


This is the first symptom of patients with diabetic nephropathy. At the beginning, patients may have intermittent proteinuria at the beginning, but it will be persistent in the later period. Patients may have small volume of proteinuria for years, and it is not easy to be realized. But the proteinuria in early stage can be tested out by lab test, and that is beneficial for controlling patients’ disease.


Diabetic nephropathy patients’ edema is mainly caused by proteinuria, so this symptom often appears in the late stage of diabetic nephropathy. Once patients have edema all around their body, it means the condition of patients’ nephropathy has been progressing persistently.


Hypertension is a common symptom of patients with diabetic nephropathy, and it often appears in the late stage of diabetic nephropathy. It is related to the changes of patients’ kidney structures, and another major cause of hypertension is the retention of sodium and fluid. Hypertension can aggravate patients’ condition and the nephrotic progression severely, so it is very important for patients to control this complication.


Anemia is often seen in patients who have obvious azotemia. It is caused by the decrease of erythropoietin, which is excreted by kidney, and patients with anemia often feel tired.

Abnormal renal function

Diabetic nephropathy is a progressive disease, and it will progress into azotemia and kidney failure in the end. However, the process between proteinuria and abnormal renal function is long. If patients condition is controlled well, abnormal renal function will not appear in many rears, but if patients’ condition is not well controlled, patients will have kidney insufficiency.

In the end, diabetic nephropathy is the most severe complication of diabetes, so patients are already in terrible condition when they get this disease. Thereby, patients with diabetes should care their kidneys, and take measures in time once they find they have any symptom of kidney disease.
