Proteinuria is the principal feature of Diabetic Nephropathy. For patients with Diabetic Nephropathy, there is only microalbuminuria in the early stage, and with the progression of illness, there is large amounts of protein. What causes proteinuria in Diabetic Nephropathy? How to deal with proteinuria? I will explain these questions in the following.
What causes proteinuria in Diabetic Nephropathy
As we all know, Diabetic Nephropathy is due to longstanding diabetes. Exposure to high blood sugar and high blood pressure for a long time will lead to nephron necrosis. The development of nephron from intact nephron to necrosis nephron is a procession of renal fibrosis. For patients with Diabetic Nephropathy who have proteinuria, their condition is in the stage of fibrosis formation. As a result, protein leaks from nephron into the ureter. Therefore, when we treat the proteinuria, we should focus on treating the damaged nephron.
How to deal with proteinuria
-Conventional western medicine treatment. Drugs, such as prednisone, cyclophosphamide, angiotensin receptor blockers, ciclosporin, mycophenolate mofetil, are often used to treat proteinuria. Though proteinuria can be decreased in a short time, they have many side effects, such as leukopenia, hepatic injure.
-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is a natural therapy, which has few side effects. It can dilate blood vessels and improve the microcirculation of kidneys so as to alleviate the ischemia and hypoxia of the kidneys and increase the nutrient supply to intact nephron, preventing the renal fibrosis. At the same time, it will impair the sick nephron. When your kidneys return to a normal state, the leakage of protein will stop.
In order to prevent kidney failure or prolong the progression, proteinuria should be treated as earlier as possible. If all the nephrons become necrosis, you have to depend on dialysis or kidney transplant to sustain life.
You should keep hopeful at any time, and our doctors online are always glad to help you.
