2013-07-19 09:41

For one with chronic kidney failure caused by Diabetes, stage 3 is a very crucial stage. In this case, if stage 3 kidney failure and diabetes can be treated timely and fundamentally, patients will get a obvious remission. Otherwise, illness condition develops to end stage renal failure easily and quickly.

As a diabetic, how do I know if I am suffering from stage 3 kidney failure?

Stage 3 is a very crucial stage for patients, but the problem is many diabetics do not know they are suffering from kidney problem at all until they have obvious discomforts which always indicate advanced kidney problem.

Stage 3 kidney failure caused by Diabetes actually refers to stage 3 Diabetic Nephropathy. In first two stages of this kind of kidney problem, GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) is higher than the normal range due to high blood pressure and patients may have trace of albumin in their urine. Chronic Kidney Failure caused by Diabetes is still reversible in first two stages, and causes no elevation of blood pressure. However, when it develops to stage 3, not only blood pressure increases, proteinuria gets more serious as well. Therefore, regular physical examination is essential for diagnosing stage 3 kidney failure caused by Diabetes.

How to treat stage 3 kidney failure due to diabetes?

With stage 3 kidney failure and diabetes, patients run a high risk to undergo dialysis and kidney transplant within short term, so a timely and effective treatment is very crucial at this stage. To stop illness progression, patients usually need to:

1. Control blood sugar in normal range

Persistent high blood sugar is the root cause of kidney damages. And if blood sugar left uncontrolled, more and more kidney tissues will be injured, which will lead to the quick progression of illness. Therefore, controlling blood sugar in normal range is an essential part in treating stage 3 kidney failure caused by Diabetes.

2. Tight control of blood pressure

Similar with high blood sugar, high blood pressure can also cause kidney damages, so tight control of blood pressure also play a part in treating Diabetic Nephropathy.

3. A well-planned diet

What we eat affect our physical condition directly. For patients with stage 3 kidney failure and diabetes, they need to adjust their protein intake, salt intake, sugar intake and lipid intake, so as to avoid causing extra burden on kidney.
