Does Diabetes Cause Chronic Kidney Disease

2013-10-11 10:19

It is well known that diabetes is the most common cause of chronic kidney disease. It occurs when your body does not make enough insulin and can’t use the insulin it makes. Insulin is a hormone and it controls the amount of sugar in your body. A high blood sugar level can cause various problems in many parts of your body, including your kidney. Once your kidney is damaged, it cannot filter your blood or do other jobs as well as it should, finally may cause chronic kidney disease.

Firstly, as we all know that the filtering units of the kidney are filled with tiny blood vessels. Over time, the high sugar level in the blood can cause these vessels to become narrow and clogged. Without enough blood, the kidney becomes damaged and albumin passes these filters and finally flows out in the urine.

Secondly, diabetes can also damage the nerves in your body. Nerves carry messages between your brain and other parts of your body, including your bladder. It can let your brain know when your bladder is full. But when the nerves of your bladder damaged, you may not be able to feel when your bladder is full. Finally, the pressure from a full bladder can damage your kidney seriously. For a long time, chronic kidney disease may appear.

Thirdly, if urine stays in your bladder for a long time, in the end, you may get a urinary tract infection. If it affects the bladder most often, sometimes it can also spread to the kidney.
