Early Symptoms of Diabetic NephropathyAccording to statistics, 40% of uremia patients who have received dialysis are caused by diabetes. Diabetic Nephropathy has become the leading cause of uremia. Then can you only wait for kidney failure or uremia with Diabetic Nephropathy? Doesn’t Diabetic Nephropathy show any symptoms in early stages?

Like most kidney diseases, Diabetic Nephropathy is most likely to be neglected and delayed in treatment when its symptoms are not obvious at the early stage. Two symptoms and a test can help you monitor for kidney disease:

Symptom 1: Leg swelling

It mainly refers to pitting edema. When you press the legs, there will be a hole.

The reason for leg edema is that Diabetic Nephropathy patients have metabolic abnormalities, resulting in water and sodium retention; and when kidneys are damaged, glomerular filtration rate decreases, and protein leaks into urine so that plasma colloid osmotic pressure declines, and then fluid goes into tissue space, leading to edema. Due to gravity, edema usually appears in lower limbs, such as legs.

Symptom 2: Blood pressure keeps high.

Patients with diabetes are usually accompanied by hypertension, which can be kept stable by medication, but the increase of blood pressure will be aggravated after kidney damage. If there is no targeted treatment for the cause of high blood pressure, the drug control effect is often poor.

1 Test: microalbuminuria

Microalbuminuria is a typical symptom in the early stage of diabetic nephropathy. If microalbumin in urine is abnormal, it can basically indicate that the kidney has been damaged and should be treated in time. In general, it should be checked every six months or a year.

If there is a large amount of protein leakage, renal function has been seriously damaged. Without being treated in time, the result can only be uremia.

If you have been with diabetes for years, you should pay attention to the above symptoms and test. The earlier you detect the disease, the earlier you can start treatment, and the better your prognosis.
