More and More Diabetics Get Uremia Because They Make Two Big MistakesAccording to the diabetes survey data released by IDF, there are about 420 million people with diabetes worldwide. And there is also a growing trend each year. Faced with such a situation, diabetic patients have to control their blood sugar to avoid more harm. In addition, prevention of various complications is the most important treatment of diabetes. Because those prevention can threaten life without good control.

Among the diabetic complications, Diabetic Nephropathy should be attached importance. It is the most lethal complication.

Many diabetics know little about kidney disease, and therefore less about the prevention and treatment of kidney disease. However, Diabetic Nephropathy is the most typical and most common complication of diabetes. Blood glucose metabolic disorders for a long time, can affect the whole body blood flow, including kidneys, which can lead to high filtration of kidneys and kidney hypertrophy so as to directly affect the glomerular filtration function. In early stage, microalbuminuria appears. As the disease progresses, there will be heavy proteinuria, high blood pressure, etc. In most severe case, kidney atrophy, fibrosis, hardening, or even uremia appears.

However, not all diabetic patients will develop renal damage, and about 20%-30% of them have uremia, and patients who are more prone to these two mistakes are more likely to get uremia:

1. No attention is paid to drug management, and blood sugar level fluctuates.

Some patients feel that drugs have side effects or are busy with work, so taking drugs is always intermittent, resulting in the inability to guarantee the blood drug concentration so that blood sugar level fluctuates. However, they do not realize that long-term fluctuations of blood glucose are more harmful than high blood glucose, which leaves a big risk for kidney damage. Therefore, to take required medicine on time is the key to prevent and cure the complications.

2. No attention is paid to the improvement of living habits.

Some patients feel that since they have taken drugs, there is no need to follow diet restrictions. And they are still too lazy to exercise. What is worse, they keep on smoking, staying up, etc. However, they do not realize that these are the important factors leading to rapid increasing of blood sugar, and they are also the direct cause of uremia. Therefore, in addition to medication, diabetics must pay attention to a healthy diet and exercise.

Time bomb of Diabetes - Cardiovascular disease

Diabetes patients often have hypertension, hyperlipidemia and other metabolic diseases. If several diseases occurs together, they will put great pressure on heart, severely impacting on the normal blood circulation of heart so as to cause arteriosclerosis, and coronary heart disease easily. And sometimes long-term diabetics are more likely to have a sudden occur of cardiovascular disease so as to threaten life.

For the prevention and treatment of complications, in addition to keep blood sugar stable, improve lifestyle, and take medicine on time, it is important to do physical examination regularly. For people with diabetes for over 5 years, examination of kidney function, heart, nervous system, eye and other organs and parts should be done each year. For people with diabetes for over 10 years, thorough examination should be done at least once each year.
