Nowadays more and more people get diabetes and high blood pressure. That is really terrible. Because both of them can develop to Diabetic Nephropathy and Hypertensive Nephropathy after decades of years. Therefore, you should pay close attention to your physical condition in the daily. Today let’s have a look at Mr.Lee’s story.
He is 59 years old. He has been with diabetes for over two decades. Not long ago, swelling appeared on his legs, and there were a lot of bubbles in his urine. Seeing these conditions, he went to local hospital for check-up. And he was diagnosed with Diabetic Nephropathy.
After a period of treatment in the local, swelling remained, and protein in urine did not reduce as well, so he left hospital for home. At that time, he was very anxious and asked around which hospital could help him get good recovery. Under the guidance of his friends, he went to our hospital for treatment.
Test report showed that his 24h urine protein was 1.62g and high blood pressure was 155/79 mmHg. Dr.Zhao told him that it is difficult to diagnose this disease a the onset, but it worsens quickly. Once kidneys are damaged, it is irreversible. It can even cause kidney damage. Therefore, we should not only use medications for treatment, but also have a good control of diet.
The detailed treatment plan was:
1. Chinese medicine was adopted to repair glomerular filtration membrane and decrease its permeability. Medicated Foot Bath, Hot Compress Therapy, Mai Kang Mixture and oral Chinese medicine were mainly used to increase the activity of medications so that they can be adopted and utilized by body. And then protein in urine would disappear.
2. Low protein diet. It could reduce glomerular hypertransfusion, reduce proteinuria and decrease blood pressure. It can also increase serum albumin level and stabilize creatinine clearance rate. Mr.Lee’s height was 174cm and weight was 86kg, so his protein intake should be no more than 77g.
After a period of treatment, her swelling faded away. He found bubbles in urine reduced as well. After check-up, his 24h urine protein decreased to 0.42g and his blood pressure reduced as well.
Though his condition improved gradually, his doctor told him that he should keep on the above treatment continuously.
We should know that medical treatment for Diabetic Nephropathy is temporary, while diet control is life-long. If you are also troubled by Diabetic Nephropathy and want to try our treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor directly.
