Do You Know Main Causes of Diabetic Kidney Disease (Diabetic Nephropathy)
High blood sugar
Diabetics who have high blood sugar have great risk to develop into Diabetic Kidney Disease, because high blood sugar intensifies blood concentration and forces the kidneys to work overload so as to excrete more sugar which leads to deposition of extracellular matrix and thicker of glomerular basement membrane. As a result, renal function declines due to glomerulus’s sclerosis which will aggravate gradually.
High blood pressure
Though there is no direct relationship between high blood pressure and presence of Diabetic Nephropathy, high blood pressure, whether primary or secondary to Diabetic Kidney Disease, will aggravate excretion of proteinuria and accelerate the progress of the disease.
Those who have family history of both diabetes and high blood pressure have more incidence of Diabetic Kidney Disease. The morbidity differs among different races.
Besides, certain other things make you more likely to get Diabetic Kidney Disease. If you also have high cholesterol, or if you smoke, your risk is higher. Also, Native Americans, African Americans, and Hispanics (especially Mexican Americans) have a higher risk.
