Is Diabetic Nephropathy Dangerous

How does Diabetes lead to Diabetic Nephropathy?

The wastes are discharged out of body through the small blood vessels in the kidneys, which can still keep the useful substances in the blood. If the blood sugar level is high, these tiny vessels in kidneys will be damaged. If the blood sugar level stays high for a lone time, Diabetic Nephropathy will be caused.

What dangerous complications will Diabetic Nephropathy bring about?

1. Cystitis, Pyelitis

Patients with Diabetes have a weak immune resistance to bacteria because phagocytosis of the white blood cells declines, which is why patients with Diabetes are vulnerable to Cystitis. If bacteria go to the kidneys with the blood circulation, the kidneys are likely to have infection, and the most common one is Pyelitis. Cystitis and Pyelitis happen on females more often than males because of the difference of the physical structures.

2. Glomerulosclerosis

For patients with Diabetic Nephropathy, they tend to develop Glomerulosclerosis, which could lead to the build-up of wastes in the body. What is worse, the condition will progress into Diabetic Uremia at last if no proper measures are taken.

3. Acystinervia

Acystinervia is a very common concern bothering patients with Diabetic Nephropathy. Patients will experience disorder of local neurologic structures, which will make the muscles controlling the contract of bladder loses its function. As a result, the urine can not be cleared and cause retention of urine, which provides a favorable environment for the reproduction of bacteria and lead to cystitis.
