Early Diagnosis of Diabetic Nephropathy is of Great Importance
When small amount of albuminuria (usually 20~200μg/min or 30～300 mg/d) continuously appears on diabetics who have several years of medical history, you have potential risk of early-stage Diabetic Nephropathy. With longer medical history and positive protein in urine, or even large amount of proteinuria and nephrotic syndrome, you should consider diagnosis of clinical Diabetic Nephropathy.
Measurement of your renal function is another criterion. Decreasing renal function usually presents in the late stage of Diabetic Nephropathy. So far, clinically we measure the renal function by testing the creatinine level or blood urine nitrogen. However, if you are suffering from Diabetes, you had better measure the creatinine clearance rate or glomerular filtration rate.
Through detecting symptoms like swelling, fatigue, loss of appetite, high blood pressure, excessive urination and excessive thirst, we can discover the disease and take measures in time.
