Eyelid Swelling and Diabetic Nephropathy (Diabetic Kidney Disease)
Experts say that if Diabetes patients present eyelid or lower limbs swelling, he/she may have developed Diabetic Nephropathy. If one has a history of Diabetes Mellitus for more than 25 years, he/she has a 50% chance to get Diabetic Nephropathy. The swelling caused by Diabetic Nephropathy starts from lower limbs, then eyelid, face and the whole body finally.
Diabetic Nephropathy is one of the most common complications of Diabetes Mellitus, so patients with Diabetes should have routine check of kidney functions, which is very important. Patients should have the check of microalbuminuria, urine routine and kidney function. If eyelid or lower- limbe swelling appears, patients should be alert and take further examinations.
Once patients get Diabetic Nephropathy, Diabetics should treat it from its primary diseases,such as strict control of blood sugar, blood pressure, blood lipid and so on.
Generally speaking, fasting blood glucose (FBG) should be controlled in 4.4-5.6mmol/L;2-hour postprandial blood glucose should be not more than 8.0mmol/L; glycolated hemoglobin should be controlled in 6.5%; the blood pressure should be controlled in 125/75mmHg. Meanwhile, the blood lipid should also be controlled in a normal level, which includes: triglyceride, cholesterol and low density lipoprotein.
Diabetic Nephropathy should be controlled before the damage of kidney functions. Patients should seek proper treatment to avoid the development of renal failure or even Uremia. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Stem Cell Transplant are suggested by experts from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital. They can treat Diabetic Nephropathy without any side effects.
