Can Damaged Kidneys Be Cured for Diabetics

Can Damaged Kidneys Be Cured for DiabeticsClinical statistic reports Diabetes is the leading one cause of Chronic Kidney Disease and it is said about 60% of patients go to dialysis due to their uncontrolled high blood sugar level. Diabetic kidney disease is life-threatening when it develops to end stage. Well, for a diabetic who is newly diagnosed with kidney problem, can his damaged kidneys be cured?

Diabetic kidney disease is clinically called Diabetic Nephropathy and the onset of it is marked by presence of albumin in urine. In the initial stage of diabetic kidney disease, illness is brought under control easily and also we have great chance to avoid kidney failure and dialysis. However, when illness develops to advanced stage, it will be very hard to bring everything under control. That is why we always emphasize early diagnosis and early treatment.

The medical term “cure” means get complete recovery in pathological changes. So far we can only help patients strengthen their kidneys and eliminate or alleviate their physical discomforts by repairing some injured kidney tissues, but as for the dead kidney tissues, we can not make them work again. Therefore, currently there is no cure for diabetic kidney disease.

Although damaged kidneys can not be cured for diabetics, with timely and effective treatment, they can live well with their illness, which means no dialysis and no kidney transplant. In China, nephrologists treat diabetic kidney disease mainly by three steps:

1. Tight control of high blood pressure and high blood sugar

This is a very important step, because both persistent high blood pressure and high blood sugar are harmful for kidney. If they are left alone, illness progression will be accelerated. As for this aspect, both medical treatment and diet changes are needed.

2. Repair injured kidney tissues

Kidney works through different kidney tissues which play different way while kidneys are functioning. In diabetic kidney disease, there are mainly three parts of kidney tissues: dead kidney tissues, injured kidney tissues and healthy kidney tissues. By repairing injured kidney tissues, illness can be reversed to relatively mild stage.

3. Strengthen healthy kidney tissues

With this step, diabetics can get their kidneys strengthened, which helps them stay far away from new kidney damages.

Diabetic kidney disease is a refractory illness, but in China, thought can not be cured, it can be controlled tightly, which guarantee diabetics a high quality life.
