2014-01-06 16:31

Type 1 diabetes is also called insulin-dependent diabetes.Once a person is diagnosed with it,insulin will be prescribed.Generally, the disease course of type 1 diabetes is very long. It can increase the patients' risk of developing kidney damage significantly.This article will introduce treatment for stage 3 kidney disease in type 1 diabetes.

Stage 3 kidney disease in type 1 diabetes

In type 1 diabetes,the beta-islet cells are damaged and fail to produce insulin properly.It mainly occurs among young people below age 35. The patients with type 1 diabetes are at high risk of developing chronic kidney disease (CKD) even if their blood glucose level is controlled very well.High blood pressure can elevate the chance of CKD significantly.

Nephrons are the basic functional units in kidneys.Every kidney contain about one million nephrons.However,high blood glucose can cause extra strain on nephrons. Over time, the nephrons will become worn out and fail to function properly.

A person with stage 3 kidney disease in type 1 diabetes has moderated kidney damage.A number of early symptoms of kidney damage start to show like edema, bone disease, anemia etc.

Treatment for stage 3 kidney disease in type 1 diabetes

Stage 3 kidney disease is a very critical phase for seeking for a treatment.Without intervention treatment,the kidney damage will not be reversed.

To treat stage 3 kidney disease in type 1 diabetes, Immunotherapy and Hot Compress Therapy will be the recommended treatments.

Immunotherapy can correct the immune dysfunction and stop the immune system from attacking islet cells.Also,it can stimulate the self-repairing of the cells,thus enhancing the pancreatic function. Hence, type 1 diabetes will be controlled.

Hot compress therapy can activate the self-healing ability of the body.When the impaired kidney tissues and cells are regenerated and repaired, the number of nephrons will increase. Hence, renal function will be enhanced remarkably.
