2014-01-31 16:26

diabetic complicationsDiabetic kidney disease is one of serious condition secondary to diabetes. It is a progressive kidney disorder. As renal function declines, GFR will decrease and creatinine will become elevated. What is the treatment for diabetic kidney disease with GFR 19 and creatinine 4.2?

Diabetic kidney disease with GFR 19 and creatinine 4.2

In the kidneys, millions of tiny blood vessels with even tinier holes in hem act as filters. When blood flows through the blood vessels, small molecular waste products will squeeze through the holes. The useful substances are too big too pass through the holes in the filters so will stay in body.

However, in Diabetes, long-term blood glucose level can cause extra strain on the small blood vessels. Over time, the blood vessels will become impaired and leaky. Hence, the kidneys will fail to function adequately.

GFR measures how much blood is filtered by glomeruli. When kidneys become damaged, less blood is filtered by kidneys, thus resulting in reduced GFR.

When GFR declines to 19ml/min, high level of waste products will build up in blood. Creatinine 4.2 implies high buildup of toxins and waste products in blood.

To treat the condition effectively, two treatment goals should be attained. One is to clear up the waste products from blood. Another one is to reverse the damage to the blood vessels in kidneys to improve renal function.

However, it is hard to attain the above treatment goals. Besides the conservative treatment methods, Blood Purification and Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy will also be applied in the treatment process.

Blood purification is not a specific treatment method to purify blood. It refers to a group of blood purification methods. Based on the types of harmful products in blood, corresponding method will be applied.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy can activate the self-healing system of renal functional cells in body. When the impaired kidney structure is repaired, renal function will be improved fundamentally. If so, high creatinine level will be lowered and GFR will be increased.
