2014-11-10 03:56

Nursing Interventions for Diabetic NephropathyDiabetic Nephropathy is a common complication of diabetes. It does not only impair your health, but also creates psychological pressure. Besides medical treatment, you should also pay attention to the daily care. In the following, I list some nursing interventions for Diabetic Nephropathy patients. Hope they can help you alleviate your sufferings.

Have a knowledge of the dangers of diabetes

Diabetes management helps ease Diabetic Nephropathy. But so far the most common used treatment is western medicine. It can lower blood sugar level quickly, but it has many side effects and can not prevent complications. Though TCM takes effect slowing in blood sugar reduction, it can prevent complication. The combination of western medicine and TCM may achieve a better curative effect.

Combine exertion and rest

If patients have no high blood pressure, edema, and kidney function impairment, they can take part in moderate physical exercise to boost immune system and prevent infection. On the contrary, patients should have a good rest.

Monitor the patients’ medical condition

-Diabetic Nephropathy patients should weigh themselves twice a day. This helps control weight. Weight gain is not good for patients to control their state of illness.

-Observe their urine volume and color. If there is any change, you should tell the doctors timely.

-Measure the patients’ blood pressure, edema, urine test and kidney function change. If the patients have less urine, edema and high blood pressure, tell the doctor.

-Pay attention to the diet intake. Diabetic Nephropathy patients should eat moderate high quality protein like egg white and lean meat, less unsaturated fat, low sugar, enough carbohydrate and high vitamins. If the patients have severe edema, they should control the sodium intake.

Now more and more people have diabetes. And the chance of getting Diabetic Nephropathy also increases. If you are diagnosed with Diabetic Nephropathy, do not be over worried. Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital can help you revive kidney function and return to a normal life.
