What Factors Affect The Prognosis Of Diabetic NephropathyHow about the prognosis of Diabetic Nephropathy? Actually there are several factors that can influence its prognosis. If you want to read more on the information, please read through the following article. Then you will find the answer.

1. Proteinuria

At present, the main factor affecting the prognosis of Diabetic Nephropathy is proteinuria. The amount of protein in urine and how long proteinuria affect the prognosis. Proteinuria can be classified into microalbuminuria, clinical proteinuria and severe proteinuria according to the severity of the disease. If proteinuria is more obvious, medical conditions will be worsened and then patients will suffer from swelling, hypoproteinemia and high blood pressure. Kidney failure is more likely to occur.

2. Blood sugar level

Blood sugar level is another important factor. Persistently high blood pressure will lead to high pressure of glomerular, hypertransfusion and hyperfiltration. That is, kidney will be put a burden and overworked. If left untreated, it will cause glomerular sclerosis and fibrosis. Finally, uremia will disappear.

3. High blood pressure

Most diabetic nephropathy will experience high blood pressure. Elevated pressure in glomerular will make more protein be excreted. This speeds up the progression of kidney disease and cause further kidney damage.

High blood fat can also cause kidney damage by way of changing blood viscosity and brittleness of red blood cells. Additionally, high protein diet, smoking, obesity can affect the prognosis of diabetic nephropathy to some degree.

How to improve the prognosis of diabetic nephropathy?

Controlling the above medical conditions plays an important role in improving the prognosis of diabetic nephropathy. Diet and medication both can keep proteinuria, blood sugar and high blood pressure under control. But they only control the symptoms temporarily and do nothing on the damaged kidneys. Thus, we need Chinese medicines to repair damaged kidney cells and improve renal function. Once kidney function is improved, clinical symptoms both disappear naturally.
