Diabetic Kidney Disease with 15% Kidney Function-Not on Dialysis

2014-01-14 11:59

Diabetic kidney disease is secondary to diabetes.It commonly occurs among people with a long history of diabetes.In early stage, kidney damage is reversible.However,as the condition progresses,chronic kidney disease (CKD) will result. When renal function declines to 15% of normal, dialysis will be prescribed soon if no aggressive treatment is applied.Effective treatment will be introduced for a person with diabetic nephropathy with 15% renal function who is not on dialysis.

Diabetic kidney disease with 15% renal function

The small blood vessels with tiny holes act as filters in kidneys. The filters have mechanical barrier and charge barrier function so they can keep useful substances that body needs in blood. However, long-term high blood glucose can cause extra strain on the small blood vessels.Over time,they will become worn out and lose the barrier function.As a result, the useful substances will pass through the holes, ending up in urine. Protein in urine is the first sign of diabetic kidney disease.

Treatment for diabetic kidney disease with 15% renal function

If the patients have not started dialysis,an effective treatment may help them avoid its onset.

As mentioned above,diabetic kidney disease results from the damage to small blood vessels in kidneys.To control the condition fundamentally, a treatment should be used to restore the impaired blood vessels.

However,the conservative treatment only can help relieve the symptoms.To restore the impaired blood vessels and enhance renal function,Stem Cell Therapy will be the effective treatment.

Stem cells are a group of immature cells with differentiating capacity.They can differentiate into various kinds of body cells and tissues under certain circumstance.In treating diabetic kidney disease with 15% kidney function, stem cells can differentiate into new cells to replace the impaired and necrotic renal cells. When the impaired kidney structure can be restored, renal function will be enhanced. If so, dialysis will not be required.
