What are the complications of diabetic nephropathy2017-01-26 15:47
Diabetic nephropathy is a serious chronic disease caused by diabetes, patients often can cause acute renal failure, hypertension, retinopathy and renal microvascular disease and other complications, therefore should pay attention to early, diagnosis early and early treatment.
Diabetes complicated with hypertension
A lot of diabetic nephropathy patients is hypertension with microalbuminuria before, diabetic patients with hypertension than those without hypertension will be faster to develop diabetes nephropathy. So when the diabetic patients with diastolic blood pressure greater than or equal to 12kPa, there may be suspected of diabetes nephropathy.
Diabetic retinopathy and renal microvascular disease
Diabetic retinopathy and renal microvascular disease can exist at the same time, retinopathy can be secondary to diabetic nephropathy, the incidence of retinopathy is generally higher than renal microvascular lesions. Because of retinal lesions easy to observe, and diabetic nephropathy is difficult to diagnose, so diabetic patients with retinal lesions should be alert to nephropathy.
Advanced concurrent cardiovascular diseases
Patients with advanced diabetic nephropathy complicated with cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis, pericarditis, colitis, hemorrhagic disease and nervous system disease.
Patients with angiography examination easily complicated with acute renal failure
The clinical use of contrast agents found that diabetics can produce kidney failure, and contrast examination in patients with diabetic nephropathy complicated with acute renal failure, so diabetic patients had renal insufficiency do angiography should be particularly careful.
