Best Diabetes and Kidney Care in Kolkata
Protecting your kidneys by screening and appropriate team care at ADEA Diabetes Centre
Patents with type 1 or type 2 diabetes experience problems with their kidneys. That’s because, over time, high blood sugar levels can cause damage. This damage can make it more difficult for the body to dispose of waste and other fluids, causing a waste build-up in the blood system.
If you have diabetes, you may or may not experience kidney disease. But, it’s always a good idea to closely monitor the health of your kidneys. You’re more likely to experience problems if you have high blood pressure, trouble controlling your blood glucose and a family history of kidney disease. With good blood glucose levels and regular check-ups, kidney issues are greatly reduced.
If you have diabetes, it’s important to get regular urine and blood tests. These routine screenings will help detect a protein called albumin in your urine. Screenings can also find a substance called creatinine in your blood if your kidneys are not working well.
In the early stages of kidney disease, people often don’t experience symptoms. Later stage symptoms can include poor sleep, lack of appetite, upset stomach, and more. That’s why it’s so important to get regular tests, no matter how you’re feeling. Specialists at our centre can help in this regards. Our team will guide you through treatment and care, working to prevent major kidney complications.
The most important treatment for kidney disease is prevention. This involves closely monitoring blood glucose levels and blood pressure before they weaken the kidneys.
