Diabetes - Diagnosing Blood Vessel Abnormalities in Diabetics

by Bella Edward (2019-04-11)

Diabetic nephropathy, or  Kachin Diabetes Solution   kidney disease, is caused by damage to the nephrons, which are made up of tiny blood vessels and kidney tubules. When they become damaged the kidneys are not able to carry out the blood filtration they need to do. Protein from the blood is then spilled into the kidneys. Signs and symptoms of diabetic nephropathy include:

Central Diabetes Insipidus is a neurogenic disease where the hypothalamus in the brain does not make any anti-diuretic hormone (ADH), which is also known as vasopressin. This hormone is stored in the posterior pituitary of the brain until it is used in the kidneys for reabsorption of water. ADH controls the concentration of urine that is excreted from the body, but if it is not made, our bodies cannot reabsorb water, so we will produce very dilute urine. This acquired disorder can be caused by trauma to the brain or is idiopathic. Patients present dehydrated with excessive thirst and urination. Treatment is replacement of the hormone with artificial Desmopressin.

Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus is a pathological disorder where the receptors at the collecting tubules in the kidneys do not respond to ADH. This problem prevents the kidneys from concentrating urine causing the release of very dilute urine. Patients present with excessive thirst and urination causing severe dehydration. Causes of this acquired disease can be lithium use or electrolyte imbalance. This condition can be treated with a low sodium and low protein diet, as well as with diuretics, such as Hydrochlorothiazide and Amiloride.

Although Type 2 diabetes runs rampant throughout our society, it doesn't mean you automatically have to develop it! There are plenty of ways you can improve your lifestyle to significantly reduce the risk of developing full-blown Type 2 diabetes. Impaired glucose tolerance has been established as an early indication of the possibility of developing Type 2 diabetes, as have high blood pressure, and heart problems.
