What Causes Diabetic NephropathyDiabetic Nephropathy is the most common cause of kidney failure. What on earth causes Diabetic Nephropathy? This question has been asked many times. To know the causes is helpful for us to put forward treatment plans and preventive measures. Honestly speaking, the exact cause of Diabetic Nephropathy is unknown, but there are some corresponding factors:

As its name implies, Diabetic Nephropathy may be caused diabetes. Diabetes is characterized by high blood sugar. It is well known that kidney is surrounded by many tiny blood vessels, which may be damaged exposed to high blood sugar for a long time. As a result, there is not enough oxygen and nutrients transported to kidney. Kidney failure occurs due to ischemia and anoxia.

Of course, not everyone with diabetes develops kidney disease. People with diabetes are susceptible to developing Diabetic Nephropathy if they:

-do not properly control their blood sugar levels

-are of African American, Hispanic or Native and Alaskan American origin.

-have a family history of kidney disease or high blood pressure. High blood pressure may press protein leak out of blood vessels, resulting in damage to kidney filtration system. Over time, kidney disease occurs.

-have diabetes for at least 25 years

-smoking and alcohol abuse. Smoking and drinking alcohol can narrow and harden your arteries, increasing blood pressure.

-lack of exercise

Other factors, such as obesity, hyperlipidemia, high blood cholesterol, may also contribute to the progression of nephropathy.

Now you have a general knowledge about the causes of Diabetic Nephropathy, so you should try to bring these risk factors under control. Only in this way, can you avoid Diabetic Nephropathy and reduce the damage to kidneys.
