Symptoms on Patients with Diabetic NephropathyDiabetic nephropathy is a common complication of kidney disease. It is widely believed to caused by diabetes. Do you know the exact symptoms on patients with diabetic nephropathy? If not, follow me to learn or talk to our online doctor directly if you are interested in this topic.

At the early stage of diabetic nephropathy, there is no obvious symptom. A small amount of albumin in the urine may be the first sign of disease. Over time, the symptoms will be more distinct. Diabetic nephropathy patients may suffer from the following symptoms:

Foamy urine

As diabetic nephropathy progresses, more kidney damage will occur. More proteins flow through glomeruli and end up in urine. Foamy urine is caused by the excess protein in the urine.


Most diabetic nephropathy patients suffer from edema. Swelling firstly occurs in the legs and feet and eye lids and spread to the whole body. It is usually caused by the leakage of protein in blood and excessive fluid in the body.

High blood pressure

High blood pressure can lead to diabetic nephropathy. In return, diabetes kidney disease can increase the blood pressure level.

High cholesterol level

The leakage of protein in blood will cause high cholesterol. This can then increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and blood vessel diseases.

Weight loss

Many diabetic nephropathy patients suffer from weight loss and malnutrition. If the patients have proteinuria, they have to limit the amount of protein in diet. Malnutrition and weight loss will be caused in this condition.

Poor appetite

Poor appetite is mainly due to high level of uremic toxins in body. Healthy kidneys can filter out urea nitrogen from body. However, once the kidneys are damaged, high level of urea nitrogen will build up in body. The urea nitrogen will be decomposed into ammonia in gastrointestinal tract, thus leading to gastrointestinal problems like poor appetite, nausea and vomiting.

The above are the symptoms on patients with diabetic nephropathy, there are still some others. You must remember that health is more expensive than everything in the world.
