What Are the Common Symptoms of Diabetic NephropathyDiabetic nephropathy is a common complication of kidney disease and is really caused by diabetes. More and more people are suffering from diabetes in recent years, especially in the old people. Well, what are the common symptoms of diabetic nephropathy? Let’s talk about them together now.

As a matter of fact, there is no obvious symptom at the early stage of diabetic nephropathy. A small amount of albumin may be the first sign of this disease. Over time, more and more symptoms will show distinctly. The common symptoms of diabetic nephropathy include:

A. Foamy urine

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

B. Swelling

Most diabetic nephropathy patients suffer from swelling. 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.

C. High blood pressure

High blood pressure can lead to diabetic nephropathy. In return, diabetes kidney disease can increase the blood pressure level. It is usually caused by the increased renin with diseased kidney.

D. 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 common symptoms of diabetic nephropathy. If you have been diagnosed with diabetic nephropathy and suffer from the symptoms that are not included in the above, please consult our online doctor.
