A regular physical exam can help you have a good knowledge of your physical condition. Generally speaking, the following test can help diagnose Diabetic Nephropathy.

-Microalbuminuria test

Microalbuminuria is the early symptom of Diabetic Nephropathy. Under normal circumstance, urine does not contain album, so the presence of the protein in your urine is a sign of kidney damage.

-Serum creatinine blood test

Creatinine is discharged by kidneys. If your creatinine levels are high, it may mean that your kidneys are damaged.

-BUN blood test

Kidneys remove BUN from your body by sending BUN to the bladder. If your kidneys are not functioning correctly, it increases. So higher than normal levels of BUN may be a sign of kidney failure.

Other tests, such as blood pressure test, high cholesterol test, etc.

When your doctor are still not sure whether you have Diabetic Nephropathy or not from the above test, he may perform a kidney biopsy.

From the above, Diabetic Nephropathy may be diagnosed. Once you are diagnosed with Diabetic Nephropathy, aggressive treatment can help you get rid of disease as early as possible. May you live healthily and happily.
