Diabetic nephropathy is one of the manifestations of diabetic systemic microvascular disease, which is characterized by thickening of the glomerular capillary basement membrane, increased capillary permeability, renal microvascular pathological changes can lead to diffuse or nodular glomerulosclerosis. The clinical features are persistent proteinuria, progressive renal dysfunction, hypertension, edema, end stage appears severe renal failure.
Hypertensive patients with systemic blood pressure rise, the direct result is causing glomerular "three high" (high perfusion, high pressure, high filtration) state. With the increase of glomerular pressure, you may leak out some things that will not leak under normal pressure, proteinuria appears. Over time lead to glomerular sclerosis, while renal tubules and renal interstitial will be damaged, and ultimately develop into uremia. Clinical manifestations include urinary foam, nocturia increased, edema when the condition is severe, fatigue, nausea, chest tightness, shortness of breath and other symptoms.
How to distinguish between diabetic nephropathy and hypertensive nephropathy? We have learned that diabetic nephropathy and hypertensive nephropathy pathogenesis and symptoms are not the same, so from these aspects we can distinguish between diabetic nephropathy and hypertensive nephropathy. If you have a profound understanding of these two diseases, then it’s very easy to distinguish between the two diseases.
