Attentions for dialysis in patients with diabetic nephropath

2017-07-19 16:38

A new survey shows that a lot of diabetic nephropathy patients are prone to hemodialysis complications when taking hemodialysis, and the mortality rate is higher than it in patients with non-diabetic nephropathy. This has aroused widespread concern. The deterioration of kidney function caused by diabetic nephropathy develops quickly; and their high blood pressure is often difficult to control, so diabetic nephropathy should be treated as early as possible.

The choice of hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis for diabetic nephropathy should be based on the patient's specific circumstances. The hemodialysis efficiency is high, and the protein loss is less during dialysis. However, these patients often suffer from cardiovascular damage. They are prone to cardiovascular complications and hypotension during dialysis. Hypoglycemia may occur after dialysis. The peritoneal dialysis can reduce the cardiovascular burden and avoid hypoglycemia complication. But the downside is that it may increase the chances of abdominal infection and increase protein loss.

Diabetic nephropathy patients should still use insulin as common diabetic patients do, and dialysis patients should pay more attention to nutrition. Due to hyperkalemia and hypertension often occurs in diabetic nephropathy patients, so these patients should avoid high potassium foods, pay attention to controlling the intake of sodium and water, keep dry weight when taking dialysis. If you need medication, you can use vasodilators or calcium antagonists.
