Arrow Diabetes: my diet and my kidney

How can I prevent diabetes kidney problems?

All of the potential secondary problems that arise with diabetes are due damage caused when blood glucose levels are outside of the normal range. This is why it's important to be vigilant in monitoring your blood glucose levels and keeping them close to normal as you can. If uncertain, ask your doctor what blood glucose levels are healthy for you.

I noted blood pressure as a key concern for diabetes sufferers. The kidney is basically a bank of micro filters; and like any other filter they are damaged if a fluid medium is squeezed through them under too much pressure. So, the next area to watch, to avoid kidney problems, is your blood pressure. The aim is to keep your blood pressure below 130/80; and this will to help prevent kidney damage. Again, ask your doctor what blood pressure range is best for you. If you are on regular blood pressure pills, take them as your doctor directs - it's important no to miss them. Other body parts or functions that will benefit from keeping your blood pressure under control are your eyes, heart, and blood vessels.

There are two principal kinds of kidney medications that will slow down kidney damage. These are :

ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme) inhibitor

ARB (angiotensin receptor blocker)

Do ask your doctor if you should be taking these medications or read diabetic medication thoughts

Diet can be a factor affecting kidney disease and recovery. Your doctor or dietician will ba bale to help you work out a healthy eating plan. If you have kidney problems, they may suggest you cut back on protein rich foods such as meat.
