Diabetic nephropathy is one of the major complications of diabetes, more and more people suffering from diabetic nephropathy, diabetic nephropathy if improper treatment will lead to kidney failure, or even uremia. Studies have shown that hypertension and hyperglycemia are important causes of aggravation of diabetic nephropathy. The following is a detailed introduction.
Hypertension is one of the "catalysts" to accelerate the progression of diabetic nephropathy. Hypertension is often associated with diabetic nephropathy, which promotes the progression and deterioration of the disease. Hypertension can occur at any time, most of which occur before diabetic nephropathy is diagnosed. Research shows that in the early stage of diabetic nephropathy, reduce blood pressure can reduce urinary albumin excretion in a large extent, the further development of reverse nephropathy in a certain degree; in the middle and late period, can effectively slow down the further deterioration of kidney disease. Therefore, the effective control of hypertension can reduce the progression of glomerular damage, reduce urinary protein, and prolong the patient's life.
Besides the heredity, hyperglycemia plays an important role in the occurrence and development of diabetic nephropathy. Hyperglycemia can activate many local endocrine hormones or cytokines in the kidney. The present study found that these substances are closely related to the occurrence and development of diabetic nephropathy. A large number of studies have shown that strict control of blood sugar can significantly reduce the risk of diabetic nephropathy.
Through the above introduction, we have learned that hypertension and hyperglycemia are important causes of aggravation of diabetic nephropathy. Therefore, diabetic nephropathy patients must control blood pressure and blood sugar, to avoid deterioration of the disease.
