Occurrence of Hypertension Accompanied with Diabetic Nephropathy
Patients with Diabetic Nephropathy are accompanied with other diseases besides renal function recession, among which high blood pressure is an obvious symptoms. It is investigated that most patients with Diabetes are accompanied with hypertension. What do you know about the occurrence of Hypertension accompanied with Diabetic Nephropathy?
1. Causes of Hypertension for patients with Diabetics Nephropathy
(1) Blood sugar causes high blood pressure and microangiopathy leads to Hypertension for patients with Diabetic Nephropathy.
(2) Glycosylation and fat increase vascular sensitivity and lead to damage of vessel wall, so Hypertension occurs.
(3) Further renal disorders cause Hypertension.
2. Damages of Diabetic Nephropathy and Hypertension
If patients with Diabetic Nephropathy have poor control of their blood pressure, it will lead to damage of renal vascular, blood insufficiency, further kidney damage, forming Hypertension and Renal Failure.
3. Symptoms of Diabetic Syndrome and Hypertension
Early sign of Hypertension is nocturia.
Symptoms of Hypertension in medium and late period of Diabetic Nephropathy: muscle twitch, lancinating pain in hands and feet, nausea and vomiting, body itching, convulsions, muscle cramps, anemia, weight loss, muscle weakness, bad breath and brown skin, white powder on skin surface.
Hypertension occurs in medium and late period of Diabetes, that is, phase III of Diabetic Nephropathy. At this period, blood pressure begins to increase. Later it will increase significantly. If high blood pressure occurs before Diabetic Nephropathy or Diabetes, it is primary hypertension. If high blood pressure occurs after Diabetic Nephropathy, the disease will be aggravated or patients will have poor reaction to treatment.
The main manifestation of Hypertension is the increase of systolic blood pressure. For patients with Kidney Failure, obvious swelling can be found and systolic blood pressure or diastolic blood pressure gets higher. Generally, patients with Diabetic Nephropathy are accompanied with autonomic dysfunction and large fluctuations in blood pressure, which is hard to control. When Hypertension occurs, other complications can be found, such as retinopathy and cardiovascular diseases.
Patients should keep the stability of their blood pressure, which should be above 140/90mmHg. In addition, patients should take antihypertensive treatment.
Experts suggest patients should measure daytime blood pressure. Gradually, they will notice the importance of monitoring of blood pressure. If you have any questions about Hypertension or Diabetic Nephropathy, you can email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Wish you have a good time!
