How are renal glycosuria and diabetes different?

How are renal glycosuria and diabetes different?

2 different things: For reasons we don't understand, sometimes the kidneys may allow some glucose to slip out into the urine even when the blood level of glucose is normal. This can be detected by a urine dipstick test. In diabetes, the blood level of glucose will be high. In some diabetics, the blood glucose gets so high that the sugar spills over into the urine also. ...Read more

My mom have renal parenchymal disease with cortical cysts. Is it cure able? Is it fatal?She has BP and diabetes. How should we proceed? Worried now

It depends: Some people can have a few renal cysts that will not have any affect on long term renal function. There are some people who have extensive cyst disease that can ultimately cause renal failure. It is rare that cyst disease progresses to renal failure. Progressive renal insufficiency is more often seen in people with diabetes and hypertension which have been poorly controlled. ...Read more

Are there methods of kidney stone removal, other than eswl, that do not require stents? I don't want eswl due to risks for diabetes, htn, renal harm.

Dr. James Lin Dr. Lin
1 doctor agreed:
Are there methods of kidney stone removal, other than eswl, that do not require stents? I don't want  eswl due to risks for diabetes, htn, renal harm.

No,...: If clinical necessity to remove kidney is justified, eswl without stent can be tried, but one has to be willing and ready to cope if stent after eswl is needed. If ureteroscopic route with laser lithotripsy is taken, the likelihood to use stent is very high. So, there is no easy out to manage kidney stone. Besides, stone size, load, ; density may affect the decision on how to handle it.... ...Read more

My ca 125 result was 4.1. I have diabetes, stage 3 renal failure, high blood pressure, and sinus/allergy problems. Should i be concerned?

My ca 125 result was 4.1.  I have diabetes, stage 3 renal failure, high blood pressure, and sinus/allergy problems.  Should i be concerned?

Not really: Why was ca 125 ordered ? What are we looking for? Ask your doctor and yourself. Do you have any complaints of fullness, abdominal pain, bladder problem etc...? We ususally measure these markers after a diagnosis of cancer is made, but not before. Some markers go up slightly with renal failure. Control of diabetes, blood pressure and renal would be recommended. Thank you for asking. ...Read more
