Narrowing of the esophagus due to inflammation, scarring or tumor can cause food to get stuck. Not rare with chronic reflux/heartburn symptoms-typically solids. Tight lower esoph sphincter can cause also. Abnormalities in muscles/nerves/coordination of swallow cause problems with solids and liquids.

What are the signs of diabetic kidney disease?

None

Diabetic_retinopathy
Diabetes can hurt the kidneys and not be detectable on urine or blood test. In fact, studies have been done on diabetes patients who have normal kidney test, yet biopsies of these patients show damage. Diabetic retinopathy correlates with diabetic nephropathy. Studies have shown ace inhibitors to be protective of kidneys on both normotensive and hypertensive patients.

Dr. Raj P. Singh answered:

What exactly is diabetic kidney disease?

Protein in urine

Physical_exam
Diabetes affects kidneys in several ways, causes leakage of protein especially albumin in the urine and causes reduction in the filtration rate of the kidneys. Over time the kidney becomes more scarred and BP becomes difficult to control. Diabetes is the most common cause of kidney disease requiring dialysis and transplantation. Regular follow with your primary care physician is important.

The ultimate "consequence" of diabetic kidney disease is kidney failure and possibility of dialysis or kidney transplant. At this stage, best we can do is help the child control his/her risk factors which is to keep as normal blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol as possible.

Dr. Susan Wingo answered:

How is diabetic kidney disease diagnosed?

Lab tests

Urine should be checked for protein once a year with a test for microscopic levels of albumin (often called micro-albumin). Blood should be checked for BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen) to measure the levels of nitrogen-containing waste levels. Higher levels mean the kidney is not as efficient as it should be. A calculated value called eGFR reflects the kidneys' ability to remove waste products.

Dr. Andrew P. Ho answered:

what as the maximum dosage of topamax usually prescribed to treat bipolar disorder? I am currently taking a total of 100mg a day.

FDA approved maximum

Bipolar_disorder
Dose needs to be adjusted to discover optimal individual patient dose. I always find it misguided to use the FDA approved dose range as Gospel in clinical practice. Your 100mg is below maximum that has been studied by drug company but it does not mean it is helpful or safe to go higher. You need to work closely with your doctor to figure out the right dose for you.
