What Is The Result Of Electrolytes Abnormal In Diabetic Kidney Disease
The diabetes Melitus affects the part of the kidney which filter urine. These are called glomeruli. The dibetese causes the fine blood vessel in the glomeruli to close down, resuting in that filterstion function gradualy decreases to a point that both kidneys stop working. Therefore urine accumulates in the blood. it can be detected by doing blood tests( ...Read more
What is the likelihood that glycosuria would occur in the absence of diabetes? Will glycosuria cause kidney damage? Would a UTI cause glycosuria?
A small minority: of people will have slight glycosuria, either normally or due to a genetic kidney disorder. It doesn't generally cause damage to the kidney; elevated glucose, however, will damage the kidney and many other organs. Discuss w/your doctor. Glycosuria can increase potential for uti, not the other way around unless your blood sugar increases. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What are the lipid tests that can be ordered in case of prolonged diabetes with developing of ischmic heart disease ?
Kidney failure: 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. Keep close contact with his/her physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the norm in early signs of kidney disease or damage, is it creatnine in blood or is it protein in urine ? Which one usually happens first ?
Bowel obstruction : Then vomiting, dehydration and loss of electrolytes. Gastric contents lost as vomit include acids, leading to a metabolic alkalosis (a 'contraction' alkalosis) with hypokalemia (low potassium), the baby needs to be admitted to a hospital, have intravenous fluids, a surgical consult and surgical repair of the pylorus to relieve the stenosis. It can be performed open or laprascopic. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
In cirrhosis does the presence of ascites always indicate decompensation and is this considered a serious complication and stage of the disease?
It is concerning: Ascites- buildup of fluid in the abdominal cavity- can be a sign of serious decompensation in the liver function. This is usually seen in the later stages of liver failure. If this is seen you should let your doctor know right away. This is associated with decreased survival. However if the cause of the liver damage is found early-& treated this can delay progression. Cirrhosis can't be undone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cirrhosis: Cirrosis, chronic hepatitis, may cause artifically elevated B12 as the liver store vit B12 and also prodcue the proteins that bind vit B12 in the blood. If the liver is sick, it can not produce the binding proteins and when measured vit B12 appears as it is elevated, as only the un-bound form of vit B12 is measured. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

3.5 to 5.0-5.5: Generally, the potassium should be kept within normal limits just as for a person without renal disease. Most labs have a normal range of 3.5 on the low end and may be anywhere from 5 to 5.5 on the high end. Potassium is less well eliminated by patients with kidney disease and generally with advanced kidney disease, the potassium intake must be reduced. ...Read more
High White Count: A high white count usually indicates that a patient has an infection. When your kidneys fail you are more susceptible to infection for a whole bunch of reasons. The consequence is not so much that your blood count is high, but that you likely have an undiagnosed infection and this needs to be investigated by your dialysis doctor/nephrologist or your primary care doctor. ...Read more
What is the normal urine output in a case of hypovolemic shock? What are the doctors looking for?
Oliguria: Oliguria or low urine output is defined as less than approximately 350 cc/day. Anuria or absence of urine is less than 50 cc day. Either of these conditions can occur in hypovolemic shock. Treatment of this condition usually requires large amounts of IV fluids and i usually would like to see at least 100/cc of urine per hour to indicate adequate repletion of volume losses. ...Read more
Homework?: There aren't 'the five causes' -- if your teacher asks for these, try to find the textbook that he/she is using. Most important are orthostatic proteinuria (most common), leaky GBM (diabetes, amyloidoisis, membranous GN & its kindred, minimal change DZ / FSGS / any chronic kidney disease with hyperperfusion); most urinary tract infections, consider tumor. ...Read more
In what part of the body does uncontrolled hypertension most likely cause ischemia and loss of function?
Same as nondiabetic: With advancing diabetes, gastroparesis (stomach does not move/function well) can predispose to gastritis. Other causes are same as nondiabetic: helicobacter pylori (bacteria), alcoholism, chronic use of antiinflammatory drugs/chemo, bile reflux, even stress can cause chronic gastritis symptoms and removing the cause will allow healing in few wks, with good nutrition. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Protien malnutrition: Albumen is an acute phase reactant and it is difficult to interpret well in the critically ill. That being said, very low albumen can indicate protein malnutrition, making it more difficult to heal wounds, makes drug delivery less reliable (some drugs bind to albumen for transport), make pulmonary edema harder to treat... The list is long. For that reason, we generally feed patients earlier now. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've hypertension and I have proteinurea and i'm not diabetic, the presence of proteins in urine is it due to kidney disease or to hypertension itself?
Proteinuria: Long standing poorly controlled hypertension can cause mild proteinuria even with normal kidney function. But moderate to severe proteinuria due to hypertension is generally associated with abnormal kidney function. suggest you ask your doctor to measure the amount of proteinuria (called random urine protein to creatinine ratio) and refer you to a nephrologist with abnormal result! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
20-40%: About 40% of type 1 diabetes patients with kidney disease will develop kidney failure within 20 years without strict blood pressure and glucose control. About 20% of type 2 diabetes patients with kidney disease will develop kidney failure within 20 years, but blood pressure control has seemed to be less effective in completely stopping progression in these patients. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
a progressive damaging effects to capillaries in/near glomeruli leading to local inflammatory change and scarring with subsequent malfunction in filtering the blood for reabsorbing useful blood components and excreting the unwanted metabolic wastes, which exact causes are still unclear, though, long-term high blood sugar is the culprit. This is usually a slow ...Read more
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
