High Blood Sugar And How It Affects Kidneys: Check Blood Pressure Regularly, 10 Warning Signs!

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is common in people with diabetes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), US, “about 1 in 3 adults with diabetes have CKD”. People with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes can suffer from kidney diseases. Dr. Harish Dodeja, Consulting Nephrologist and Transplant Physician, Fortis Hospital Mulund, says, “All patients with diabetes are at risk of kidney disease. It depends on the control of diabetes and its associated blood pressure (BP).

Association with high blood sugar and high blood pressure

It is important for people with high blood sugar to get their kidney function checked regularly, in addition to regularly checking blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Dr Dodeja says, “As soon as you are diagnosed as a diabetic, you should get tested for blood pressure and you should visit a nephrologist and find out if kidney damage has already started. To reduce or control kidney damage, keep your BP in check (target BP should be less than 130/80), diabetes (HbA1c should be less than 7-7.2), control protein in urine (500 units per day medication with the use of protein excretion in the urine) of less than milligrams. If you do these things, you will slow down the damage that diabetes is doing to your kidneys.”

Have kidney problems? follow 3 steps

Dr. Dodeja also said that people with kidney problems or those with a tendency to kidney problems should do these three things:

1) Avoid overuse of painkillers that are of the NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) type
2) Stay away from Ayurvedic medicine containing heavy metals
3) Ensure adequate hydration to reduce the formation of kidney stones
