November is National Diabetes Awareness Month!

Did you know diabetes is a leading cause of kidney disease? Let's spread awareness about the importance of managing diabetes to protect our kidneys. πŸ’™πŸ‘₯

Here's a simplified explanation of how diabetes can contribute to kidney disease:

πŸ’‘High Blood Sugar Levels: In diabetes, the body has difficulty regulating blood sugar levels. Persistent high levels of glucose in the blood can damage the small blood vessels in the kidneys over time.

πŸ’‘Damage to Glomeruli: The kidneys contain tiny blood vessels called glomeruli that filter waste and excess fluids from the blood to form urine. The high levels of glucose in diabetes can damage these glomeruli, leading to a condition called glomerulosclerosis.

πŸ’‘Increased Blood Pressure: Diabetes can also contribute to an increase in blood pressure. High blood pressure puts additional strain on the already compromised blood vessels in the kidneys, accelerating the progression of kidney damage.

πŸ’‘Inflammation and Scarring: The chronic damage to the kidneys triggers an inflammatory response, and over time, scar tissue (fibrosis) may develop. This scarring interferes with the normal functioning of the kidneys.

πŸ’‘Protein Leakage: Healthy kidneys filter the blood but keep important proteins in the bloodstream. In diabetic nephropathy, damaged kidneys may allow proteins like albumin to leak into the urine, a condition known as proteinuria.

πŸ’‘Progression to Chronic Kidney Disease: If left uncontrolled, the cumulative damage can progress to chronic kidney disease (CKD), and in severe cases, it may lead to end-stage renal disease (ESRD), where the kidneys fail to function adequately.
