Diabetes kidney disease is one of serious complications of diabetes. In its early stage, it does not cause any symptom. Microalbumin is the first sign of kidney damage, but it is not easy to notice it. Therefore, the patients with a long history of diabetes are recommended to take microalbumin test regularly. Diabetes kidney disease is divided into five stages. In the first two stages, as the kidney structure has not changed yet, the kidney damage can be reversed completely.
Now you have serious protein leakage. It indicates that your diabetes kidney disease has at least progressed into stage 3. At this stage, the filtering units (glomeruli) have been damaged severely and even necrotic. As a result, a large amount of proteins will leak through glomeruli, thus resulting in protein leakage. Although the kidney damage can not be reversed completely, proper treatment can stop it from progressing into next stage.
As kidney damage is done, the therapy you choose should be able to restore the impaired kidney structure and stop further kidney function decline.
Immunotherapy is an alternative treatment for people with diabetes kidney disease along with protein leakage. This therapy can suppress inflammatory response and stop further renal fibrosis. Also, it can improve the sensitivity to insulin and enhance pancreatic function. An important role of immunotherapy is that it can stimulate the regeneration of impaired kidney structure and improver renal function. Once the kidney structure is restored, the kidneys will stop leaking proteins.
