Diabetic Kidney Failure with Headache and Protein in Urine

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-04-15 09:28

Diabetic kidney failure is one common long-term complication of diabetes. As the kidneys fail to function properly, a myriad of symptoms will appear. Headache and protein in urine are two common signs of diabetic kidney failure.

Headache in diabetic kidney failure

Headache can be attributed to several possible causes. High blood pressure is a common cause of this condition. Kidneys play a vital role in regulating blood pressure by producing renin. However, the diseased kidneys often produce more renin. Renin can contract blood vessels and also increase fluid retention in body, thus leading to high blood pressure.

If the patients with diabetic kidney failure start to dialysis recently, dialysis disequilibrium syndrome also can cause headache. Dialysis can eliminate the waste products from blood quickly. However, some harmful substances will linger in body tissues and cells. The fluid in body filters into body tissues and cells. If fluid enters into brain cells, it will cause dialysis disequilibrium syndrome. This condition can cause headache in diabetic kidney failure.

Protein in urine in diabetic kidney failure

Protein is a kind of important source of energy of the body. Glomeruli with tiny holes on them can filter out waste products from body and meanwhile keep proteins in body. However, in Diabetes, long-term high blood glucose, fatty toxicity, and glucose toxicity can impair the glomeruli. As a result, the proteins will pass through the holes of glomeruli, ending up in urine. Protein in urine will be the result in diabetic kidney failure. Once protein appears in urine, it means that the patients at least develop stage 4 Diabetic Nephropathy. If no effective treatment is applied, ESRD will come soon.
