Anemia and Decreased Appetite in Diabetic Kidney Failure

2014-02-23 07:07

Anemia and Decreased Appetite in Diabetic Kidney Failure  Diabetes is the most common cause of kidney failure, accounting for nearly 44% of new cases. When kidneys fail to function, a myriad of discomforts will occur. This article will explain the causes and management of anemia and decreased appetite in diabetic kidney failure.

Anemia in diabetic kidney failure

A person whose blood is low in red blood cells has anemia. Healthy kidneys produce a hormone called EPO, which stimulates the bone marrow to produce the proper number of red blood cells needed to carry oxygen to vital organs. However, long-term high blood glucose can impair kidneys, resulting in diabetic kidney failure.

The failed kidneys in Diabetes can not produce enough EPO. As a result, the bone marrow makes fewer red blood cells. Anemia occurs in diabetic kidney failure.

Anemia can be treated with a genetically engineered for of EPO. The EPO is usually injected under the skin two or three times a week. Many people with kidney disease need both EPO and iron supplements to raise hematocrit to a satisfactory level.

Decreased appetite in diabetic kidney failure

Decreased appetite is a common complaint in diabetic kidney failure. This condition can be attributed to a variety of causes.

High levels of waste products and toxins are the major culprit of decreased appetite in diabetic kidney failure. If the concentration of urea in gastrointestinal tract is high, the urea will be decomposed into ammonia. The ammonia may irritate the gastrointestinal tract, thus resulting in decreased appetite in diabetic kidney failure. In the morning, this complaint is especially serious due to relatively high level of urea in blood.

A low-protein diet can reduce the production of urea. It can help relieve poor appetite to some extent.

Both anemia and decreased appetite in diabetic kidney failure are caused by renal function decline and impairment of kidney structure. To control these conditions fundamentally, a treatment should be applied to restore the impaired small blood vessels in kidneys and enhance renal function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an effective treatment for diabetic kidney failure by restoring the impaired kidney structure.
