Nephropathy

***** searches for information in diabetic nephropathy yielded a limited ********** of *****formation concerning the disease, its diagnosis and its treatment. What was evident was the fact that it is another concern for those individuals who have been diagnosed w*****h diabetes, ***** further, that proper (and early) ***** can do much to stop the disease's progression and in many cases will prevent the disease.

***** ***** presents itself in ***** with ***** but it is closely related to nephrolithias***** which is a common condition that affects "nearly five percent of U.S. men ***** women during *****ir lifetimes" FN1. Nephrolithiasis includes a number of different nephropathy diseases. "Nephrolithiasis specifically refers to calculi in the kidneys (including) both renal ***** ureteral calculi (ureterolithiasis)" FN2 Ureteral calculi almost always originate in the kidneys, although *****y may continue to grow once they lodge in the ureter. ***** is commonly referred ***** as kidney stones, but o*****r problems ***** occur pertaining to the ***** including two of the most prevalent conditions related to *****is, which are IgA ***** and diabetic nephropathy.

According to ***** National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse (NKUDIC) IgA nephropathy *****s "when IgA - a protein that helps us fight infections ***** settles in the kidneys" FN3.

Diabetic *****, on the other hand, occurs ***** there is too much ***** and/or blood leak*****g from the kidney into the ***** stream. Many of the symptoms for both diseases ***** very similar.

Symptoms can include "swelling in the hands and feet, nausea, fatigue, headaches, ***** sleep *****" FN3.

Approximately 20 - 30 ***** of individuals with diabetic nephropathy suffer ***** failure while 25 percent of IgA nephropathy sufferers ***** suffer kidney failure within 10 to ***** years of diagnosis. Nephrolithiasis produces a calculi that ***** "be prevented in most patients by ***** use of a simplified evaluati*****, reasonable dietary and fluid recommendations, ***** directed pharmacologic **********" FN1.

Dia*****tic nephropathy is normally referred to as diabetic kidney d*****e*****e and it can lead to kidney failure. "Diabetic nephropathy ***** in its earliest stage with low levels ***** albumin (microalbuminuria) in the urine" FN4. Low ***** of albumin can be detected by a number of methods ***** three of the most common being; ***** spot urine test, a 24-hour urine sample and a three ***** six month urine *****. "The ***** practical method of screening for microalbuminuria is to assess the albumin*****-creatinine ratio with a spot urine test" FN4.

Once ***** diagnosis has been made early treatment ***** help to control the progress of the disease and ***** times will stave off kidney failure for a number of years. Thorp's study showed that "*****re is good evidence ***** early treatment delays or prevents the onset of diabetic *****, or diabetic ***** d*****ease" *****. Early treatments can include a change in diet, exercise, improved blood sugar control, pharmaceuticals and even a regime of vitamins.

A team of investigat*****s for the journal Diabetes Care "demonstrated that vitamins C and E, along with mineral supplementation (including magnesium) appear
