What is Diabetic Nephropathy?

Diabetic nephropathy occurs in people with diabetes. Diabetic nephropathy occurs when the kidneys are unable to filter the blood due to nephron damage. Symptoms include fatigue, headache, nausea, vomiting, loss in appetite, and swelling in different parts of the body.

Treatment for diabetic nephropathy includes keeping blood pressure low, keeping cholesterol levels low, and to eat healthy. ACE inhibitors and ARBs are commonly used to treat diabetic nephropathy. ACE inhibitors lower blood pressure and slows down diabetic nephropathy.
