Diabetic Retinopathy and Nephropathy
Diabetic retinopathy is caused by damage to the blood vessels in the tissue at the back of the eye (retina). Poorly controlled blood sugar is a risk factor. Early symptoms include floaters, blurriness, dark areas of vision and difficulty perceiving colours. Blindness can occur. Mild cases may be treated with careful diabetes management. Advanced cases may require laser treatment or surgery. The Nephropathy is also called as, Kidney damage. The kidney is damaged by diabetes then it’s called as diabetic nephropathy. The nephropathy has two types Nephritis and Nephrosis. The nephritis is an inflammatory kidney disease and Nephrosis is a non-inflammatory disease in the kidney. In severe cases, this leads to kidney failure. Actually, the kidneys have many tiny vessels to filter the blood from impurities. The high blood glucose will damage these kidney vessels and further, the kidney is not able to do the job precisely. The persons with high blood sugar level or a smoker will susceptible to nephropathy.
