Hello Emmy, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Diabetes is a chronic disease where a person's blood sugar level is higher than normal which can cause many complications. This complication occurs because of high blood sugar levels which can damage blood vessels and nerves so that the symptoms and complications that arise also vary. The following symptoms that appear in diabetes are:
Frequent feeling thirsty Frequent urination, especially at night Often feel hungry even though you have eaten Weight loss for no apparent reason Lack of sight Blurred Wounds that are difficult to heal. Frequent infections, for example in the gums, skin, vagina, or urinary tract infections. Itching Complaints of a swollen eye and swollen feet does not mean that a person has kidney failure. What is meant by kidney failure is where the condition of someone who is experiencing chronic kidney damage, if it has been said that kidney failure is usually a person requires a substitute therapy for kidney assignments for example by doing routine dialysis. To determine impaired renal function, blood testing is usually performed, namely examination of renal function: urea and creatinine.
In the early stages of kidney failure may not show symptoms, but if it continues at a later stage can cause several symptoms, for example:
Nausea Vomiting Reduced urination Red skin Prolonged itching Decreased appetite Decreased weight or even increased due to fluid retention. There is blood in the urine. Swelling of the ankles, legs, or hands due to fluid buildup Chest pain, especially if there is a buildup of fluid in the heart tissue Shortness of breath, if there is a buildup of fluid in the lungs. High blood pressure that is difficult to control. Pale erectile dysfunction in men. Eyes and swelling are not always caused by kidney failure, to ensure that further examination is needed in the form of direct physical examination, and supporting examinations, for example blood tests. If previously examined kidney function, and showed normal kidney function results this condition is probably not caused by kidney failure.
Swollen eyes and feet can be caused by other conditions for example:
Allergic reactions Swollen feet can also be caused by heart failure Other kidney disease infections For this reason, if these complaints do not improve or get burdensome, you should consult a specialist doctor who has been treating diabetes.
