Hypertension and Diabetes
Microalbuminuria means a term to describe a moderate increase in the level of urine albumin. Normally, kidney filters albumin, if there is presence of albumin in urine then it a sign of presence of kidney diseases. The term microalbuminuria is replaced as moderately increased albuminuria by KDIGO (Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes). The collection of conditions involving problems the body have with the hormone insulin is known as Diabetes. Diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not produce any insulin or produces very less insulin and when the body doesn’t respond properly to insulin. Diabetes is of two types as type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes, the kind of diabetes seen in women during pregnancy is Gestational diabetes. A person affected with type 1 diabetes will not be able to produce insulin themselves and insulin must be supplied externally in order to maintain the blood sugar level. Most common type of diabetes affecting people is type 2 diabetes, where the person is insulin resistant or find any problem in producing enough insulin. This increased blood sugar level increases the blood pressure level. Thus, maintaining the blood sugar level is very important. Medications include balancing with foods and drinks of choice based on the individual. Depending on the type of diabetes and the insulin level in the blood the supply and medications about external insulin supply are decided.
