It might be challenging for people to comprehend how renal disorders, high blood pressure, and diabetes interact. This interaction is in a downward spiral. Both diabetes and high blood pressure are mostly lifestyle disorders that directly affect the kidneys. The kidney disease progressively gets worse as a result of time.
But it’s important to realize that this vicious cycle doesn’t develop in a human body overnight; rather, it happens gradually and frequently without the sufferers’ knowledge. It is a slow-moving decline that might go unnoticed for a long time because the disease typically reveals itself at an advanced stage, making treatment challenging. Loss of weight, anorexia, weariness, swollen ankles, hands, and feet, blood in the urine, sleeplessness, itchy skin, cramping in the muscles, and headaches are all signs of CKD.
The “diabetic capital of the world” is India, which accounts for 17% of the overall worldwide burden of diabetes. There are currently over 80 million diabetics in the nation, and during the next 25 years, that figure is expected to rise to 135 million.
The third-highest health risk factor in Asia is high blood pressure, which is not far behind. According to estimates, 25% of people in rural regions and 33% of urban residents in India, respectively, suffer from excessive blood pressure.
