>So if you’re diagnosed with diabetes
should you then immediately be referred to a nephrologist.>No. Most of the time
the kidneys initially will not be affected and usually the primary care
physician will determine whether you need referral to a to a nephrologist or
not.>So how do I know then that I need to go see your doctor?>Well there are
symptoms that can be attributed to diabetes with the high sugars you end up
with frequent urination, because the sugar induces a urine will increase
urine flow that results in being a little dehydrated, so thirst is a major
issue in type 1. Actually since they lack insulin and sugar is the main fuel for
ourselves they can’t get the fuel inside the cell. So the patient’s actually are
starving they start losing weight and then being thirsty and urinating quite a
bit. In type 2 you don’t necessarily lose weight in fact most of those patients
will be overweight but you will have an increased thirst and and increased your
urination.>There’s always this this thinking process and I remember this –
you have a special drink monitor your glucose levels for two hours and that
helps you tell whether or not you have diabetes it’s it’s it’s a wonderful test
that we hear about but that’s not the only one else that…>The old glucose
tolerance test however there’s a another test that hemoglobin a1c which is a an
average sort of speak it, gives you an average of the sugar levels over the
previous three months and normally it’s less than 5.5 or so.>What is that
a1c number and then how does that how does that run how does that…>Well

deemed to be pre-diabetic above that now you’re most likely diabetic.
