Guest Berta


I have a vet with diabetes mellitus and apparent renal disease which I believe is a secondary complication of his DMII.

I have done some research and found an Article at NCBI web site (Entrez Pub Med) that shows the relationship of diabetes mellitus in 150 DM patients to their abnormal r4nal pathology to include 19 % of them had developed renal cysts.

The above vet has been diagnosed with renal cysts.

The article however is titled " Renal Lesions in elderly patients with diabetes mellitus"

75 % were found to have renal parenchymal damage (diabetic neuropathy) , 16 had chronic renal failure and pyelonephritis,and urolithiasis was found in 21 % and 14 % respectively.

19% were found to have renal cysts.

Question- the article seems to suggest that renal cysts are actually lesions-

Also another treatise from Dr. Justin Siegal, MD, regarding Cystic diseases of the kidneys states that

"simple cysts are the most common cystic renal lesions."

I quess I am surprised to see that renal cysts can also be classified as lesions- if so this supports the veteran's claim to get renal disfunction as secondary to his DMII.

Does anyone agree? Hope Joel answers. Thanks, Berta
