What about diabetic kidney disease and other diabetes complications?

If the steps you need to take to protect your kidneys sound overwhelming, keep this in mind; controlling your blood sugar and blood pressure can help to reduce the risk or severity of several other debilitating diabetes complications, including:

  • Vision loss (due to diabetic retinopathy)
  • Nerve damage (called diabetic neuropathy)
  • Stroke and heart attack (both of which can be fatal)
