Diabetic kidney disease, otherwise known as diabetic nephropathy is a serious kidney-related complication due to type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Diabetic nephropathy affects the capacity of your kidneys to do their standard function of removing waste items and excess fluid from your body. The most ideal approach to counteract diabetic nephropathy is by keeping a healthy lifestyle and treating your diabetes and hypertension.
Your kidney disease may advance to kidney failure, and can progress into a serious condition. When the final stage comes, your treatment choices are dialysis or a kidney transplant.
