Kidney disease is a potential complication of diabetes?

Over long periods of time, insufficiently controlled blood sugar can lead to kidney damage and data shows that diabetes account for more than one-third of chronic kidney disease.

This is perplexing!
Imagine having one disease and then insufficient management of it leads to an even more chronic disease.

Thankfully, dietary and lifestyle changes can manage both diabetes and kidney diseases in surprising ways even though they may not be possible to reverse kidney damage, these changes can help slow the degeneration of kidney diseases.

As if that were not enough- high blood pressure and heart disease are known risk factors for both kidney disease and diabetes. Thankfully there’s a diet that has been created to whelp known as the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH diet. The overall aim is to reduce blood pressure, it also helps to lower cholesterol and aid weight management.

The DASH diet requires eating fruits, vegetables, whole grain, low-fat dairy foods, poultry, fish, nuts, and beans, with a sole purpose of limiting intake of red meat, fat, sugar, and salt.
