Diabetic nephropathy

Diabetic nephropathy is a disease/damage caused by diabetes to your kidneys, which in severe cases can lead to kidney failure. Waste products from our blood are filtered by tiny blood vessels present in our kidneys, and they can be destroyed by high sugar levels in our body. The body retains the excess salts and water needed, which leads to weight gain and ankle swelling. This leads to kidney dysfunction or failure in later stages. No symptoms appear in the early stages, so regular urine tests are needed to detect kidney damage.

Diabetes can also damage nerves, which can lead to difficulty emptying the bladder and create pressure that injures your kidney. Prolonged retention of urine in the bladder leads to infections because bacterial growth in urine with high blood sugar level is high.

About 10-40% of people with type 2 diabetes and 30% of patients with type 1 diabetes will develop kidney failure over time.
