How does Diabetes and Kidney Failure Relate to Each Other?

Q:

How does diabetes and kidney disease failure relate to each other?

A:

In the United States, diabetes is the No. 1 cause of kidney failure. It happens when your blood sugar levels are extremely high.

Generally, the diabetes-related kidney disease doesn’t show any signs at the early stage. As this condition progresses, the small blood vessel of your kidney will be injured and thus this organ’s ability to clean you blood is hindered.

Your legs and feet may swell due to the diabetes in later phases.
