Management of Diabetes for Preventing Kidney Failure?
Prefer foods lower in fats, sugar/salt and calories and higher in fiber. Focus on fruits, green vegetables and whole grains. Regular physical activity, take medicines and have regular doctors visits.
With time, raised blood sugar can damage blood vessels in the kidneys as well as nephrons making them not work as well as they should. Many people with diabetes also develop high blood pressure, which can damage kidneys too.
People can develop type 1 diabetes at any age, from early childhood to adulthood, but the average age at diagnosis is 13 years. An estimated 85% of all type 1 diagnoses take place in people aged under 20 years.
Regaining weight must be under dietician observation with balanced nutritious meals.
