Take good care of your KIDNEYS

Diabetes Care Guide (English) - - RETAIL NEWS -

Un­con­trolled di­a­betes can cause kid­ney dis­ease (nephropa­thy). Blad­der and kid­ney in­fec­tions can dam­age your kidneys. Watch for cloudy, bloody or foul smelling urine, pain dur­ing uri­na­tion or fre­quent and ur­gent trips to the wash­room. If you sus­pect an in­fec­tion, see your doc­tor. If you smoke your risk for kid­ney dis­ease is greater.

How to pro­tect your kidneys

● Keep your blood glu­cose and blood pres­sure as close to the tar­gets as pos­si­ble.

● Have your kid­ney func­tion checked when you are di­ag­nosed, then once a year.

● Eat well-bal­anced meals and limit foods high in un­healthy fats.
