Take good care of your KIDNEYS
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.
