Diabetic Kidney Disease

Diabetic Kidney Disease

One of the more common long-term complications of diabetes is kidney damage. Also known as diabetic nephropathy or diabetic kidney disease (DKD), this condition is a result of vascular abnormalities that accompany diabetes and increases mortality risk. Furthermore, diabetes mellitus is a main risk factor for end-stage renal disease (ESRD), the most advanced stage of kidney disease.
