Kidney Disease: Biggest Threat for Type-2 Diabetic Patients
Biggest threat that type-2 diabetic patients face is kidney disease. This is the reason that a team of researchers from the University of Washington has suggested that diabetics should keep their kidneys healthy.
They have carried out a study and have concluded that kidney disease increases the risk of early death. The Journal of the American Society of Nephrology published study has revealed that though it is known by the NHS that kidney disease is risky for the lives of diabetics, they are not taking essential steps in detecting the disease in diabetics.
Study researchers have evaluated the official figures. From the official data of 2012 they have found just seven people out of 10 who have been checked properly. A combination of proper medical checkups and lifestyle changes is the best way to deal with diabetics.
On the other hand, if leniency is adopted in managing the condition then the disease can prove fatal for life. Kidney problem, problems in eyes and lower limb are some of the problems that can be caused by poor management of the condition.
"People with type-two diabetes have many other risk factors for cardiovascular disease and mortality, so we expected that kidney disease would predict a part, but not a majority, of higher mortality", said lead researcher Dr. Maryam Afkarian.
