What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a condition that develops when your body has difficulty controlling the level of sugar in your blood. The condition is usually caused by a problem with your level of insulin, which is a hormone used to help regulate your blood sugar levels. When you have diabetes, your body either does not produce enough insulin or is unable to use the insulin your body produces effectively. This can result in low or high blood sugar levels, which can be incredibly dangerous for your health.
How Is Diabetes Linked to Kidney Conditions?
Having diabetes can raise your risk for developing kidney conditions, like chronic kidney disease and other complications. This is especially true if you have diabetes and do not properly manage your condition. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes can cause high levels of blood sugar, which can damage the inner linings of blood vessels. As a response to this damage, blood vessels layer on plaque inside, making it harder for blood to pass through and effectively “hardening” the blood vessels. When blood can’t reach the kidneys through these hardened blood vessels, the kidneys cannot complete their function of filtering the blood and removing toxins. Over time, the condition can worsen until your kidneys lose all function.
