In some people with diabetes, over time, high blood glucose levels can damage the masses of small blood vessels that filter waste from the blood and dispose of it in the urine. Unfortunately, early kidney disease has no symptoms and it is usually not until the damage is extensive do symptoms emerge. Symptoms of advanced kidney disease include:
- Swelling of ankles, feet and hands
- Shortness of breath
- High blood pressure
- Confusion or difficulty
- Poor appetite
- Nausea and vomiting
- Dry, itchy skin
- Keeping blood glucose levels at a healthy range, instructed by your doctor.
- Maintaining a preferred blood pressure level, instructed by your doctor.
- Starting an ACE inhibitor blood pressure medication, which has defensive benefits to the kidneys.
- Eating a low-protein diet
