For those with type 2 diabetes, you are at a much increased risk for chronic kidney disease. The National Kidney Foundation recently hosted a web chat with actress Debbie Allen where the focus was on raising awareness for those at risk, especially those who are either diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or prediabetic.
As one participant pointed out, most people aren’t aware of the dangers of kidney disease until they are diagnosed with it. This is something that needs to change if we are to save people from what is often a very preventable form of the disease in type 2 diabetes. Much of the advice here applies to those who aren’t diabetic, have another form of kidney disease, or are a perfect picture of health.
This is something you can (and should) get out ahead of!
