Diabetic kidney disease is a serious concern problem, requiring close attention. Within 20-25 years, as many as 25-40% of diabetic patients will begin showing signs of kidney disease. With diabetic kidney disease’s increased risk of disability and death, it is important for patients to understand the problem as well as how to decrease their risk. Interventions such as tight control of blood sugars, maintenance of a goal blood pressure as well as use of either an ACE Inhibitor or an Angiotensin Receptor blocker can help reduce patients’ risk from diabetic kidney disease.
