Since 2000 there has been a 38% increase in diabetes related hospitalizations for residents under 45. This is alarming news and especially for the younger population of people. Diabetes not controlled can lead to many problems including kidney disease. In fact about half of all kidney failures are related to uncontrolled diabetes.
This analysis called PHC4 also found about 86% of the cases reviewed were potentially preventable. Meaning if you control life style factors such as diet the disease is well managed, and you will avoid diabetic kidney disease.
