Usually more than 5 years poorly controlled diabetes will begin to damage the kidney and renal functions will experience irreversible and rapid decline when clinical proteinuria occurs. Diabetes is characterized by high blood glucose level which will increase permeability of blood vessels, cause protein leakage in urine and glomerular sclerosis. High blood sugar can also damage small blood vessels in the whole body and reduce blood flow to the kidneys and this will affect normal functions of the kidneys.

Inadequate blood and oxygen supply to the kidneys will cause ischemia and hypoxia and if these conditions last for long time without any alleviation, renal intrinsic cells and tissues will be damaged and kidney functions will be gradually lost and lead to renal failure.

Kidney failure can be caused by many factors, primary and secondary, hereditary and acquired. But the most common causes of renal failure are diabetes mellitus, hypertension and glomerulonephritis.

Here we mainly talk about some factors on diabetes and kidney failure problems. Diabetes is the most common cause of kidney damages and it accounts for about 35% of all chronic renal disease. Persistent high level of blood sugar will damage renal vessels and gradually reduce kidney functions and in the end lead to kidney failure without proper and timely treatments.
