Re: Kidney health

It could affect your kidneys so best to try hard to keep the Diabetes under really good control. Ask your GP to measure your kidney function blood rest every year to keep an eye on it.
The cholesterol itself doesn’t affect the kidney function but can lead to heart disease if high.
