Urology also known as genitourinary surgery, is the branch of medicine that focuses on surgical and medical diseases of the male and female urinary tract system and the male reproductive organs. Glucose control, heart-healthy habits and medications are the keys for good kidney health. Your risk of kidney disease is higher with diabetes.
If you have diabetes for 10 years or more, you are at most risk for kidney damage. Your greatest opportunity to avoid or slow damage is to safeguard your kidneys now. Your risk is highest when blood sugar control is poor. Keeping blood sugar levels in your target range is the key. This can lower your risk by 50 percent or more.
What you eat and drink can help slow down kidney disease. Some foods are better for your kidneys than others. Cooking and preparing your food from scratch can help you eat healthier. Healthy kidneys normally regulate the level of substances and water in the body, which come from what we eat and drink. If your kidneys are not working as well as they should, you may not be able to control this balance. You may therefore need to change what you eat and drink to help with this.
