Kidney Failure on the Rise in Diabetics
A Canadian study says that cases of kidney failure among people with diabetes has risen dramatically.
The number of new cases of kidney failure jumped 114 per cent, from just under 1,100 in the first year to more than 2,100 cases in 2004, says the Canadian Institute for Health Information, adding that the incidence of Type 2 diabetes jumped during the same period.
