Diabetic patients are more prone to develop kidney problem than non-diabetic patients. Also among all the causes of kidney failure, diabetes alone constitute almost 50% of the etiology of renal failure. Hence it is essential to prevent the development and retard the the progression of diabetic nephropathy. A diabetic should atleast get his routine urine examination and get serum urea and creatinine done every 6 months.
