The article discusses the association between diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD). For 45% of patients who receive dialysis therapy, diabetes is the primary cause of their kidney failure. Moderate to severe CKD is estimated to be found in 15-23% of patients with diabetes. Management of diabetes includes many areas that may be influenced by the severity of a patient's kidney dysfunction.
