Dr Hossam Mawafi, a critical cases professor at Kasr Al-Ainy Medical School, confirmed that the kidneys are one of the most vital organs affected by diabetes.

Mowafi said during his presentation of the “Sabahak Masri” program, broadcast on MBC Egypt, that the reason for the impact of diabetes on kidney health is due to disturbed blood sugar levels.

The intensive care professor added that high blood sugar leads to damage to the blood vessels that feed the kidneys and, with the lack or interruption of the flow of blood that carries oxygen to them, increases the risk of diabetic nephropathy.
