Diabetic kidney disease doesn't usually appear until you have had diabetes for at least 10 years. But it is important to be tested for any kidney damage if you have diabetes, as early detection can lead to onset delay or prevention.

If you have diabetes, it is extremely important to manage your blood sugar and follow your doctor's treatment plan.
