However, with the progression of illness condition, various symptoms like high blood pressure, fatigue, weakness, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, itching, easy bruising, chest pain, bleeding and so on.

These symptoms occur because of decreased kidney function, but in turn they make bad influence on illness condition. From this point of view, bringing these symptoms under control is of great significance.

Since diabetes mellitus is the root cause of diabetic nephropathy, effective control of diabetes must be a part of the treatment for kidney disease which occurs due to diabetes mellitus.
