DIABETIC NEPHROPATHY
Diabetic nephropathy (or diabetic kidney disease) is a progressive kidney disease, causing damage to the kidneys' glomeruli in the capillaries. It is this scarring of the glomeruli that impairs kidney function.

DAMAGED GLOMERULUS

The glomerulus is the part of the kidneys that clean your blood. Glomerular diseases include inflammation and/or scarring of the membrane tissue that acts as a filter in the kidney and separates wastes from the blood, which leads to kidney disease.
