Living With Type 2 Diabetes and Kidney Disease

Kidney Connection

If you have type 2 diabetes (T2D) and kidney disease, you’re three times more likely to die from a cardiovascular event like a heart attack or stroke. The good news is there are steps you can take to keep your heart and kidneys healthy.
