aakpRENALIFE-cover.jpgHelping keep patients' feet looking and feeling healthy is a priority when managing diabetes, a leading cause of kidney disease.  Melinda Martin-Lester, RVM's Compliance Officer, recently penned an article for aakpRENALIFE magazine's education column on steps you can take to take care of your feet when you have diabetes. 

According to her article, "in 2011, almost 49,000 of the new ESRD patients had diabetes as the primary cause of ESRD.  People with diabetes must be aware of how to prevent foot problems, recognizing problems early, and working with your dialysis team to receive the right treatment when problems occur."
