Each year in the United States, tens of thousands of people with diabetes experience kidney failure. And there are not many signs that their kidneys are getting damaged until it is too late. Some good news, though, is that people who have diabetes can make changes that will protect their kidneys. Doctors have discovered that a low-fat diet with a lot of nutritious vegetables and lean meats—plus a moderate amount of exercise—helps keep blood vessels healthy and can even remove plaque. So people who make these kinds of lifestyle changes may be saving their kidneys as well as their lives.

35 HEALTH CHECK-UP IN A CUP When you visit the doctor, you might be asked to give a urine sample. A urine sample is a simple way for a doctor to get a lot of information about what is going on inside your body. The urine is usually sent to a laboratory where it is analyzed. Laboratory technicians measure all kinds of substances in urine. Some of the measurements are done simply by dipping special strips of paper into the urine. The paper will turn different colors if certain substances are present.

A person with a UTI might experience pain or burning while urinating; feeling the urge to urinate more often than usual; urinating only small quantities at a time; urine that is cloudy, not clear; urine that is tinged with red, which is a sign of blood; pain or pressure in the lower part of the abdomen or back; and fever. If you notice any of these things, a simple visit to the doctor, where you will leave a urine sample, can reveal whether a UTI is the culprit. The urine sample, when studied by laboratory technicians, may show signs of infection.
