Does Insulin damages the kidney?

by Dr S Satish Kumar

Did you also think that Insulin damages the kidney? Don't just believe rumors; listen to experts to find out the truth. Tune in to hear Dr. S. Satish Kumar and Dr. Akshatha Kamath explain the facts in a clear and interesting talk. Be aware of these myths.

Well, one thing I would like to point out is that, regardless of the type of insulin we are using, it is genetically engineered to be similar to the insulin that is produced by our bodies. In fact, high blood sugar and long-term diabetes are the conditions that cause damage to kidneys, blood vessels, the nose, the heart, and other organs whenever a patient experiences these kinds of complications. Additionally, patients who are taking insulin or diabetes tablets often make the mistake of believing that their treatment is to blame for the harm that has occurred.
