Blue Promise: The Relationship Between Diabetes and Kidney Disease

How does having diabetes affect your kidneys?

Diabetes is more common in Texas than most other places in the country. That leaves Texans especially vulnerable to additional diabetic-related diseases. That’s why BCBSTX is focusing its community investment dollars to slow the spread of Chronic Diabetic Kidney Disease. In this edition of Blue Promise, Drs. McCoy and Lopez talk about the impact of diabetes on kidneys.

Blue Promise is an online video blog that aims to address complicated health issues with candid

conversations from subject matter experts. New editions are published regularly and are hosted by Dr.

Dan McCoy, President of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas.
