Diabetes Mellitus (DM) has become an important public health problem all over the globe. As per the International Diabetes Federation Atlas (IDFA) for 2015, about 69 million people in India and over 415 million people across the globe are suffering from diabetes. The diabetic patients are predisposed to higher rates of kidney stone formation which is a risk factor. DM is a metabolic disease that causes renal failure in diabetic patient. DM is the common cause of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). The accumulation of uremic toxins and increased parathyroid hormone levels in patients with Chronic Renal Failure (CRF) cause insulin resistance in tissues, particularly skeletal muscle tissues. The control of diabetes and early treatment for the risk factors of diabetes are very important in preventing nephropathy.
