Poor fuction: The diabetes Melitus affects the part of the kidney which filter urine. These are called glomeruli. The dibetese causes the fine blood vessel in the glomeruli to close down, resuting in that filterstion function gradualy decreases to a point that both kidneys stop working. Therefore urine accumulates in the blood. it can be detected by doing blood tests( urea,creatinine). This is permanant.
