Neither: What an odd question. Medications? The overwhelming likelihood is that the diabetes caused the problem. Twynsta (and furosemide too, really) is actually an antihypertensive drug; you neglected to mention the hypertension. HTN & diabetes are the 2 most common causes of kidney disease. The 2 together are a real double whammy. Knowledge is power, & right now you are powerless. Arm yourself.
