Choices: Despite the difficulties, expense and hard work, you are much better off caring for your current organs with your diabetes. If you end up with damaged kidneys despite your best diabetes care efforts, then you can rest assured you can care for your new transplanted organs, (also a lot of work, difficulties and expense). Find a diabetes support group, get involved in your care. Good luck.
