What are the consequences of diabetic kidney disease in a child?

Unfortunately: No treatment can take diabetes out of the kidneys. This is a work in ongoing presearch in research. The kidneys are destined to fail in several years. Control of diabetes, BP & ace inhibitors as tolerated is the only treatment to delay dialysis. The only good thing about kidney failure here is becoming eligible for dual transplant, kidney & pancreas, which cures both kidney failure & diabetes too!
