What do you advise if I have chronic kidney disease secondary to dm?

Proteinuria. Check for your urine for proteinuria (p). Patients with p have a higher incidence of stroke, kidney failure and heart disease related to the severity of their p. You need to see a nephrologist (n) and have a 24 hour urine collection done for a creatinine clearance and protein. If you have p, ask the n to start you on meds to reduce it to avoid complications in the future. Good luck.
