PDear Ms Jazcruz,

Please make sure that it is not due to heart condition. It could very well be due to skeletal etiology but it is better to rule out cardiac problems especially given the diabetes history. And also your doctor can prescribe medication that can be less damaging to your kidneys

I would recommend you to see your doctor to discuss this condition as soon as you can.

Thanks for your question
