Hello, my name is Michelle. I have a friend of mine who has high blood pressure and diabetes. His blood sugar level has been OK up until now. Unfortunately now his doctor says that his kidneys are badly damaged. I believe he s on medication for the high blood pressure and diabetes, but I don t know what the name of the medications are. He said that he doesn t know how things could ve gotten that bad because he said he hasn t changed any thing. I m kinda worried about. His only vice is sugar free vanilla ice, daily. Please help or give any suggestions.
