Oh, perhaps that is agood thing. My kidneys or my liver( i don't know they are at honestly) have been hurting slightly and I was going to reply that at least for me it is due to my ongoing diabetes. I am glad you found out the problem an pray you get better. May God bless you and keep you and yours safe.

I am sorry to hear that Back problems can be really painful. As Graylin asked, what are they doing to you in way of treatment. You might want to join (if you haven't already) join Back Pain Connect.

I agree are so right. You could be going through an infection, which is easily treatable, but the longer you go, the more damage that is done to your kidneys.

A nephrologist is a "Kidney Dr". S/he specializes in the study of the filtering organ of the bloodstream called Nephrons within the kidney. In hemodialysis the dialysis machine takes the place of the nephrons which are damaged by diabetes or High blood pressure or both

(mine were weakened by, I believe, Metformin, and then further torn up by a kidney infection I didn't know I had until it was too late to head it off) It depends on your insurance but generally speaking you have to have your PCP refer you to a nephro.

Dena please get into your dr ASAP, it may be nothing but it could be something and with diabetes you do not want to risk it getting worse or not being able to do anything about it if you wait to long. Diabetes can effect your organs in different way. Pleases see you doctor.

I have kidney issues too. May need to go on dialysis soon, but as far as pain is concerned I have none in the area of my kidneys.

Pain is an indicator that something is wrong. GET TO YOUR DR AND GET YOURSELF CHECKED OUT ASAP Dena!

My mom had multiple kidney issues, I too am beggining to have some as well.
My immediate reccomendation would be to see your doctor and have some tests done. I have quartely kidney and liver function tests done due to other medications I'm on as well as a family history. Hopefully your doctor will have some answers for you soon! Good luck (owe and my first thought was a kidney stones)

Diabetics especially should consult their medical professionals whenever anything has changes, does not seem right, you are running a fever, have pains anywhere. The sooner you visit your dr the better able they will be to treat the problem. Personally I do not like to go to my dr with what I think is just a little thing that will pass but he keeps telling me that with diabetics nothing is little.

My husband has had this problem from time to time and each time he has it has been from passing a kidney stone. I would recommend you see a doctor ASAP to make sure or to make sure it isn't something else just as serious.
