Diabetes patients who eat fish twice a week or more can greatly lower their risk of developing kidney disease.
Kidney disease is a serious complication that diabetes patients have to live with, but eating fish, which is packed with omega-3 fatty acids has been proven to reduce this risk.
For the study, published in the November issue of American Journal of Kidney Diseases British researchers interviewed more than 22000 men and women all over the age of 50.
Of that group more than 550 were diabetics.
The researchers noted that people reporting that they ate fish more than 2 times each week, had less chances of having protein in their urine, a sure sign of kidney disease.
