Fish & Diabetes

According to a new study out of the U-K, diabetes patients who eat fish at least twice a week have a lower chance of developing kidney disease.
British researchers studied the health records of five-hundred-seventeen people with diabetes.
Those who ate fish less than once a week were four times more likely to have protein in their urine.
That's one of the earliest signs of kidney disease, which is a known complication of diabetes.
The researchers speculate that eating fish may affect kidney function by helping the body better control its glucose level.
No analysis was done on which types of fish were best.
The results of the new study appear in the November issue of the American Journal of kidney diseases.
