Caption: Prosthetic leg of a kidney dialysis patient who lost a leg due to diabetes. In people with diabetes, the excess glucose in the blood can attach to proteins in the blood vessels and cause them to become thicker and less elastic. The damaged vessels often result in blockages in the leg and leaky blood vessels in the kidney. Kidney dialysis, or haemodialysis, is required when the kidneys are no longer able to filter waste products from the blood properly.
