The kidneys are a vital human organs that serve to regulate electrolytes, acid–base balance, and even blood pressure by balancing salt and water in the body. It acts as the natural filter of the blood in our bodies that remove wastes which are transported out from our bodies through our urine. Diabetes can damage this function.

Incidentally, it can also help prevent other diabetic complications such as blindness and heart attack which are also caused by the imbalance of sugar levels in the blood.

It must be noted though that eating ampalaya, drinking the plant extract or taking ampalaya capsules are not meant to cure diabetes but mainly to minimize or prevent the complications arising from diabetes.
