Researchers were led by Dr. Amanda Adler from Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

The study was conducted on 22,000 men and women, with 517 of them having diabetes.

The men and women were all middle-aged or older at the start of the study.

They examined their diets to see if the diet would have any impact on their risk of kidney disease.

Researchers found that kidney disease was developed in only 4% of diabetics who consumed fish twice each week.

This compared to 18% of those diabetics who did not consume fish twice each week.

The study is published in the American Journal of Kidney Diseases.
