Every kidney is composed of approximately one million of nephrons.The nephrons can filter blood and remove wastes and extra fluid from body. However,high blood sugar levels can cause extra strain on kidneys.Over time,the nephrons will become worn out and lose the normal function, thus leading to kidney damage.

As the diseased kidneys fail to remove fluids from body, it can result in fluid retention in body.When people lying on bed at night,fluid will accumulate in eyelid.Therefore,the patients with Diabetes often have eyelid swelling in the morning.

However,not all cases of swelling in diabetes are related to kidney damage in diabetes.There are also some other medical conditions which contribute to abnormal accumulation of fluid in body tissues.

Congestive heart failure

Eyelid swelling may be a side effect of certain drugs like some oral hypoglycemic agents. In addition,some patients who start insulin therapy recently may also experience edema,but this generally goes away within a few weeks.
