Complications of Diabetes

The full impact of diabetes is often overlooked. While some individuals with diabetes have physical symptoms and noticeable signs of high blood sugar, some are asymptomatic (showing no symptoms). High blood glucose damages both large and small blood vessels. Damage to these vessels can lead to complications that affect the whole body.

Stroke, heart attack, nerve damage (neuropathy), eye disease (retinopathy), kidney problems (nephropathy) and peripheral arterial disease are some of the complications of diabetes. You can reduce your risk of complications by controlling your blood glucose. Blood sugars can be managed through dietary adjustments, increasing physical activity and/or taking medication/insulin as prescribed. Your health care team will work with you to create an individualized plan to meet your needs.

I always scare to listen about diabetes. Its horror.
