Diabetes Mellitus is a condition of elevated blood glucose (sugar). Prolonged elevation of blood glucose causes damage to blood vessels.
The Bad News! Diabetes can be a devastating disease if there are complications. These complications can cause kidney failure, amputation, painful nerve damage, blindness, heart attack or stroke. The location of blood vessel damage determines what complication(s) occur.
The Good News! Complications can be avoided! Risk factors that lead to diabetic complications can be identified and corrected. With a little effort from the patient and the diabetes team, bad things from diabetes can be prevented.
