Diabetes Complications

Over time, high blood glucose can have negative effects on the body, potentially leading to a range of health issues commonly referred to as complications.

These complications develop because high glucose levels can damage blood vessels and nerves, affecting various organs. Common complications associated with diabetes include heart disease, chronic kidney disease (CKD), nerve damage leading to foot problems, and vision loss.

Fortunately, these complications can often be delayed or even prevented with careful diabetes management. This includes routine medical checkups, regular blood sugar monitoring, adherence to prescribed medications, and lifestyle changes such as eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise.
