Diabetes is one of the most common health conditions that are currently on rise all over the world. But very few people are aware of the fact that this disease increases your chance of getting affected with other serious health complications. The long-term health issues of diabetes usually develop slowly which in the mean time may turn into life-threatening illness. One thing that should be kept in mind is that the longer you suffer from diabetes and the less controlled your blood sugar levels are, the higher is the risk of complications.
The body organs that are affected in diabetics with uncontrolled blood sugar and improper management include that nerves (diabetic neuropathy), kidneys (diabetic nephropathy), feet (diabetic foot), eyes (glaucoma) and heart (hypertension and cardiovascular diseases). Being affected with this disease also put you at greater risk of bone disorders, skin problems, digestive problems, sexual dysfunction and oral health issues.
The only way to prevent the onset and control health complications in diabetics is with correct treatment, lifestyle modifications and healthy living.
