Complications of Diabetes

If diabetes is poorly controlled over a long period of time, almost every part of your body can be affected.  Damage can occur to large and small blood vessels as well as nerves.  This damage can cause complications to your eyes, heart, kidneys and sexual organs to mention a few. 


The good news is that research tells us the better you are able to control your diabetes, the less likely you are to get any of these complications.  If any complications have already started, you can slow the progression of them.
