Why Diabetes is most dangerous?

High blood sugar levels affect your nervous and circulatory system, putting your eyes at risk. Diabetics are at a risk of diabetic retinopathy, cataract, glaucoma and even blindness.

The high levels of sugar in your blood, coupled with a faulty circulatory system affects your nerves and blood vessels. This in turn damages the white matter in your brain, putting you at risk of a stroke, peripheral neuropathy, lack of concentration and losing consciousness.

Amputation is a very real risk in people with diabetes. Due to the effect this disease has on your circulatory system, your limbs get a very low supply of blood and nervous impulses. This might lead to the limb dying and therefore having to be amputated.

Another common ill effect of diabetes is nerve damage. Seen most often in the limbs of a person, nerve damage may lead to gangrene and, often, amputation.

Due to its effect on your brain, diabetics could also suffer from confusion and difficulties with cognition.

Diabetes is known to affect your dental health. The excessive sugar in your blood can damage the nerve endings in your teeth causing them to fall out or get decayed.

Diabetes affects your heart. It leads to build up of plaque in your arteries and can even cause a heart attack.

Diabetes can affect your kidney's ability to filter wastes from your blood too. It leads to a condition known as diabetic neuropathy where your kidneys start to malfunction and eventually fail.

Diabetes and hypertension go hand in hand. The condition can lead to high blood pressure since it affects your circulatory system and can eventually affect your heart.

High blood sugar also affects your sex life. The low amount of blood circulating in your body tends to lower how strong your erection is and the nerve damage leads to lowered sensation in those areas.

Finally, the risk of suffering from a stroke is also quite high. Due to the fact that high blood glucose levels lead to an increase in plaque in your blood stream -- that may eventually lead to an aneurysm. The possibility of suffering from a stroke becomes very real. more

Good information Neelima. Complications in a long standing Diabetes are unavoidable. If your Diabetes is well controlled damages may not be serious or can be taken care off by proper and timely action but one must be on guard always. Keep your Glycosated Hb as near to normal as possible and below 7. I don't know but I think Diet Control plays a vital role. Can anyone suggest some Ayurvedic or other remedies to overcome these complications? more
