Diabetes Complications

  • Diabetes and Heart Disease
    Most of us know that diabetes can lead to severe complications, such as blindness, kidney disease and amputations. But did you know that diabetes also greatly increases the risk of cardiovascular disease?
  • Diabetes and Heart Disease
    Diabetes affects the cardiovascular system, but many problems aren't apparent until a person has a heart attack or stroke.
  • Diabetes and High Blood Pressure
    If you have diabetes, you are twice as likely to have high blood pressure. Untreated, high blood pressure can raise your risk for heart disease.
  • Diabetic Foot Problems
    Diabetes can damage the nerves in your feet, as well as lead to blood vessel disease. These conditions make it more difficult to notice when you injure your foot or develop a sore.
  • Diabetic Retinopathy and Other Eye Problems
    Diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of blindness in American adults. It is caused by changes in the blood vessels of the retina.
  • Overview of Clinical Complications of Diabetes
    Heart disease, high blood pressure, and kidney disease are some of the complications of diabetes.
  • Special Foot Care for Diabetes
