Diabetes Complications

  1. 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?

  2. Diabetes and Heart Disease

    Diabetes affects the cardiovascular system, but many problems aren't apparent until a person has a heart attack or stroke.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Overview of Clinical Complications of Diabetes

    Heart disease, high blood pressure, and kidney disease are some of the complications of diabetes.

  7. Special Foot Care for Diabetes

    It's not high blood sugar, heart disease, or stroke that most often puts people with diabetes in the hospital. It's their feet.
