Diabetes is not just about the ‘Sugar’ level rise and fall in the body, but can lead to other health complications as well. Listed below are 7 adverse effects of diabetes on your body which can be managed if treated right -
- Effects Heart Health
Chest pain, high cholesterol, narrowing of the arteries due to fatty deposits, high blood pressure; all can be a result of uncontrolled diabetes. Many of these are silent conditions, only becoming apparent when you are having a major cardiac event.
2. Effects Kidneys
Early in diabetes, the parts of the kidneys that work to filter the blood may be damaged. Hence, early testing for kidney disease, before it causes permanent damage is very important. Kidney disease may have no symptoms, or it may include a feeling of tiredness and general weakness; trouble sleeping, swelling or vomiting.
3. Effects Vision
Diabetes mellitus is a leading cause of blindness. Worldwide, 93 million people have diabetic retinopathy (DR), including 21 million with Diabetic Macular Edema (DME); another 300 million people are at risk. Both the eye conditions - DR and DME are commonly seen in the working-age population.
4. Effects Healing
Diabetes mellitus can cause wounds or sores in the skin to heal more slowly, which can result in people with diabetes being more susceptible to infections. Amputation (surgically cutting off a limb) is relatively common in uncontrolled diabetes.
5. Effects Dental Health
Many people get plaque on their teeth. Plaque is a sticky film that comes from chewing food. It is filled with germs. In diabetes, high blood sugar helps these germs grow. Diabetes mellitus can cause red, sore, or swollen gums that bleed when you brush your teeth. Other problems include bad breath, gum disease, or tooth loss. However, with time this can result in complete loss of your teeth.
6. Effects Nerves
Nearly 70 percent of people with diabetes mellitus will suffer from nerve damage. High blood sugar levels can harm nerves, resulting in numbness or loss of feeling in the feet, hands, or legs.
7. Effects Digestion
With the nerve damage that may be caused by poorly controlled diabetes, can come nausea, constipation , or diarrhea.
