What complications can occur from diabetes?

ANSWER

When diabetes gets out of control, it can take a toll on your body. Too much sugar in your blood can damage nerves and blood vessels, which can lead to many different types of problems.

That sad, those complications aren’t set in stone for everyone with diabetes -- in fact, there’s a lot you can do to avoid them. Along with treatment, good health habits can help you keep your disease under control and keep other troubles at bay.
