Complications of diabetes
Uncontrolled diabetes causes thousands of deaths in the world annually. The figures are growing at an alarming rate.
But, apart from death, uncontrolled diabetes involves very serious complications which affect people’s quality of life: brain haemorrhages, heart attacks, blindness, kidney failure or amputations of the lower extremities are just a few of the effects.
Which are the most frequent complications of diabetes?
Diabetes can cause health complications:
- High blood pressure
- Blindness and vision problems
- Brain haemorrhage
- Heart attack
- Kidney problems
- Amputation of lower extremities
Genetic information allows us to act in anticipation and take measures. The sooner we know our genetic risk, the more time we’ll have to prevent diabetes.
