Diabetes Complications






Once we have crossed the reversible stage of prediabetes and enter diabetes stage, certain changes start developing in our body. These changes occur due to high blood sugar level with instability in the hormones as well as blood vessels and nerves. When these changes become permanent in the body it develops into serious Diabetes Complications and body indicates these changes by steady symptoms.

Symptoms of the Diabetes Complications

  • Diabetic retinopathy shows symptoms of pain in the eyes and may even result in loss of vision.
  • Renal (kidney) disease shows symptoms of swelling (edema) in the feet and legs. It then passes over total body and as the disease progresses, blood pressure also increases.
  • Tingling, burning, numbness, tightness, shooting or stabbing pain in the hands, feet or other parts of your body, especially at night. Digestive problems also occur if, the nerves controlling internal organs get damaged (autonomic neuropathy).
  • You may have scanty or profuse sweating, difficulty of sensing when your bladder is full, when there is a low blood sugar, increased sexual problems, weakness, dizziness, and fainting.
  • Chest pain (angina) or shortness of breath dizziness or light headache, shoulder or stomach pain, fast heartbeat. You might not show any symptoms until having a heart attack or stroke.

When alarming symptoms given by the body are ignored and the same status is maintained, it starts damaging body organs, such as heart, kidney, eye, feet, and skin. The physiology for each and every affected organ is explained one by one.

I have been type I diabetic for 25years. I get my regular checks ups, pay close attention to my diet and I still struggle. I take my meds like I am suppose to but I don't seem to be able to stay out of the high or low glucose at all. Here is an example of what I mean. I wake up, check my blood glucose I will be at about 86. I take my prescribed insulin and eat my well balanced breakfast by the time an hour passes I will be at 488. I then take the insulin to bring down the blood glucose and within an hour I am at 43. I do exactly what the doctor tells me. I am no longer symptomatic to low blood sugar. I just check my blood 8 times a day now. I have tighten my control even more but I still have trouble. I went from a 7.4 A1c to a 6.6 A1c. I just can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Is there any advice for me?

My 5 year old baby has Type 1 Diabetes. She is so afraid, everything is so frustrating. Why did this have to happen to her?

my two patients with juvenile diabetes who have been reffered after a few diagnosis and treatment have developed growth failure also. their heights are short and developement of secondary sex characteristics is delayed. also their complexion is rather pasty giving the appearnce of "milky coffee". clinical impression is as if they might have developed amyloidosis. age of one child is 18 and the other is 16 years old. their B.P.is normal and renal function not much disturbed.

in an under developed country like Pakistan to attain patient compliance adherance to dietary controle and insulin use is a very difficult task. even professional people are more geared towards acute controle. long term management and controle may remain a wishful thinking for some people who want to do something about it. (I being one of them!).

IT IS HIGHLY DESIRED TO HAVE ORGANISATIONS LOOKING INTO THIS MATTER AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
