Complications of Diabetes

Potential complications of diabetes and frequent comorbidities consist of: Heart and blood vessel disease. Diabetes is associated with a better risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and narrowing of blood vessels (atherosclerosis). Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a common and life-threatening complication of type 1 diabetes, particularly at the time of diagnosis. DKA is less common at diagnosis and through the course of type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is the foremost reason of kidney disease. Micro vascular complications of diabetes are those long-term complications that disturb small blood vessels. These typically contain retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy. Retinopathy is divided into two key categories: No proliferative retinopathy and proliferative retinopathy.
