Complications in diabetes

High blood glucose levels are damaging to blood vessels and can increase the likelihood of them narrowing through atherosclerosis. This damage also leads to poor supply of blood to nerves.
Poorly controlled hyperglycemia persisting for years can lead to complications affecting small blood vessels (microvascular complications), large blood vessels (macrovascular complications) or both.
The process by which vascular disease develops is complex and occurs via numerous pathways that scientists continue to investigate.
Microvascular complications - those resulting from damage to small blood vessels - are the most common complications of diabetes and include:
Retinopathy - disease of the eye
Nephropathy - disease of the kidneys
Neuropathy - disease of the nerves.
Macrovascular complications - those resulting from damage to large blood vessels - include:
Angina pectoris and heart attack
Transient ischemic attacks and strokes
Peripheral arterial disease.
