  • Quit Smoking
  • Regular Physical Exercise
  • Well balanced and healthy diet for heart

Kidney diseases:

Diabetes is a leading cause of kidney failure. At least half of all people with diabetes may have signs of early kidney problems. Diabetes can raise the risk of chronic kidney disease. In some cases Kidney diseases may leads to hypertension which may causes heart problems.

Diabetes can often lead to nerve disorders. Nerve damage may also be caused by inflammation. Diabetic neuropathy can give you symptoms of pain, numbness or tingling in your legs and toes, arms and fingers. Also, some digestive disorders like nausea, indigestion or constipation.

Reduce the risk by:

  • Balancing the blood glucose levels in a healthy range.
  • Quit smoking and alcohol.

Amputations:

There are mainly two reasons diabetes leads to amputations of feet or legs. Due to diabetes the blood vessels became narrowed which interrupts the regular flow of blood to lower parts of the body. By this irregular blood flow cuts or sores on the feet or legs will get worse instead of better. Also, due to diabetes you may not feel the pain of a foot problem leading to the Amputation.

Reduce the risk by:

  • Take proper care to the feet by cleansing them and inspecting them everyday
  • Avoid things might hurt your feet.

Vision loss:

Diabetes may causes blockages or abnormal growth of blood vessels in the retina. Blood vessel changes in the retina can lead to vision problems and even blindness.
