Complications of Diabetes

Complications of Diabetes

In 2012, 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population had diabetes. Diabetes, particularly Type II diabetes can be easy to ignore, particularly when you're feeling well. Everyone knows that diabetes affects your blood sugar levels. However, diabetes can also affect multiple organs and can cause severe, life-threatening complications. Some of these potential complications include:

· Heart and blood vessel disease

· Nerve damage (neuropathy), particularly pain, numbness, and tingling in your hands and feet

· Kidney damage (nephropathy)

· Eye damage (retinopathy)

· Foot damage, including amputation

· Hearing impairment

· Skin conditions, such as bacterial and fungal infections

· Alzheimer's Disease

It's important to keep close check on your blood sugar and work with your doctor closely to keep your diabetes under control. Even if you aren't feeling poorly, uncontrolled blood sugar could be wreaking havoc on many other organs. If you suffer from diabetes and any of its related illnesses and they keep you from working, you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits.
