This Week's Tip
9 hidden risks of uncontrolled blood sugar

Diabetes is a disease that can be prevented in most cases and treated successfully in the rest. But improper management and uncontrolled blood sugar can cause serious complications in many different areas of the body. Here is a head-to-toe list of its potential complications for people with diabetes:

Your brain: People with diabetes are 2 to 4 times more likely to suffer a stroke.
Your eyes: High blood sugar can lead to blurred vision, and eventually to diabetic retinopathy (eye disease) and blindness.
Your teeth: High blood sugar levels can cause gum disease, and gum disease can cause high blood sugar.
Your heart: People with diabetes are more likely to have heart and blood vessel problems.
Your lungs: Death from pneumonia or influenza complications is more likely in people who have diabetes.
Your stomach and bowels: Uncontrolled diabetes and/or high blood sugar levels can lead to nerve damage in the digestive system that cause trouble swallowing, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation and bloating.
Your kidneys: High blood sugar levels, especially when combined with high blood pressure, can cause kidney damage that requires dialysis.
Your reproductive health: Diabetes can cause erectile dysfunction (ED) in men, and yeast infections (vaginitis), vaginal dryness and complications during pregnancy in women.Your feet: Patients may suffer from numbness, a burning "pins and needles" feeling, poor circulation and possibly amputation.

Although the potential complications from diabetes may seem overwhelming, the good news is that most of these complications are preventable.
