Diabetic complications –
If you take blood sugar casually, it will definitely hit you, because high blood sugar gradually reduces the normal functions of the artery, veins and nerves, and a patient could not assess because the process is very slow. health problems that diabetes may cause over the years are called diabetic complications and one should remember that diabetic complications never comes alone, details are given here…
- Eye – Diabetes is the main causes of blindness in adults, Diabetic Retinopathy is a diabetic complication, in which blood supplying arteries of the eye become fragile and start to bleed and leads to partly or completely blindness, early Cataract, and Glaucoma are the other common eye complications.
- Heart – Uncontrolled diabetes with dyslipidemia increases the risk of various cardiovascular problems dramatically as CAD (Coronary Artery Disease), with chest pain (angina), Heart attack and stroke are more fatal because feeling of pain in diabetes is less than 40%, so rate of casualty is much more.
- Kidney – Filters and flush out the waste products from body and works 24×7 to clean our body, Increased blood sugar make more load on kidneys and gradually damage this very delicate filtering system, normal functions get affected and become impaired, this is condition called “Diabetic Nephropathy” of different grade. It is a irreversible problem and severe damage can lead to kidney failure.
- Nerves – Sensation and reflexes in the body are the main function or nerves, and uncontrolled blood sugar reduces natural nourishment of the interior wall of the very thin blood vessels results in poor functionally which gradually reduces the sense of touch, pain etc. and patient start to feel tingling, numbness, burning or pain at the tips of the toes or fingers and gradually spreads upward called “Diabetic Neuropathy”.
- Digestive System – Increased level of sugar in blood also affects digestive system leading to heart burn, nausea, vomiting, poor appetite and weight loss, diarrhoea or constipation called Diabetic Gastroparesis.
- Impotency - It is very sensitive problem in male and female both uncontrolled blood sugar directly affects the muscles, blood and nerve supply which involves the sex organs normal functionality and finally leads to erectile dysfunction in male and frigidity in female(lack of sexual desire), about 35% to 75% experience at least some degree of erectile dysfunction.
- Diabetic Foot – High blood sugar damage the nerve supply and poor blood flow to the feet, increases the risk of various foot complications as blisters, unhealed ulcer, fissures with or without infection may lead to serious problem, if untreated than amputation of toe, foot or leg is required for saving the life of the patient.
- Skin conditions – 25-30% of known age between 16-80 years face the skin problem as blister-like lesions, repeated bacterial infections and psoriasis etc.
- Hearing impairment – Hearing problems are more common in uncontrolled diabetes, and research established that relative nerve (auditory) malfunction leads to partly or completely hear loss.
- Alzheimer’s disease – The trio of Sleep disorder, continuous stress and uncontrolled diabetes may increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

- 1. Ischemic strokes
- 2. Hemorrhagic strokes
- Both conditions are medical emergencies and earliest possible hospitalization and treatment must be sought as quickly as possible.

- It primarily manifest under the symptoms as Tingling, Numbness (become permanent), Burning (in the evening) and Pain. Later lack of erection in men and dryness of vagina in women are also big problems.

How we treat –
Eyes Complications – (Early cataract, Retinopathy Non-proliferated, Glaucoma are the common problem of eyes)
Reason - Repeatedly changing number of spectacle number is also with above said eye problems. All these are due to uncontrolled control blood sugar. But it can be even controlled blood sugar due mixture of oxidative stress and stiffness of micro arteries.
While Retinopathy Proliferated (Bleeding in retinal micro vessels) is due to uncontrolled blood sugar, High cholesterols with high blood pressure leak to start bleeding from the stiff and brittle micro arteries called vitreous haemorrhage of the retina, leads to blindness, and laser is the right treatment.
How we treat –
Reason – Heart attack is a condition in which flow of the oxygen-rich blood to a section of heart muscle suddenly becomes blocked and the heart can't get fresh oxygen in for few second to minutes and this duration decide the severity of attack.
Most heart attacks occur as a result of CHD (Coronary Heart Disease) blocked in more than one arteries; it is a condition in which a waxy substance (called plaque) blocked inside of the coronary arteries but in uncontrolled diabetic patients thickness of arteries and nerves damage above mechanism goes faster.
Simultaneously 30- 40% diabetic patients get the life-threatening heart attack without feeling severe chest pain because in diabetic patients feeling of pain is reduced by 30% due to diabetic neuropathy and patient unable to understand it.
Old age, duration of diabetes more than ten years, uncontrolled diabetes, High blood pressure, smoking & alcohol abusing, low level of good cholesterol and high level of bad cholesterol are the main associating factors.
Earliest possible hospitalization reduce the risk of mortality, Coronary Angioplasty & stenting, Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery are the surgical treatments, some drugs blood-thinning medications, Nitro-glycerin, and anti-hypertensive drugs are medical treatment.
Failure of Kidney function –
Reasons – Un-control diabetes and High blood pressure are two main culprits, which affect whole body after not properly caring and control it, nerves and small blood vessels become brittle and gradually injured without showing any symptoms.
When this process injured kidneys, then the kidney is unable to process the cleaning of the blood properly, As a result, the body is partly failed to throw out the toxins from the body. As duration passes water and salt as sodium retention increases due to slow down the functionality of the kidneys. And swelling over ankle shows as first clinical symptoms, then protein (known as albumin) come through urine, simultaneously other waste materials (of digestion) is re-circulated in the body damage more with different manifestations.
Finally total function of excretion get disturbed due to not properly clear urinary balder, so repeated urine infections add more relative problem, than Urea, creatinine and BUN level become high in blood and patient said to be CKD with diabetes, as above said levels get increased, patient feels morning sickness, nausea and vomiting, weakness, anaemia, and itching.
Dialysis and transplant of the kidney is the last treatment of modern science, 30-40% of type-2 diabetes are suffering from the CKD.
How we treat-
Every Stage of CKD is not treatable; some conditions can treatable while others are not, and the patient must know that CKD is a progressive disease and has no cure.
Special treatment for CKD – Unfortunately some patient advised for kidney transplantation by nephrologists, after transplantation body of some patient accept the donor kidney, while some are not, simultaneously after this major surgery, post surgical complications and cost effective treatment become part of life with many restrictions of routine life
In such type of patients we have customize solution, add immuno-modulator medication to improve the general health conditions and immunity to help too accept the kidney and fast recovery after transplant.
Sexual Impotency (in Male)
How we treat -
Poor foot arterial supply and stiffness
Reasons – It is also known as Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) or hardening of the arteries. This cause arteries become narrow an interior wall of the arteries become stiffer and cannot be widen to allow needed normal blood flow of lags and feet. Smoking, overweight, uncontrolled diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, CAD (Coronary artery disease).
PAD manifestation as Pain and cramp at night, tingling in the feet or toe or both, changing of color shiny(darker) and non-healing wound. Coldness in the lower leg and foot, hair loss on the feet and leg, slower toenail growth, erectile dysfunction in men.
How We Care -
Other complications –
Many Diabetic patients have different individual problem, like constipation, repeated loose motions, and weakness while blood sugar and blood pressure are normal are be treated.
