Diabetes occurs due to damage cells in the pancreas that produce insulin, so the body loses its ability to regulate blood sugar levels. The symptoms shown by high blood sugar levels and the inability of the body to produce insulin.
Which is dangerous is actually not the high blood glucose levels, but the effects of complications that occur.
“Besides being able to endanger the life that led to death, it can also cause defects that are difficult to repair,”
If it reaches the level of complications, it means your body is an interruption in the small blood vessels (microvascular) and disruption of the blood vessels (macrovascular). Here are some common complications arising from diabetes:
1. Impaired vision
Blurry eyes, puffy eyes, and blindness. This is a complication that strikes the retina of the eye (retinopathy), which generally result in microvascular disorders. “If this disorder in its early stages, it can still be prevented by controlling blood sugar, but when it’s too severe blindness can occur,”
2. Impaired renal function
In medical terms, the disease is commonly referred to as diabetic nephropathy. This complication occurs because the high glucose in the blood that cause a decline in kidney function in the body. If kidney function is not working properly, then some parts of the body will have swelling. If it is too severe, dialysis should be routine.
3. Erectile dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is caused by this microvascular disruption that attacks the nerve cells of the sex organs. However, it can also be a result of mikrovaslukar disorders that could potentially lead to impotence.
“DE must be viewed from two factors, namely psychological factors and biological factors. People with diabetes still have hormone, which means that the desire to have intercourse remains. Only abilities which are not supported due to blockage of blood vessels,”
4. Coronary heart disease and stroke
These complications are looming if not actually maintain the stability of blood glucose levels. Both of these complications is triggered by microvascular and macrovascular factors. In addition to blood sugar, cholesterol levels and the need to control blood pressure. Alert when there are symptoms of an unhealthy heart, such as chest pain, tightness, or going very fast heartbeat.
5. Nerve function
Damage to the nerves (neuropathy) will trigger a loss of some neurological functions, such as frequent tingling, especially in the area around the feet and hands, pain in hands and feet, or sensitive skin. The loss of nerve function work can be prevented by controlling blood sugar levels.
It is a condition when the body’s blood sugar levels are too low. Hypoglycemia can also occur due to eating too little and too much exercise. If the decrease in blood sugar happens very quickly, it should be addressed. If not quickly addressed, it can cause loss of consciousness leading to death.
