Heart Disease and Stroke
If you have diabetes, you are at risk for having a heart attack or stroke. These strike people with diabetes more than twice as often as people without diabetes.

This filter damage in uncontrolled diabetes, initially it start losing small amount of protein called “micoralbuminurea”, if diabetes is not given rigid care it worsen and this filter damage more and it is converted to more bigger molecules of protein called “ macroalbuminurea” . Later uncontrolled diabetes let the patient go in to frank renal failure need dialysis to sustain his life. This is very difficult and depressive phase of patient. The kidneys contain millions of tiny blood vessel clusters that filter waste from your blood. Diabetes can damage this delicate filtering system. Severe damage can lead to kidney failure or irreversible end-stage kidney disease, requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant. Uncontrolled blood pressure multiples the risk of renal failure in diabetes.
Blindness is a major health problem in patient with uncontrolled diabetes. Eye disorder include. Retinopathy: effecting the retina of eye,Glaucoma( Kala Motia)it is problem in which there is increase pressure in the eye, high pressure in the eye its self is a major cause of blindness.Cataracts( safaidMotia):65 % higher risk of developing cataract. In this condition lens of the eye get opaque, and patient need to replace a new lens.
