Abraham Tekola MD discusses complications from diabetes

Diabetes is a serious disease that can affect different parts of your body through its complications.
July 26, 2010 - PRLog -- Diabetes can damage your eyes, heart and blood vessels, kidneys, nerves, teeth and gums. Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to:

* heart attack

* stroke

* toe, foot, or leg infections requiring amputation

* blindness

* kidney failure

* tooth and gum disease

* pregnancy complications

People living with diabetes learn to manage their disease with proper diet, regular exercise, and medication. Success is measured by how well people can control thier blood sugar.

However, many factors can affect blood sugar besides diet and activity. Illness, stress, social drinking, and women’s menstrual cycles can all influence blood sugar levels and upset your normal routine.

"Some symptoms of trouble are always reasons to seek medical advice, whether it’s a call to your doctor or a trip to the emergency room," said Abraham Tekola, MD.
