The most vulnerable are the capillaries, such as the capillaries under the retina, which are many and fine, after the blood vessels are blocked, the optic nerve atrophy leads to vision loss, and in severe cases, blindness.
The capillaries around the renal tubules are also very rich and prone to blockage, and once blockage occurs, the kidneys malfunction, which in severe cases can lead to renal failure.
That’s why some diabetics assume that dialysis is necessary to progress to advanced stages of diabetes.
(b) Blood glucose can not only cause blockage of capillaries, but can also block cardiovascular and trigger myocardial infarction.
Blockage of cerebral vessels, resulting in cerebral infarction, cerebral hemorrhage.
Clogging the circulating blood vessels in the lower extremities, causing necrosis in the lower extremities, and in severe cases even requiring amputation….
Blood sugar, the dangerous guy, is like a big three car truck on our highways, where it clogs up and traffic there is paralyzed.
Although not harmful in itself, the harm is too great to cause a breakdown of the circulatory system….
Another hazard is susceptibility to infection. Sugar is a favorite of bacteria, and with it, bacteria live a happy life.
High blood sugar inhibits the ability of leukocytes to engulf bacteria, leaving your body in a state of anarchy – “bad guys running around, cops not in charge”.
So, infections such as Candida, Bacteroides pneumoniae, Escherichia coli and other Gram-negative bacilli come to you.
They are extremely susceptible to growth in high concentrations of glucose tissue.
As a result, skin infections, pneumonia, and urinary tract infections are extremely common in people with diabetes.
Vulnerability to infection makes it inoperable in patients with advanced diabetes because there is no way for the wound to heal.
It is actually the damage to your blood vessels that causes complications such as heart attacks, brain attacks, diabetic nephropathy and diabetic retinopathy.
So, the dangers of abandoning treatment for diabetes can be imagined!
