Unfortunately, diabetes can cause different complications to occur. These complications can manifest in different ways such as nerve damage, fatigue, eye damage, kidney damage, pregnancy complications, and more.
Have you experienced any complications from diabetes? How do you cope and/or manage the complications?

Well, I had a few instances of delayed wound healing, which was a pain and required outside treatments to facilitate the wound healing. They said it was due to my diabetes.

I have many complications from diabetes. First was steatohepatitis, liver cirrhosis, kidney disease, portal hypertension, pulmonary hypertension and now chronic lung failure with hypercapnia and it has also affected my heart with diastolic heart failure. It can do so much damage that one never expects.

@JARV48 Hello JARV48, thank you for your comment. I'm sorry to hear your diabetes has caused so many other conditions. You bring up a great point, unfortunately due to its insidious nature, diabetes can often cause significant damage to the body before it is caught.
Has anyone else experienced any other complications to you health because of your diabetes?

My Complications From Diabetes Are Carpal Tunnel In My Hands, I Had A Bilateral Carpal Tunnel Release In 2016 For My Left And Getting Ready To Have Another In My Right Hand, Neuropathy In Feet Along With Peripheral Nerve Entrapment Of The Lower Extremity In My Left Leg, Which I Had Lost All Feeling From My Knee To My Foot, I Have Severe Kidney Damage But I Take An ACE Inhibitor To Stop My Kidneys From Going Into Renal Failure, I Have Been Hospitalized For Diabetic Ulcers I Would Get On My Thighs That Made Me Sepsis Because They Wouldn't Heal Properly, They Had To Give Me High Powerful Steroids To Kill Off The Infection. I See An Endocrinologist To Manage My Diabetes And He Now Has Me On Insulin Pump To Where I Get 1.1 Units Of Novolog Every Hour, It Has Saved My Life, I Have Been On It Since December, My A1c Was 11.4 Back In Sept 2020 And In December 2020 It Was 7.3 So My Pump Is Doing Its Job!
