The effect of diabetes can range from simple fungal infections that can be easily treated with medications to more severe side effects that require amputation.

People with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes are at a much higher risk than the general population for damage to the eyes, kidney, nerves, and blood vessels.

 How does blood sugar cause damage?

In people with diabetes, Sugar (Glucose) accumulated in the blood at very high levels. The excess glucose can attach to proteins in the blood vessels and alter their normal structure and function. One effect of this is that the vessels become thicker and less elastic, making it hard for blood to sqeeze through.
