Complications of Diabetes

The most significant health impacts of diabetes are the long-term complications it can cause. Most of these long-term complications are related to the adverse effects diabetes has on arteries and nerves.

Complications related to artery damage

Diabetes causes damage to both large and small arteries. This artery damage results in medical problems that are both common and serious:

  • Cardiovascular disease: Diabetic patients have up to a 400% greater chance of heart attack or stroke. Heart disease and stroke cause about 65% of demise among people with diabetes. These deaths could be reduced by 30% with improved care to control blood pressure and blood glucose and lipid intensity.
  • Amputations: About 82,000 people have diabetes-related leg and foot amputations each year. Over 60% of non-traumatic lower limb amputations are diabetes related. Foot care programs that include regular examinations and patient education could prevent up to 85% of these amputations.
  • Kidney disease: About 38,000 people with diabetes build up kidney failure each year. Treatment to better control blood pressure and blood glucose levels could reduce diabetes-related kidney failure by about 50%.
  • Eye disease and blindness: Each year, 12,000-24,000 people become blind because of diabetic eye disease, together with diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes is the leading cause of new cases of blindness among adults 20-74 years old. Screening and care could prevent up to 90% of diabetes-related blindness.
  • Sexual Dysfunction: Approximately 70% of all adult males with diabetes currently suffer or will experience sexual dysfunction or impotency.

Complications related to nerve damage

60 to 70% of people with diabetes have meek to severe forms of nervous system damage. This diabetic neuropathy may result in numbness, tingling, and paresthesias in the extremities and, less often, incapacitating, severe, deep-seated pain and hyperesthesia. The following are examples of diabetic neuropathy

  • Peripheral neuropathy: The feet and legs can develop tingling, pain, or a loss of feeling. This problem makes foot ulcers and foot infections more common, adding to the possibility that an amputation may be needed.
  • Stomach and bowel problems: The nerves that trigger normal movements of the stomach and intestines can become less active or less predictable. This can result in nausea, constipation or diarrhoea. A stomach that is slow to empty has a diabetes condition called gastro paresis.
  • Giddiness whilst standing: Your circulation has to make some adjustments to move blood from your toes to your torso when you are standing up, since it is pumping against gravity. When your body is working correctly, this adjustment includes tightening of blood vessels to prevent pooling of blood in your lower body. The circulation relies on nerve signals to know when to make this adjustment. These signals can fail in diabetes, leaving you with low blood pressure and light headedness when you are standing.
  • Sexual-function problems: Impotence is especially common in people with nerve damage from diabetes. Artery damage also contributes to impotency.
  • Localized nerve failures: A nerve that controls a single muscle can lose its function. Examples of problems that might result are eye movement problems with double vision, or wilting of the cheek on one side of the head (commonly known as Bell's palsy).

Other Complications

Flu- and pneumonia-related deaths: Each year, 10,000-30,000 people with diabetes die of complications from flu or pneumonia. They are roughly three times more likely to die of these complications than people without diabetes.
Pregnancy complications: About 18,000 women with pre-existing diabetes deliver babies each year, and an estimated 135,000 expectant mothers are diagnosed with gestational diabetes. These women and their babies have an increased risk for serious complications.
Many of these potential complications can significantly shorten the life of a person with diabetes, and all of them can diminish the quality of life.

Diabetes complications are primarily caused by 2 factors:
Excessive Glycosylation and Sorbitol Accumulation. Excessive Glycosylation

  • Glycosylation is the process by which the sugar molecule binds irreversibly to a protein molecule. This process takes place in all humans, but because diabetics have higher levels of glucose in their blood and for longer durations than non diabetics, they have a much higher degree of glycosylation occurring.
  • Excessive glycosylation results in abnormal protein structures which lead to a host of cellular dysfunctions such as: inactivation of enzymes, inhibition of regulatory molecule binding, decreased susceptibility to proteolysis, abnormalities of nucleic acid function, altered macromolecular recognitions and increased immunogenicity.
  • In diabetics, glucose binds to proteins in the blood, nerves and the eyes. This pathological process causes much of the damage in the complications of diabetes.

Sorbitol Accumulation

  • Sorbitol is the by product of glucose metabolism and is produced through the action of the enzyme aldose reductive.
  • In non-diabetics, sorbitol is converted to fructose and is easily excreted from the cell, but inside the cells of diabetics, when glucose levels become elevated (even after glucose levels outside of the cell return to normal); sorbitol is produced faster than it can be broken down. Since it cannot cross the cell membrane, it builds up to a toxic level inside the cells, creating an imbalance and causing a loss of electrolytes and other minerals. This accumulated sorbitol draws water in to the cell, by the process known as osmosis, and ultimately leads to the collapse of its architecture and loss of its function.
  • Sorbitol-induced osmotic swelling is believed to be one of the main causes of tissue damage in diabetics. This condition seems to target organs and tissues that are not dependent on insulin for their absorption of glucose. Elevations of sorbitol levels are a major problem in peripheral nerves, blood vessels, the cells of the retinal blood vessels, and the lens of the eye, the pancreas, kidneys and other organs due to their lack of insulin dependence.

Lack of oxygen supply and peripheral nerve damage are the key factors in the development of diabetic foot ulcers. The foot ulcers are largely preventable through proper foot care, the avoidance of injury and tobacco in any form, and employing methods to improve the circulation in the area.
Proper foot care includes keeping the feet clean, dry and warm and wearing only well fitted shoes. Tobacco use should be strictly avoided. Circulation can be improved by avoiding sitting with the legs crossed or in other positions that compromise circulation, and by massaging the feet lightly upwards. The study of diabetic cataracts has led to the elucidation of the role of aldose reductase in the development of diabetic complications. AR is the enzyme involved in the formation of polyols, some of which (sorbitol and galactitol) are implicated in the development of diabetic complications.
The use of drugs which inhibit aldose reductive, such as sorbinil, has led to improvement in some individuals with diabetes. Flavonoids, such as quercetin, are potent inhibitors of polyol accretion. Many herbs contain high amounts of flavonoids. This may give explanation why herbs are so effective the management of diabetes.
