Diabetes and Circulation
Diabetes and Circulation
One of the very dreadful complications associated with
diabetes is amputation of limbs and loss of vision. This complication occurs as

sensation to these areas, and this loss of sensation can lead to cuts and sores
which would normally cause pain, to not be painful. If these sores become
infected then to prevent the further spread of infection, amputation may be
If this loss of normal circulation occurs in the eyes, the
optic nerve can be involved and this can lead to a progressive worsening of vision

more and more insulin is required, the cells that produce insulin eventually
stop working. Once they stop working,
