The Common Complications of Diabetes

Welcome back! Ready for more?

The three factors we covered in the last section (hyperglycemia, vascular problems and nerve problems) contribute to the more acute complications that can be more readily seen or felt.

In this lesson, you'll learn:

  • What are eye problems?
  • What are kidney problems?
  • What are foot problems?
  • What are gum and teeth problems?
  • What are skin and healing problems?
  • What is gastroparesis?
  • What is ketoacidosis

And we're off.
