Diabetes is not that serious
The complications of diabetes can be severe, so it’s simply untrue you can have a condition called ‘mild’ diabetes. While it usually takes several years for complications to eventuate, diabetes can have a profound impact on many of your body’s systems.
Some of the more serious complications include blindness and kidney disease. You can even get foot ulcers and risk amputation, not to mention the impact diabetes might have on your overall quality of life and mental health. To add to that, having diabetes means you’re four times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke. All in all, diabetes is a very serious condition indeed.
