We all have known that Diabetes could affect many organs and bring you several complications. Today I will list you three of these common complications and their symptoms. Any questions or confusion, feel free to ask our online doctor.
Firstly, I¡¯d like to introduce the influences on digestive system.
Diabetes could affect digestive system and are also associated with digestive system disease. Therefore, those two diseases should be corrected at the same time. The detailed digestive diseases include:
1. Oral lesions, for instance, oral mucosal diseases, decayed tooth and periodontal disease are commonly seen in people with Diabetes. All those may lead to loose tooth and finally result in tooth loss.
2. Enterogastric peristalsis is slowed down and results in diabetic gastroparesis in some serious cases. Those patients may experience vomiting, nausea, epigastric pain after dinner. To make things worse, they often fail to take good control of their blood glucose and suffer from recurrent attacks of low blood sugar and high blood sugar.
3. Most of people report they have irregular bowel movement. Some may have constipation, while others have diarrhea.
4. Your pancreas may be involved too. Diabetics are at a higher risk of suffering from pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. Meanwhile, pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer can be the inducing factors of Diabetes.
Secondly, peripheral neuropathy is another common complication. Terminal neuritis is exactly the major display. Symptoms of terminal neuritis represent limb pain, numbness, and easily to fall over themselves. They are unable to protect themselves, however, when high and low temperature as well as stab occurs.
Thirdly, compared to sensory nerve, the involvement of motor nerve is relatively infrequent. The main symptoms are muscle atrophy, general weakness, limb pain and some others. Good news is most of those symptoms can be corrected if treatments are taken timely and rightly.
