"Diabetes does put a person at greater risk for heart disease, kidney disease, blindness, loss of limbs, and other unwanted complications. Fortunately, most diabetes complications can be avoided or effectively treated with early detection and proper care, according to Richard Jackson, M.D., director of medical affairs for health-care services at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston.

Despite what you may hear, Jackson says, diabetes itself is not a leading cause of blindness or heart disease in the United States. Rather, poorly managed diabetes is a leading cause of these and other serious health problems.

The Good News: "People with diabetes are living longer and healthier lives than ever," Jackson says. "All of the complications are becoming less common due to all the new tools we have for treatment." You play an important role in prevention. Read on to start looking forward to living well with diabetes."
