The Lurking Dangers of Untreated Diabetes

The Lurking Dangers of Untreated Diabetes

Diabetes is an uncomfortable and potentially dangerous disease to live with, even when treated properly. But what can happen when you don’t look after yourself when you suffer from diabetes?

Metabolic Emergencies

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is an extremely dangerous short-term condition that progresses rapidly. When insulin levels in the body become too low to treat all the glucose in the body, it results in a buildup of ketones. This can cause symptoms lie heavy breathing or wheezing, confusion, nausea and vomiting, dizziness, dehydration, and a fruity smell on the breath. Stress, trauma, and infections increase the risk of DKA.

Another dangerous metabolic emergency is hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state (HHS). Common symptoms include the feeling of your energy being drained, cramps in the legs and feet, problems with sight, fever, abdominal bloating and dehydration.

Nerve Damage

One of the biggest effects diabetes has on the body is damaging all kinds of nerves all across the body. Some of the biggest problem areas include the hands, feet, and limbs. Nerve damage can usually be identified by numbness or pain, as well as wounds that take extremely long to heal.

Eye Disease

Diabetes comes with a high risk of developing eye disease, as it can damage the small blood vessels in and around the eyes, leading to problems with your vision. This is referred to as diabetic retinopathy, and if left untreated can greatly increase the chance of cataracts and glaucoma.

Heart and Kidney Damage

Even when treated, diabetes increases the risk of developing kidney and heart problems by almost double.

This also means that people with diabetes are prone to developing such issues at a much younger age than people without diabetes. If not treated properly, it can have severe consequences kike kidney failure, stroke, and heart attacks.

Common Symptoms of Diabetic Issues:

-Constant Thirst

One of the early warning signs is being thirsty the whole time. It can reach a point where you become thirsty right after finishing a glass of water, and never feeling like anything quenches your thirst.

-Constant Urination

This is actually a side effect of the constant thirst, and obviously the more fluids you drink, the more you need to visit the restroom.

-Hunger and Weight Loss

When you develop diabetes, your body does not absorb all the nutrients from your food like it should. This means that you constantly feel the need for more food to provide your body with energy, and due to the lack of nutrients your body absorbs; you usually lose weight despite eating more frequently.


This is usually due to the fact that your body is not absorbing enough nutrients from your food, so you feel tired and deprived of energy throughout the day.


Since your body is tired-out and not functioning properly due to a lack of nutrients, it makes it much easier for infections and other such issues to creep in. Wounds also tend to take much longer to heal.

-Control Blood Sugar Levels

The good news is that you can control your diabetes, and even possibly reverse type-2 by making some lifestyle and dietary changes:

The first thing to do is to change your diet – see the Manna Low GI Diet in the free eBook.

You need to start exercising at least 30 to 45 minutes per day (please talk to your doctor before you start with any exercise program)

Make sure that you get at least 7 hours of good sleep per night.

Drink at least 1.5 liters of water per day.
