Four signs of diabetes complications you shouldn't ignore
When your blood sugar levels are consistently out of whack, your risk of health problems throughout your body, including your heart, kidneys, blood vessels, nerves and eyes drastically increases.

In the long term, these health problems could lead to disabling, even life-threatening, conditions. That's why if you have type 2 diabetes, managing your blood sugar is an absolute must!

Knowing the signs of diabetes complications is one of the first steps to managing your condition. Here are four warning signs you shouldn't ignore...

Learn these four signs of diabetes complications

#1: Excessive urination and thirst
A consistent need to urinate and excessive thirst could be signs that your blood sugar is too high. Over time, high blood sugar can result in very serious complications, including heart disease, kidney damage and nerve damage. Exercising and following a diabetes meal plan can help prevent and treat high blood sugar.
 
#2: Pressure in your eyes or blurry vision
Uncontrolled blood sugar levels can increase your risk of a number of eye conditions, including cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. If ignored, these conditions can lead to vision loss or blindness. For this reason, it’s important to have regular eye exams.

Blood sugar worries? 
Get ready to sigh with sweet relief!
 
When this research first crossed my desk I couldn’t believe it!
 
The latest blood sugar science shows that your body’s own safety mechanism is why your current blood sugar solution may be selling you short.
 
In fact, this research confirms that targeting only your body’s natural insulin and your pancreas to conquer blood sugar is like trying to douse a forest fire with a glass of water.
 
But this research has also led to some really exciting news for you—a breakthrough in blood sugar science that no one saw coming.

#3: Swollen face, hands, feet or ankles
Swelling can indicate that your kidneys aren’t functioning filtering waste from your blood as they should be. This isn’t the only sign of kidney malfunction though – other signs include weakness, upset stomach, difficulty sleeping and difficulty concentration.
 
#4: Poor circulation in your limbs
Nerve damage from poor circulation, especially in your limbs, can prevent you from feeling heat or cold or a cut on your foot that can then go untreated. Always inspect your limbs down to each toe and the soles on your feet every day, wear good-fitting shoes and seek medical attention if you experience poor circulation that won’t go away.
 
Learning these signs of diabetes complications may help you delay or prevent them from happening.
