What is Diabetic Vascular Disease?
Diabetic vascular disease is a condition in which the arteries around the body begin to harden from a build-up of sugar and lack of insulin caused by untreated diabetes. While diabetic vascular disease may affect larger arteries in the body closer to the heart, this condition most commonly affects the smaller arteries closer to the hands, feet, eyes, and kidneys. Patients who have diabetic vascular disease may notice they experience symptoms like swelling of the extremities, open sores and ulcers that never fully heal , burning sensations in their feet, and hypertension.
What Causes Diabetic Vascular Disease?
The main cause of diabetic vascular disease is the hardening of arteries caused by diabetic mellitus, or a condition that may occur when sugar levels get too high and are not counteracted by insulin levels. This is typically found in patients who have type II diabetes are not treating it properly. Other risk factors that may contribute to diabetic vascular disease include obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and a mostly sedentary lifestyle.
