Complications of type 2 diabetes - Expert Video

Expert Video: What problems can occur with type 2 diabetes?

Diabetes experts explain the microvascular (small) and macrovascular (large) vessel complications that can occur in type 2 diabetes. Damage to the micro blood vessels can cause vision problems including loss of sight, nerve damage, and kidney disease. Damage to the macro blood vessels can cause cardiovascular complications such as heart disease, heart failure, stroke, and poor blood circulation to the peripheral limbs, such as the hands and feet.
