Diabetes is already a fairly dangerous problem, but it also makes other health conditions and injuries more serious. For example, if you are injured or wounded, diabetes makes it harder for the wound to heal, and can lead to complications like:
- A weakened immune system
- Nerve damage
- Narrowed arteries
