Complications of Diabetes

by Rajeev Chawla

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is increasing exponentially in urban population especially type 2 DM in urban populations has become a serious concern. In developing countries like India and china, middle age group populations are more commonly affected by diabetes mellitus and are at a higher risk of developing micro- and macrovascular complications. Hyperglycemia is major risk factor for micro- and macrovascular complications, but it is generally associated with microvascular complications. Similarly, macrovascular complications are commonly associated with obesity, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and hyperinsulinemia. Complications of type 2 diabetics can be primarily prevented by early stage diagnosis and treatment, whereas secondary prevention of diabetes mellitus disease works only if the diabetic patient has undergone regular screening for complications. The book covers major complications that are associated with diabetes mellitus such as acute complications, chronic complications, neuropathy, renal complications, ocular complications, foot complications, and gastrointestinal complications. Some of the diseases that are highly complicated due to involvement of diabetes mellitus in patients are coronary artery disease, peripheral arterial disease, cerebrovascular disease, genitourinary, and erectile dysfunction. This book also helps the physicians to treat the diabetic patients by understanding the complications early, so that this enormous burden could be prevented or their progression can be ceased.
