Diabetes affects the smallest blood vessels of your body first and some of the smallest blood vessels are in your eyes, fingers, toes, and kidneys. Increased sugar in the blood stream causes the blood vessel walls to become weak and leaky. If blood leaks from the vessel it causes damage that leads to nerve damage, tissue damage, and can cause irreversible vision loss.
Diabetes is the #1 cause of vision loss in the working age population in America, which is a scary statistic. Work hard to keep your blood sugars low and stable and ALWAYS have an annual eye exam to look at the blood vessels.
