Yes: Lung damage and inflammation of the air sacs (alveoli) results in emphysema. Treatment of chronic emphysema often includes medications that decrease the inflammatory response and therefore decrease the enlargement and destruction of the air spaces distal to the terminal bronchioles.

Retinopathy: Blood vessels damaged from diabetic retinopathy can cause vision loss in two ways. Fragile, abnormal blood vessels can develop & leak blood into the eye, blurring vision. This is proliferative retinopathy & is 4th and most advanced stage of disease. Fluid can leak into the center of the macula, the part of the eye where sharp, straight-ahead vision occurs. This condition is called macular edema.
