Confused: A cerebral vascular accident is another term for stroke or brain attack. After that occurs, the patient often needs rehabilitation so they would go to a rehabilitation center (or institute) where they would get intensive, specialized physical, occupational, and speech therapy.

Do not understand: I do not understand the question. A cva is the same as a stroke and strokes are often treated at rehabilitation hospitals.

Hormonal: The kidneys are a pivotal component of blood pressure control with multiple mechanisms that can elevate the blood pressure. Disease of the kidneys themselves can induce release of hormones that raise the blood pressure. The arteries that feed the kidneys can have partial blockages that cause the kidneys to secrete hormones to raise the bp. Glands that are adjacent can also release BP hormones.

Are vascular conditions a common complication of type 1 diabetes?

3 doctor answers7 doctors weighed in
Dr. Jon Ahrendsen
Family Medicine 39 years experience
Generally Yes: But it would be most accurate to say that vascular complications are especially more likely to occur if there is uncontrolled type 1 diabetes. Problems with the vascular system in the eye, the kidney, the heart, and the toes are all much more common in the diabetic, but especially in the diabetic who does not control their diabetes. Ideal control would be a hemoglobina1c of less than 7.
