High blood sugars: Type 2 diabetes is a condition with high sugars, due to Insulin deficiency, Insulin inefficiency. If uncontrolled, these high sugars will eventually lead to damage in kidneys, eyes, nerves and other blood vessel beds (heart, neck, legs, etc). Moderating dietary intake of carbs in type 2 diabetes is needed to control sugar levels. Chips and soda, with high carb content, will cause high glucoses.
