Are Vascular Conditions A Common Complication Of Type 1 Diabetes
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. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
The vascular system is made up with 3 components, arteries, veins, and lymph channels. The most common description of vascular disease is usually associated with arterial insufficiency, also known as PAD. This usually is more of an issue as people age, who also have associated medical conditions to include diabetes, hypertension, heart ...Read more
Yes- but preventable: Over time patients with diabetes are more likely to develop atherosclerotic blockages in any arterial bed (heart, legs, carotids). This can be prevented by careful screening with ultrasounds and stress (or cta?), and strict control of other risks: ldl, hypertension and smoking. Diabetic neuropathy can mask symptoms especially cardiac, and can also mimic symptoms of leg pain. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
PVD: Peripheral vascular disease is part of the progress of atherosclerosis since there are arteries throughout the body and the plaque can build up anywhere in that system, eg the carotid arteries, the legs, the renal artery - anywhere. This can result in ischemia - insufficient oxygen causing pain and potentially muscle death - people with advance disease can lose a toe or a leg. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Must be ruled out: Vascular conditions must be ruled out as part of the injury evaluation and treatment. Vascular conditions after an injury are not uncommon; they often are missed because they're not suspected and don't have symptoms right away. A missed vascular condition after injury can be devastating. If you are injured, ask your doctor to evaluate you for a possible vascular condition. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Several: Complications of poorly controlled type 1 diabetes is similar to type 2 and include heart disease, blindness, nerve damage, wounds that don't heal possibly leading to amputation, and kidney damage. The earlier you develop diabetes and the less controlled your blood sugar is, the higher the risk of developing complications. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes for some lung dz: Any condition that causes pulmonary hypertension (emphysema/copd, sleep apnea, fibrosis, scleroderma, etc) can lead to cor pulmonale (right-heart failure) which stagnates venous flow and cause liver problems. Cancer or infection of the lung can sometimes lead to dic, a life-threatening condition in which clots block small blood vessels all over the body. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
PAD and renal fail: A blockage in the artery that supplies blood to a kidney can diminish the kidney until it is irreversibly damaged. Hypertension and diabetes when out of control can accelerate vascular disease and kidney damage. So yes, pad/ peripheral artery disease can cause or accelerate kidney disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Embolism is a vascul: Embolism is when a clot or piece of cholesterol plaque travels from one part of the vascularture to another so by definition it is a vascular disease. Now an embolism can cause new disease where it travels to such as stroke, and ischemia of a limb or intestines. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Multifactorial: Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the body produces antibodies which attack the pancreatic insulin-producing cells. There are genetic factors which contribute to this; however, there is/are environmental trigger(s) which have not yet been identified. So, even if someone has the genetic potential for type 1 diabetes, it's not enough to get it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Conditions including, but not limited to, heart attack, stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and vascular kidney disease are all increased in patient with uncontrolled high blood pressure. For almost all related problems, control of BP reduces the risk at or near that for non-hypertensive people. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: The thoracic outlet is notable for the presence of arteries, veins, and nerves. This outlet may be compressed to various degrees by various means (position, abnormal anatomy, tumor), impairing arterial blood supply to, or veinous drainage of, the arm. Also, there may be supply/drain complications to the brain. Symptoms include pain, swelling, numbness of the arm, and potentially lightheadedness. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
