In brief: Depends

There are many systems in the body that need to be regulated.
For instance, if blood pressure goes too high you can stroke; if there is too much cholesterol, you can stroke or get nerve damage. If the immune system is not under control, the brain and nerves can be damaged. If you have vitamin deficiencies or excess, the nerves and the brain could be damaged, etc.
