In brief: Diabetes is bad!
Too much sugar in the blood is a sign of diabetes.
In diabetes, the extra glucose or sugar, in the blood can cause lots of organs to not function properly over time, most importantly the heart and blood vessels, nerves, kidneys, and eyes. This needs to be diagnosed quickly and treated aggressively for prevention of damage to these organs!
