In brief: Many ways

Diabetes can damage just about every organ system. Common deadly complications are heart attack, stroke, kidney failure and infection.
Diabetes can also cause blindness, bad circulation leading to gangrene, and blood sugar that gets too high or too low (from too much insulin/meds) can also be fatal. Good control of blood sugar is best way to prevent complications before they start!
