In brief: Poor glucose control

No food is harmful, poor diabetic control is harmful! .
A diet of protein and vegetables with low glycemic fruits are best for good control. Deserts and sugar substitutes should be avoided. As a non diabetic, i never eat desert, aside from being unhealthy, there is no nutritional value. A pointless waste of calories other than pure indulgememt discipline necessary for all, not just diabetics.

The poorer controlled one's diabetes is the greater risk to the person's kidneys, heart, and nervous systems.
Foodstuffs high in sugar content are the most deleterious.
