In brief: poorly controlled..

Then suffer with eye disease-blindness risk; nerve disease- limb ulcers, infections -amputations; kidney disease-dialsis; heart attacks, strokes.
But if well controlled can markedly reduce risk of all of these, and have normal life, no complications, normal life span.
