In brief: Unkown
How diabetes causes long-term problems is unclear. However, changes in the small blood vessels & nerves are common.
These changes may be the first step toward many problems that diabetes causes. Complications are most likely to occur in someone who has had diabetes for many years.

In brief: Many complications
Diabetic patient are at greater risk for complications such as cardiovascular disease (high blood pressure, poor circulation), nerve damage (neuropathy- resulting in poor sensation), kidney damage (nephropathy - poor kidney function), and eye damage (retinopathy- resulting in poor vision).
There are different symptoms for each complication. Have your self evaluated to get the appropriate tests.

In brief: Too much sugar
The reasons for the complications of diabetes is the inability for the body to use the amount of sugar that a person eats, so that the excess sugar attaches in places it should not.
It attaches to blood vessels and nerves, and also affects the immune system; together, these lead to the complications of diabetes.
