Diabetic vascular disease is the development of blockages in the arteries due to diabetes. Diabetes causes your body to use insulin inefficiently or even not produce insulin. This result is too much glucose (blood sugar) is in your bloodstream.
Diabetes can also make you more susceptible to hardening of the arteries, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and coronary heart disease, as well as neuropathy, a nerve condition that causes a loss of protective sensation in the toes or feet.
