General & Family Physician 's  Response
It has now been proved beyond doubt that dreaded microvascular complications of diabetes can definitely be prevented or atleadt considerably postponed if persistent metabolic control is maintained.Microvascular complications are specific for diabetes and responsible for considerable morbidity and mortality.
Macro vascular diseases (I.e. cerebrovascular disease leading to stroke,coronary artery disease leading to myocardial infarction and peripheral vascular disease leading to gangrene),are commonly associated with diabetes,due to accelerated atherosclerosis.
The only way to prevent all these complications is to meticulously and persistently manage diabetes.
My advice to you is consult your doctor and control your sugar levels at any cost.
Your laxity at this stage will prove costly for you in future.
