Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Praveen Tayal's  Response
Hello.

Thanks for writing to us.

Diabetes per se cannot cause death but it is the complications arising from the disease like hypoglycemia, ketoacidosis, multiple infections, renal failure, artherosclerosis, stroke etc which are lethal. Prolonged uncontrolled blood glucose levels are the main responsible factors for such complications.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Regards,

Dr. Praveen Tayal
