Health Status Outcomes for Deaths due to Diabetes as Underlying Cause

Health Status Outcomes

Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to debilitating health problems. People with diabetes have an excess risk for kidney failure, blindness, non-traumatic lower extremity amputations, and neuropathy (nerve damage). People with diabetes are more likely to report their health as "fair" or "poor" than people without diabetes.
