Have you ever experienced any diabetes-related complications? Diabetes can affect many different parts of your body. This is especially true if your blood sugar remains high, as uncontrolled A1c levels can seriously increase the risk of developing some complications that can affect many different parts of the body, such as our heart, feet, kidneys, eyes, skin, mouth, teeth, gums, nerves, and more.
