My mother was admitted to neighbouring hospital after falling due to slippage on floor. She is 72 years old and type 2 diabetic with controlled diabetes 150/200 with glimestar 1 mg 2 pills per day for last 15 years. It was observed on MRI that a compression fracture on back bone and two small cracks on pelvic bone. During traction and physiotherapy she exhibited severe shortness of breath and doctor carried out sonography and found some abnormality of the sort enlargement of heart. Upon pulmonary angiography bilateral pulmonary embolism was observed. Suddenly the other treatments stopped and some blood thinning medication under critical observations for 5 days conducted. Later she was brought to ward and two days was in observations and discharged suggesting if possible to walk 10-20 steps and increase slowly wearing proper belt. Initially she was only able to stand with support and walk only 2-3 steps with great difficulty. Normal diabetes medicine and daily 1 tablet of warfarin was prescribed. The major problem after discharge observed was her reluctance to swallow sufficient food and water. With great difficulty only juices, milk with energy drink, dal rice smashed was accepted only in limited quantities with reason of tasteless in mouth and vomiting sensations. All the food given was not swallowed to full extent, instead kept in mouth and she use slowly split the same after some time. Standing on her feet was also not possible and she was reluctant even to her moving on bed itself for frequent change of position. Sugar level increased to 200/300 and the tablet increased to 2 mg. Meanwhile blood was observed in urine and upon test Warfarin was stopped for 10 days. Within next 2-3 days, urine turned to white and upon /urine test /infection was detected and antibiotics prescribed. But the very next day the infection became severe as she was observed very uneasy. Upon hospitalization once again, she is kept in intensive care with antibiotic treatment and signs of improvement observed but the problem of tasteless in mouth is concern. At present the food is being fed through pipe in nose. We are very much worried about the future as without proper food, there is no scope of survival. Can you please help how to come out of such dreadful situation?

Diabetes is an acute ailment that can badly affect your heart, eyes, nerves, kidneys and feet. Therefore, it is important to understand how these organs and components are connected and how diabetes affects them. This will help you to follow your treatment procedure more thoroughly and improve your health condition more effectively.
Beginning of Health Ailments from Diabetes-
When diabetes in a person is not properly regulated and maintained, the blood-sugar levels rise up and this syndrome is called 'hyperglycaemia' or high blood sugar. The way sugar particles stick to each other when they are left uncovered for some time, blood vessels within human body also get stuck with sugar in the blood and make it difficult for blood circulation. Over time, this causes a severe damage to blood vessels connected to kidneys, heart, lungs, eyes and nerves.
Diabetes affecting all the major parts of the body-
Having uncontrolled blood sugar for a prolonged period of time can damage the tiny vessels around the eye causing vision troubles and eventual blindness. High levels of blood sugar in the blood vessels that supplies oxygen to the brain, and heart can develop a fat deposit around them leading to stroke and heart attack. Nerves in the human body serve the function of messengers that carry impulses from different body parts to the brain and vice versa. Having high blood sugar levels can damage blood vessels that carry oxygen and blood to all parts of the body. With the passage of time, nerves can get choked, and they may stop sending pain impulses to the brain.
Diabetes or high blood sugar levels can be detrimental for your feet as well. It mostly harms feet in two possible ways- firstly, it can damage the nerves and their functionality which, in turn would stand in the way of feeling pain as well as other problems occurring in your feet.
Secondly, diabetes leads to poor blood circulation, which makes it nearly impossible for sores and infection around the feet to heal. Once the healing process stops, it can even pave the way for amputation.
Lastly, diabetes is equally detrimental for kidneys, which are the filters of the human body. Kidneys are filled with miniature blood vessels, and high blood sugar can lead to clogged vessels, which disturb blood circulation. Once the kidney does not get ample oxygen and blood, lesser amounts of fluids are taken off the body that may subsequently lead to kidney failure.
Therefore, it is time to build awareness and lead a healthier lifestyle to keep diabetes under control, and a good physician will be able to guide you better on this. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.
