Complications of type 2 diabetes

Hyperosmolar Hyperglycaemic State (formerly known as hyperglycaemic hyperosmolar non-ketotic coma) is a serious complication that can happen to a person with diabetes who is ill or whose body is stressed.

People who have diabetes often have poor sleep habits, including trouble falling asleep or staying asleep.

Inactivity and obesity increase the risk for diabetes, but exactly how is unclear. Research suggests that inflammation inside the body plays a role in the development of type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes and other conditions

While research says diabetes puts you at risk of conditions such as stroke, a healthy lifestyle and treatments can help keep your risk lower.
