Best Answer

Diabetes can kill in different ways. The elevation of blood glucose levels damages arteries, veins and capillaries. This can lead to a stroke, Heart disease, blindness, peripheral vascular disease, muscle wasting or embolism.

Diabetes is also the main cause of kidney failure.

Hypoglycemia which is low blood glucose levels can result in diabetic coma, and if left untreated organ failure.

Diabetic kedoacidosis is when the lack of insulin causes the liver to turn fat into ketone bodies. This causes the blood pH to drop. In severe cases it can lead to hypotension, shock and death.
