What does this disease/disorder do to your body?
There are many things that can occur as a result of diabetes. In good control, one can live relatively complication-free. Uncontrolled or sporadically controlled, there are many possible complications affecting both the peripheral and autonomic nervous systems. That's the long term. The short term can also run a gambit of symptoms when not well-managed.
