Why type 2 diabetes 'ages' you

If type 2 diabetes is left uncontrolled, glucose (sugar) builds up in your blood and starts to cause damage all around your body. This damage speeds up the ‘ageing process’ and increases your risk of complications e.g. problems with your eyes, heart, feet, kidneys. 


The good news is there are lots of things you can do to get your blood sugar under control and reduce its ageing effect - and as your blood sugar comes down, your energy will go up, helping you to feel years younger.
