Short-Term Diabetic Complications

Complications co- related with diabetes are often acute or chronic. Acute complications, though short-termed, can often present instant danger and thus needs to be treated at the earliest possible. These short-term complications are mainly characterized by the hypoglycaemic or hyperglycaemic state of the body in which it is unable to function properly. Acute complications chiefly consist of diabetic ketoacidosis, diabetic coma and so on. These complications if properly treated, usually results in full recovery, however, might prove fatal in case of delayed treatment.
