What is Diabetic Vascular Disease?
Diabetic vascular disease is exactly how it sounds. This condition occurs when the arteries in the body begin to harden due to a build-up of sugar and lack of insulin being pumped through the system. Diabetic vascular disease is typically caused by untreated diabetes and, while it can affect larger arteries closer to the heart, it typically affects the smaller arteries closer to the hands, feet, eyes, and kidneys. Patients who experience this vascular condition may see signs and symptoms in the form of open sores and ulcers around the lower body, hypertension, and a burning sensation in their feet.
What Causes Diabetic Vascular Disease?
The main cause of diabetic vascular disease is the hardening of the arteries due to diabetes not being treated properly; this causes the sugar levels in the body get too high and not counteracted by the correct insulin levels. This condition is typically found in patients who have type II diabetes, and maybe more likely to affect patients who are obese, have high cholesterol, have a history of high blood pressure, and lead a mostly sedentary or inactive lifestyle.
How Much do Treatments for Diabetic Vascular Disease Cost?
The cost of your treatment for diabetic vascular disease will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage. To get a better idea of how much your treatment for diabetic vascular disease will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our specialists.
