Diabetes- Vascular Complications

Diabetes is a disease that affects the regulation of insulin in the body, the hormone that controls blood sugar. The cardiovascular complications of diabetes are life-threatening and disabling.

Over time diabetes can adversely affect the circulation of the eyes, kidneys and the blood vessels.  Diabetic vascular disease commonly affects the feet and can take the form of:

  • Ulcers
  • Wound healing
  • Minor foot injuries

Our vascular surgeons have the long-standing experience and knowledge in evaluating and treating complications of diabetic vascular disease.  Often wound care management alone is sufficient to manage ulcers without the need for extensive vascular reconstruction. 

When you are evaluated for treatment at Hopkins, your vascular surgeon will discuss your diabetic complications with your other treating physicians to determine the best form of care.
