Why And When Does Failure To Diagnose Diabetes Lead To Complications?

Reasons for failure to diagnose diabetes or a delay in diagnosing it can be caused by a number of factors including:

  • High or low levels of hemoglobin (HbA(1C)) (used to diagnose diabetes mellitus) when the changes in levels can be contributed to or caused by other factors leading to a missed diabetes diagnosis;
  • GP's not recognising the symptoms of diabetes and failing to test for it;
  • Ulcers or other medical complications for patients with diabetes not being dealt with sufficiently quickly, leading to complications.

Medical Complications When Diabetes Not Diagnosed

If diabetes is not diagnosed at all or quickly, there can be incredibly serious complications for the patient, including the following:

  • Amputation of limbs
  • Birth Defects
  • Blindness
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Kidney Failure
  • Skin infections
  • Strokes

Any of these problems can be incredibly serious and even fatal.
