Anyone who has been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes is at risk for developing what is known as critical limb ischemia, a condition in which arteries supplying blood to the limbs form plaques inside their walls. When this happens not enough oxygen can reach the cells, and the cells develop ischemia, which can lead to cell death. Various medical people consider it an advanced form of peripheral artery disease (PAD), while others consider it a separate condition.

Type 2 Diabetes - Is It Possible To Predict Who Will Develop Severe Eye Problems?
One of the complications of Type 2 diabetes is called diabetic retinal neurodegeneration, meaning the back of the eye where light forms a picture, loses its nerve function as it becomes thinner.

Type 2 Diabetes - Does Diabetes Affect the Visual Part of Your Brain Before Causing Eye Damage?
Having Type 2 diabetes is known to raise the risk of developing vision loss. Among older people with Type 2 diabetes, between 10 and 20 percent have problems with their eyes, which weaken with age in all people. Approximately 90 percent of diabetics will have some blood vessel changes in their eyes after having diabetes for more than twenty-five years. The loss of vision is caused by retinopathy, a condition in which the back of the eye is damaged. The back of the brain or occiput often shows damage as well. The occipital lobes process information brought from the eye to the brain via the optic nerve. It might be assumed damage to the retina could lead to shrinkage of the occipital lobes (use it or lose it), but now it appears the occiput can sustain diabetic damage even before retinopathy takes place.

Type 2 Diabetes - Drinking Alcohol Raises the Risk of Leg Arterial Disease
Lower extremity arterial disease, or LEAD, also known as peripheral arterial disease (PAD), or peripheral vascular disease (PVD) of the legs, can be a complication of Type 2 diabetes. Blood heavily laden with sugar damages the blood vessels, leading to poor circulation and clots. Where blood vessels are damaged cholesterol, calcium, and blood cells that cause clotting, can congregate to form a clot, or thrombus, further lowering the amount of oxygen-rich blood going to the legs and feet. A decrease in oxygenated blood being transported through the legs and feet can lead to oxygen starvation in the muscles.
