Why is high blood sugar bad?

  Since your blood is everywhere in your body, damage can happen anywhere.  For example, the pancreas cells will become damaged and this will affect insulin production and over time, the pancreas can become permanently damaged.  High blood sugar hardens the blood vessels that carry your blood and this combined with elevated glucose can cause strokes, heart attacks, kidney damage, blindness, poor circulation, nerve damage and a suppressed immune system.
