Medical visualization taken from human scanned data showing a man's chest organs. High levels of glucose in the bloodstream damage capillaries, the smallest blood vessels. Their walls become thicker, stiffer, and weaker. Holes form and the capillaries start to bleed and leak plasma protein. Retinal damage and kidney damage can occur with type 2 diabetes.
