You can slip into a coma from either too high or too low glucose experiences. Let's just say there are a lot of reasons for controlling your diabetes so it doesn't control you. If you think diet, exercise and testing is altering one's life try doing it without arms, legs or eyesight. I'm not trying to scare you or anything… simply answering the question you're posing which is a very good question.

Blindness, leg/arm amputation, heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, digestive system shutdown, brain damage, death.

Well, that pretty much sums it up. It is a serious disease that needs to be controlled.
Some other things are open wound, foot ulcers, which lead to the amputations.
Neuropathy and an incessant burning in your extremities.

However, if you take care of yourself then you can put off many of these things and live a long, healthy and happy life.
