The Vascular Center at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, offers patients comprehensive care for circulatory system disorders. Our vascular surgeons work closely with The Diabetes Center at Mercy or primary care physicians in the community when patients are faced with vascular-related diabetes conditions.
Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to vascular disease like blockages in the arteries. High sugar levels can damage blood vessels and impact circulation, especially between the knee and foot. Vascular diseases are a major cause of death and disability in people with diabetes.
Diabetes-linked vascular diseases include:
Treatment for conditions resulting from diabetes will vary from monitoring to testing to surgery if required. Doppler ultrasounds are non-invasive screenings that can provide images of blood flow and potential blood clots or aneurysms. If vascular conditions are discovered, they are monitored and treated depending on the severity and the patient’s overall health.
Diabetes patients and their primary care physicians determine when assistance from vascular specialists is required. Because diabetes affects blood vessel health, vascular referrals are very likely.
