My brother in – law is in hospital. he is 53 and has type 1 diabetes. His creatinine is 12, calcium low enough to receive through IV, blood pressure always high, he had to get 3 units of blood for low H&H, definitely end stage renal failure, they are stabilizing him for dialysis. How long is his life expectancy ?

Hello people.
I see diabetes listed as a risk factor for heart diseases and I wonder how bad it really is to have diabetes. Is it as bad as smoking? I suppose it depends on how well diabetes is controlled but I just want to get an idea of what damage high blood sugar does to you body.
Cheers.
