Symptoms and Complications of Diabetes - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: You or someone you know may have been diagnosed with diabetes. This video will show you what it is and why it's important to keep it under control. People can have different symptoms with diabetes. Common symptoms include feeling very hungry, feeling very thirsty, urinating often, fatigue, blurry vision, and slow healing of wounds. People with type 1 diabetes may also experience weight loss. Symptoms of type 1 diabetes usually develop suddenly. They may make a person feel very ill. On the other hand, symptoms of type 2 diabetes usually develop slowly. They may be mild enough so they are hard to notice. Some people have no symptoms. If your high blood sugar level isn't treated, life-threatening complications can result. For example, you can become severely ill with a condition called diabetic ketoacidosis. It's more common in people with type 1 diabetes. Here's how it happens. Because you have little or no insulin in your blood, your cells can't get the sugar they need for energy. As a result, your body turns to fats and proteins for energy. As your body breaks down the fats, certain substances, known as ketone bodies, build up in your blood. This results in a condition called ketosis. If ketones build up to dangerously high levels in your blood, you may develop diabetic ketoacidosis, or DKA. This may result in coma or death. If your blood sugar level drops too low, you may experience a serious complication of diabetes called hypoglycemia. A common way this can happen is by taking too much diabetic medication or not eating. Too much insulin or oral diabetic medication can cause too much sugar to go into your cells. Then your blood sugar level drops down too low. Certain organs, such as the brain, need a constant energy supply to work properly. Because the brain's main source of energy is sugar, it's the first organ affected by lower sugar levels. When your brain cells, called neurons, don't get enough sugar, they start to malfunction. Symptoms such as nervousness, shakiness, and confusion can result. If your blood sugar keeps dropping, your brain does not have enough energy to work properly. This can result in seizures or diabetic coma. If your blood sugar level remains high over time, long-term health problems can occur. They include heart and blood vessel disease, stroke, blindness, nerve damage, kidney disease, and amputation of a foot or leg. If you have questions about diabetes or the medications for it, speak with your doctor. It is important to take your medications as directed by your doctor. Tell him or her about any side effects you have.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"[I] have come to rely upon the Doe Report and your great staff of illustrators for all my medical malpractice cases. … Please know that I enthusiastically recommend you to all my colleagues.
