Leaky blood vessels can be a serious condition associated with diabetes that can cause blindness and stroke. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent this condition such as diet and exercise.
How Does It Start?
Capillaries can start to bleed when they experience excess strain over a period of time as a result of a fluctuation in blood sugar levels.
The capillaries in the eyes are vulnerable to the ballooning and hemorrhaging of blood vessels, leading to blindness.
Leaky blood vessels are often detected by adding dye to the blood. Areas that are leaking this dyed blood will become stained with the dye.
The University of Edinburgh found that one-fifth of all strokes are caused by leaking blood vessels in the brain, which is caused by weakened arteries.
Leaking blood vessels are improved by eating fewer sugars and artificial sweeteners, and performing vigorous exercise that improves circulation in the body.
