From Oglala, South Dakota, USA:
What are the results on people with diabetes who do not check themselves as told to do?
Most patients become disillusioned at some point and will have a period of not taking good care of their diabetes. This is generally not too much of a problem, if it's a short time. Long term neglect is associated with a dramatic increase in acute and long term problems with eye disease, kidney problems and many other circulatory diseases.
