PRO -TIP The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) showed that strict control of blood sugar with insulin (In type 1 diabetes) decreases the progression of diabetic retinopathy, as well as nephropathy and neuropathy.

-So the better a diabetic’s blood sugar is controlled, whether that is with diet, exercise, and/or medication, the less chance of developing diabetic eye disease and other systemic complications.

    Can high blood pressure affect your eyes?

  6. PJ

    I went to see an eye surgeon to check an ERM in the left eye. He told me it was stable at this time but also said there was a small trace of some bleeding in the left of the eye. A tiny trace but he just advised to come back next year for another check-up or come before if any symptoms appear. And also, watch the sugar levels as I'm a diabetic. It kind of left me wondering about the bleed.

    PS: It's just annoying you sometimes get even more worried after seeing a doctor than before. Now, I'm wondering will there be more bleeding and how can I feel all right waiting until another check-up?

  7. Loius Frank

    I never thought my STD will come to an end, it's really a miracle after taking Dr Ogoh Herbal medication .@

    hi i just want to know when must i go for an eyetest for the use of contact lense and my eyes are as follows one is like a rugby ball and the other one like a soccer ball can you pls help tnx

  12. Jeanne Wagner

    I am Type II, very controlled sugars in the mid 5 range. I had no diabetic retinopathy as we were checking to be safe.. I have quit sugar, I have quit wheat and gluten. I have quit those nasty inflammatory seed oils. For 5 years I have stuck to natural foods, very low carb. That has to be protective. Last year had chemo, and my sugars went so high. My PC added a secondary medication to help keep them lower but it seems the chemo did a lot of damage. Even months after it was over the sugars stayed higher than before and my A1c increased to 6.2 but now back to 5.6. After another retinopathy eye check after chemo the doctor said I now have diabetic retinopathy, the early stage and he wanted to start needle treatment immediately to keep it under control. I was very upset and had a lot of questions. First off I'm terrified of the needles… I might flinch or jerk out of fear or some kind or knee jerk reaction… that could damage my eye even further. But I had a question of whether the treatment itself would also damage my eye. He wouldn't answer, had a very set look on his face, and turned his back to me and said 'we'll see you in 3 months." I'm thinking of finding another doctor who will answer my questions without making me feel bad. And also who might have a little bit of compassion. Are there even any natural practices that one can do to help? I will do it if I have to, but really I will need a sedative. Just thinking about needles coming towards my eyes makes my blood pressure rise.

  13. Christopher Morreall

    I get eye injections for my retinopathy. I'm glad my eyes are being restored.

  14. Yr Ysf

    Very nice explanation, thank you. I was diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy disease last week. My left eye is mild stage but right eye is moderate stage. Doctor please tell me whether eating 1 banana everyday is bad for retinopathy disease. To control my diabetes I dont eat any grains , however every morning I make a banana shake made with banana, plain yogurt and water. Is fruit bad for retinopathy disease ?

  15. Folake Bamigboye

    Times used to be very Challenging, I had the worst days of my life living with Type 2 diabetes, I appreciate you so much Dr Igudia, You have restored me my life that was lost already . Thank you so much for curing me of my diabetes with your natural Herbs

    Testifying about Dr Igudia on YouTube is a great joy I have ever had in a while because this man transformed my life In all ramification. Thanks doctor for putting an end to my type 2 Diabetes’s and putting a smile on my face again.

    I’m so new at this and also scared I would admit I went years not believing diabetes can mess up your eyesight. And this where I am now I have had 2 laser treatment on the bad eye in which the veil has already happen and goin for my other treatment in other eye in Jan 2023 then they are talkin about injections ok! Anything to help my sight cause I’m a designer and take care of my mother. So I need my eyes lbvvvs . My question is even with treatments and injections can u still loose vision. And or blindness cause I hear u can and u won’t so I’m asking a doctor (u) and second question with the veil like sight will it get better or is it permanent even after treatment? And third question why do my eyes feel heavy sometimes especially the one that damage the most ?
    Sorry for the long comment I just have questions that I feel my doctor is ignoring or I need reassurance idk🤷🏽‍♂️ thanks jn advance
