What Are The Symptoms Of Diabetic Retinopathy?

Often, there are no symptoms in the early stages of the disease, nor is there any pain. Don't wait for symptoms. Be sure to have a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once a year. Blurred vision may occur when the macula-the part of the retina that provides sharp central vision-swells from leaking fluid. This condition is called macular edema. If new blood vessels grow on the surface of the retina, they can bleed into the eye and block vision. This answer is based on source information from National Eye Institute. The following are the symptoms of diabetic retinopathy -- which occurs when abnormal blood sugar levels damage small blood vessels in the retina (the innermost layer of the eye): Blurred vision Fluctuating vision Distorted vision Floating spots In the nonproliferative stage of diabetic retinopathy, there may be no symptoms if the problem is mild. But as the problem becomes more severe, macular edema may develop. This can cause a noticeable decline in central vision, especially as the swelling increases. An eye exam can detect even the earliest changes, such as: Leaking blood vessels Retinal swelling (macular edema) Fatty deposits on the retina Damaged nerve tissue Sma Continue reading >>

    @BeccaBee83: Honestly, I wouldn’t worry *that* much about it, because getting your sugars too low is way more of a problem than them being a little too high. If you were to add more insulin, you run the risk of getting hypoglycemic in the middle of the night, which is not good. Definitely stick to what your doctors recommended. One thing you could try is a little more exercise, as exercise will help to re-model the cells that have become insulin resistant (but once again, don’t over-do it because you don’t want to get hypoglycemic).

    Another suggestion for exercise. My FI is a type 1 diabetic and exercise makes a huge difference in his A1C and BG numbers. Good luck!

    Wow! What an overwhelming response! Thank you all so much for your thoughtful replies.
    I keep trying to remind myself not to obsess about these numbers, because really they are in a good range. Being a little too high is better than being a LOT too high or even worse like you said, way too low.
    As for exercise, I’ve been exercising 30 minutes every day, as suggested by the diabetes counselor. I’m also counting my carb intake for each meal and then totalling them for the entire day. As a general rule I’m supposed to do 15 carbs per snack, 30-45 per meal and not to exceed 175 carbs per day. I’ve been sticking to this diet and exercise regime and I’ve actually lost 12 lbs. since the beginning of my pregnancy. My doctor isn’t too considered as long as the baby is measuring okay and I’m eating enough. In the beginning I wasn’t eating nearly enough (probably due to morning sickness), but now I’m doing much better. I’m trying to keep everything I eat healthy, though I admit that my cravings do make me slip up once in a while.
    It’s so hard and frustrating to watch other pregnant ladies stuff whatever/whenever they want in their face, while I have to be counting carbs and pricking my finger several times throughout the day. I suppose it’s helping me to lose weight, which could be a blessing. Maybe it’ll make it that much easier to lose the weight after delivery? After nine months of eating healthy and carefully, I am hoping that it’ll be a lifestyle change rather than something I did while I was pregnant!!!
    Fasting numbers are SO hard to control. Sometimes I’m down to 81 and then other days I’m at 112. I don’t understand the rhyme or reason to it. In the beginning I used to think that the longer I waited, the lower my numbers would be, but then I soon realize the opposite happened. My liver started doing a glucose “dump” (as my diabetes counselor calls it) and my numbers were higher.
    Last night I tried a small bowl of cereal with milk before bed. Then I woke up around 5am (had to pee – surprise, surprise! haha) and decided to test my blood sugar for the heck of it. I was shocked to see 78 as my number!!!!!! WAHHOOOOO! Finally I did something right!!!
    I don’t know if it was because of the “snack” choice before bed last night or if it was because I tested my fasting blood sugar after 8 hours instead of the normal 11-12 hours that I usually wait. Maybe I shouldn’t be testing my fasting so long afterwards?
    I used to eat dinner at 6pm, then I wouldn’t have anything until the next morning after I woke up. I would test my fasting blood sugar around 7am when I woke up and then have breakfast. Perhaps I was waiting too long to test my fasting numbers???
    Also, when I exercise before bed it makes my numbers skyrocket – the doctor and diabetes counselor advised against that one in my particular case. Instead they want me to do 10 minutes of light exercise throughout the day, which really seems to be helping my daytime numbers, which they say are perfect!
    It really does help to hear that I’m not alone in this, because all I see around me is my pregnant friends/relatives who can eat as much of whatever they want and it’s really frustrating. I get so upset that I have to do injections every night and prick my fingers multiple times every day. I just wish I could be normal.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy, also known as diabetic eye disease, is a medical condition in which damage occurs to the retina due to diabetes and is a leading cause of blindness.[1] It affects up to 80 percent of people who have had diabetes for 20 years or more.[2] At least 90% of new cases could be reduced if there were proper treatment and monitoring of the eyes.[3] The longer a person has diabetes, the higher his or her chances of developing diabetic retinopathy.[4] Each year in the United States, diabetic retinopathy accounts for 12% of all new cases of blindness. It is also the leading cause of blindness for people aged 20 to 64 years.[5] Signs and symptoms[edit] Normal vision The same view with diabetic retinopathy. Emptied retinal venules due to arterial branch occlusion in diabetic retinopathy (fluorescein angiography) Diabetic retinopathy often has no early warning signs. Even macular edema, which can cause rapid vision loss, may not have any warning signs for some time. In general, however, a person with macular edema is likely to have blurred vision, making it hard to do things like read or drive. In some cases, the vision will get better or worse during the day. In the first s Continue reading >>

    What is "too high" for gestational?

    Hey everyone,
    So my friend, Tangie, is 4 months pregnant, and she was just diagnosed as a gestational diabetic. Being a diabetic myself, I've been helping her monitor her diet and exercise. Her sugars are normally 100 (5.6), and her highest EVER in the past month was 129 (7.2). The doctor wants her to take insulin for the rest of her pregnancy, saying her fasting numbers should be between 70 - 90 (3.9 - 5)in the morning. This seems a little extreme to me, and I think insulin may do more harm than good to her. I'm really confused, since I thought a normal blood sugar level was between 80 - 120 (4.4 - 6.7). Is it different for gestational diabetics?
    Robyn

    Actually, when you're pregnant most OB's like to see your blood sugars in the high 70's-100 if at all possible - especially for a non-diabetic. I don't think her numbers are all that bad either, but the moment when they start going up (and they will if she's gestational), I wouldn't hesitate encouraging her to take insulin. The OB probably suggested it as a precaution or to prevent her sugars from sky rocketing - and they can better figure out her units now than later and make adjustments when they are needed. Pretty hard to hear, I know. She's not doing bad so far!!

  3. Tiger Lily

    Robyn, the guidelines are much stricter for gestational diabetes because of the risk of damage to the fetus by high blood glucose levels
    she will have excursions beyond what her ob/gyn wants her at, but hopefully those are few and far between
    insulin is the safest med for a pregnant diabetic
    she has an almost 100% chance of getting type 2 diabetes within 10 years of her gestational diagnosis.......... i hope she can follow diet/exercise/meds closely and avoid that diagnosis

Diabetic Eye Problems

If you have diabetes, your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. Over time, this can damage your eyes. The most common problem is diabetic retinopathy. It is a leading cause of blindness in American adults. Your retina is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of your eye. You need a healthy retina to see clearly. Diabetic retinopathy damages the tiny blood vessels inside your retina. You may not notice it at first. Symptoms can include Blurry or double vision Rings, flashing lights, or blank spots Dark or floating spots Pain or pressure in one or both of your eyes Trouble seeing things out of the corners of your eyes Treatment often includes laser treatment or surgery, with follow-up care. Two other eye problems can happen to people with diabetes. A cataract is a cloud over the lens of your eye. Surgery helps you see clearly again. Glaucoma happens when pressure builds up in the eye, damaging the main nerve. Eye drops or surgery can help. If you have diabetes, you should have a complete eye exam every year. Finding and treating problems early may save your vision. NIH: National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases Continue reading >>
