How Diabetes Affects Your Eyes?

How Diabetes Affects Your Eyes?

If you are diabetic then it is important that you visit your ophthalmologist for regular check-ups. Diabetes is known to be one of main causes for blindness across all age groups. If you suffer from bouts of blurred vision then it is not likely due to a long term vision problem. It is temporary and usually occurs due to fluctuating blood sugar levels in the body.

How diabetes affects your eyes?
The lens of your eyes can swell if you are a diabetic, and this can impair your ability to see causing blurry vision. In order to rectify this problem, it is important for you to get your blood sugar levels under optimal levels. This entire procedure of reducing blood sugar levels may take three months or more.

Eye problems that are caused by diabetes-
The major eye problems that can occur due to diabetes are-

  1. Cataract: Cataract occurs when the lens of your eyes become foggy or cloudy. Although cataract mostly occurs to people who are middle aged or above sixty, you can get affected by this disorder at an earlier age if you are diabetic. Also, the deterioration or clouding of the lens progresses at a much faster rate than usual. Cataracts lead to an inability to focus as the retina is covered by cloudy layer.
  2. Glaucoma: This is another disorder that can occur due to diabetes. This is characterized by the buildup of pressure in the eye due to the fluids within it not draining properly. This intense pressure damages the nerves and blood vessels in the eyes, thus impairing your ability to see.
  3. Diabetic Retinopathy: Diabetic retinopathy is a disorder characterized by damage to the vessels in the retina that carry blood. It can occur if you have either of the type 2 or type 1 diabetes. If not treated in time it can lead to blindness.

If you have a history of diabetes or even borderline diabetic tendencies, it is highly advisable to constantly check your blood sugar levels and also get your eye checked at regular intervals, especially if you feel even the minutest vision problems.

Dear Dr. my Glucose fasting 110 mg/dL andPP 149 mg/dL. Shall I take dates/jam/honey.
Mr. lybrate-user, FBS 110 mg & PP149 mg /100 ml, is referred as pre-diabetes level. It means you have a tendency to develop diabetes any time during coming years, unless precautions are taken. A modified lifestyle is needed to be adapted to prevent or postpone developing of diabetes. Which means avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items sweetened aerated drinks, sweet corn syrup containing food products and high fat milk products. Plus daily exercise of 1 hour and refraining from smoking and alcohol. Thanks.

Suppliments are given basically to people who are not taking sufficient balanced diet or have some specific problems. If you are eating healthy food (avoid processed and packaged food items including beverages) with fruits and vegetables and maintain an ideal weight then there is no need to worry. Go for regular health check-ups with your doctor and do the tests advised. Read more about healthy lifestyle for Diabetic people and adapt the good habits.

Does puffer rice increase blood sugar level. Kindly advise few good snacks option.

Does puffer rice increase blood sugar level. Kindly advise few good snacks option.
You have to understand that anything we eat is metabolised and converted into energy and the excess amount of calories is stored into different forms for future requirement. In case of Diabetes, since there is less insulin secreted or almost no insulin produced, the sugar produced in the body is not properly used up (in the absence or deficiency of insulin ). The sugar levels thus increase in the blood above the normal levels. High glucose levels start damaging at cellular and tissue levels and create complications in the long run. So, one can eat foods that release sugar slowly (low GI food) and thereby avoid the upsurge of glucose levels suddenly. Avoid or eat in moderation processed and packeged food and beverages. Eat a wholesome meal which is nutritious and balanced (calories required by you would depend upon the activity level and ideal weight ). Include fruits and vegetables everyday as they are good source of fibre and nutrients. (Have unpolished or organic food items if possible ). You can have rice ot rice products also or any natural product keeping in mind the nutritional value and your total calorie requirements in the whole day. Take the advise of a nutritionist who can help you customise your diet (a variety of food which is also tasty) based on your traditional food habits. Read more about diet, nutrition and healthy lifestyle from the internet and adapt all the right things in your daily routine. Go for regular health check up and follow up with your doctor. If you have any health problems then you can also take Homeopathy which is safe and effective and can be taken with the regular medicines. You can contact me if needed.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. There are some benefits claimed regarding blood glucose control with black grapes. It is supposed to stimulate insulin secretion and reduces insulin resistance This is said to be due to presence of resveritrol in them. However, there are no authentic clinical studies to support these claims. Most fruits contain antioxidants and flavonoids, which offer multiple benefits. But grapes are generally very sweet, so it is always good if one consumes a very limited quantity. Thanks.

Its on higher side. U can control it by lifestyle changes Adopt an active lifestyle. Do yoga or walking or gym or whatever suits you Reduce stress and anxiety Avoid over consumption of soy products Manage your diet, stress and sleep. Your entire endocrine system responds to sleep deprivation and to periods of extreme stress Hope this helps take care.
