You have ever seen the people with diabetes problem around you. Do you know diabetes is one of the biggest diseases that cannot be cured? Diabetes is related to our blood sugar level. When it gets high, it causes a wide range of unwelcome side effects. There are two types of diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2. People who are having type 1 diabetes require injected in their self to control the blood sugar level. And Type 2 diabetes can be managed through exercises, diet and medications. There are millions of people who are facing type 2 of diabetes. If we let it uncontrolled blood sugar level, it leads many unwanted side effects. The diabetes also can cause the vision problems and it can lead the blindness if we ignore the blood sugar level.
The vision issues which are caused by diabetes are called diabetic retinopathy. The complications of the diabetes include retinal detachment, vitreous hemorrhages and blindness. That’s why the eye doctors recommend keeping a routine eye exam if you are a diabetic patient. An eye doctor ensures you aren’t already in early stages of diabetic retinopathy.
The people who are already dealing with diabetes for longer periods are higher at the risks of diabetic retinopathy. By routine eye exams, it can be tracked, how the disease is spreading. Otherwise there is no treatment, if you are in early stage of diabetic treatment.
Another risk factor associated with diabetic retinopathy is based on your blood pressure. If you are already a diabetic patient and have a high blood pressure then you are placed at higher risks of diabetic retinopathy.
