Is There Any Pain Involved In Diabetic Retinopathy Treatments And What Is Recovery Like?

A DiabetesTeam Member said:

I live in Red Deer and have to travel to Edmonton for the injection in the eye. I was informed that the left eye was leaking. If I did nothing it would eventually become a problem in the right eye as… read more

Trulicity

Trulicity

If you are a Trulicity user can you tell me what side effects you have had? I have experienced nausea, having to go to the bathroom 5 times in a row to go #2, a tightening of my stomach area and extreme eyesight changes since starting on Trulicity. The good news: my blood sugars went from over 500 to waking up to blood sugars as low as 151 and although my up close vision has worsened my distance vision has corrected itself to where I don't need glasses.

How Do Sugar Levels Affect Blurry Vision?

How Do Sugar Levels Affect Blurry Vision?

For years I have been nearsighted. I would have to squint sometimes to see street signs while driving or read the page numbers on the wall at church. Then my undiagnosed diabetes had my blood glucose reaching 405 this June and my vision was immensely worse. I couldn't see clearly more than 10 or so inches from my face

But, as my levels… read more

What Diets Are Out There For Extream Meat-eaters?

What Diets Are Out There For Extream Meat-eaters?

I have tried for years now, but I just can't stand Fruits or Veggies. I am a very serious meat eater, I like it rare and lots of it. But I know changes have to be made, but I will skip a meal if it's mostly Veggies, and all fruit makes my sugars go sky hi. Is there a solution, or should I just be happy and eat what I want to have a better quality of life?
