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.

Has anyone experienced acute pancreatitis due to Trulicity?

It's been three months since I was in Or other meds that work through the pancreas? I ended up in the hospital, have now been put on only insulin and metformin. It's been about three months since I was in the hospital and now the pains are starting again and am waiting for a call from the doctor for blood work.
