I have had diabetes for 42 years and I luckily don’t have any complications. I have 2 eye floaters though and wonder if they can be diabetes related?
Sylvia Dunleavy Love seeing this, being positive and kicking diabetes ass 👏
Any big tip to give myself I have it 6 years xxx I’m doing alright but could be better
Daniela Penelope Dominguez Yes! Please go get that looked it. I just had a Vitrectomy surgery July 24th. Oct. 2018 my blood vessels exploded in my eyes,I went thru months of lasers and injections till finally I had my surgery.
David Rundo Yes they could be Could have diabetic retinopathy. You should get it checked out by an ophthalmologist
Charlotte Blaylock Forester Just saw my eye dr yesterday. After doing my diabetic eye exam he told me floaters come with age & not diabetes
Daniela Penelope Dominguez I have Diabetic retinopathy,I’m blind in my right and my left started to go bad. I’m only 31 yrs. 😔 it’s been very hard but I’m doing much better.
Jenn Taylor I have had floaters forever and my eyes are fine. I don’t have any complications either.
Jeff Webster See your local opthamalogist about it. I had floaters back in December and mine said it had nothing to do with my diabetes. He said he couldn’t see any evidence of diabetes in my eyes. Might have to deal with cataract eventually, but not diabetes related. Doctors can give you some steroid eye drops and make the floaters go away. Easy Peasy.
Sandi Crawford My eye had a floater then boom, it blew up and I couldn’t see out of my eye. Dr. said it could drain on it’s own so I waited 9 months then had to have a vitrectomy then my other eye started. Please go in and have it check asap.
Leigh Rollins My husband has floaters but not diabetes; I have T1d but no floaters. They are pretty common.
David Weinstein Macular degeneration
Could lead to blindness
Jake Esposito Yes I get them often from blood vessels breaking in eye but could be age related as well its in best interest go see eye doctor asap take it from me I waited too long last year and it cost me vision in right eye
Tammy Young Miller Not necessarily. I had my floaters long before I had diabetes. In fact, the healthier I get, the floaters become less and less.
Paul J Berberich Sr. See a retinal specialist. They can take pictures of your eyes and see if any problems are lurking. Floaters are, I think, small leaks from the blood vessels in your eyes.
Jeff Webster Could just be simple floaters. See an opthamologist. I had them in December, prescribed steroid eye drops and were completely gone in three weeks.
My successful Diabetes Treatment Story
My doctor diagnosed me with diabetes just over a year ago, at the time I was prescribed Metformin. I went to the some diabetes related websites and learned about the diet they suggested. I started the diet right away and I was very loyal to it. However, after weeks of being on the diet it never helped, my blood sugar didn’t drop like I wanted it to. My personal physician wasn’t much help either, he didn’t really seem to give me any other options besides my prescription and the usual course of insulin. I was about to give up and then I discovered a great treatment method. The guide was authored by one of the leading professionals in the world of diabetes research, Dr. Max Sidorov. This is a guide that that shows you, in a very simple way, how to conquer the disease without traditional methods. I have to say that since I’ve found the guide and followed it, I’ve not only improved my health but I’ve also lost weight and improved other aspects as well. My activities have increased and I have a ton of energy! It is my goal to share the this diabetes treatment method as much as possible to show people there’s more to the disease than traditional schools of thought and you can find your own path to healing with natural methods.
