Healthy Blood Sugar Levels
Diabetes can cause many health problems, and having diabetes also puts you at risk for other diseases. Along with an increased risk for heart disease, stroke, hypertension, kidney disease and nervous system damage, diabetes increases your risk for eye diseases and even blindness.
High blood sugar causes the lens of the eye to swell, which changes your ability to see. Blurred vision can be a symptom of serious eye problems, and it is imperative to have blood sugar levels checked regularly.
Control and Prevention
If you have diabetes, you are not doomed to develop diabetic eye disease. Although you are at risk, you can control your diabetes, so your vision is not compromised.
