I was diagnosed on the 18th of March with T2 Diabetes. My Glucose was 238, A1c was 10.1 and BP was 160/104.
I just got a new set of glasses in February from an eye exam that was done last fall. The big change was I needed Trifocals but opted for Bifocals with an additional set as task glasses with the trifocal script.
I had them for a month before my diagnosis and really liked them but I'm finding now that they are just not working right for me. I had previously experienced some blurry vision this winter, that is not what is happening now. my vision for the distance is what has changed the most.
I've been making changes in my diet since the day I was diagnosed, I've had friends who died because they did not take their diabetes seriously, (thats not going to be me) my GP prescribed 2 oral meds for the diabetes and an ACE inhibitor on the 23rd of March.
Last night my BP was 117/77 I don't have a meter yet, my GP said not to get one just yet, he wants me back in April to see him.
I'm wondering if I should have another eye exam done.
