Hello all, I am a 25-year old male with juvenile diabetes. I was diagnosed in 2001 and to be quite honest I have never taken care of myself. Early on I was in the hospital often, but have been able to manage it enough now that I almost am never sick. I never test and up until recently I was eating more candy than a kid on Halloween. I am on an insulin regimen that consists of Lantis and Humalog.
With this all being said I come to my real concern…my eyes. Since graduating from college I have begun to take better care of myself. I exercise regularly, I have been watching what I eat, but I am still not testing. Within the last month and a half or so I have noticed that I am having problems focusing on things. Things that are at a little bit of a distance anyways. This has concerned me quite a bit and am wondering what this could be from. From previous discussions I have read, it seems that people who have high A1C levels and high glucose levels seem to have this problem until they get their levels under control. I am open to any ideas and I am very serious about wanting to take care of myself. Please help. Thanks!
