I hope all of you are doing good. This is Ashish, Dr. N's son. My mom has had Type 2 diabetes for the last 28 years. It is fragile diabetes that she has and her blood sugar levels fluctuate frequently, apparaently for no particular reasons. She may have the same dinner on two evenings and per fasting blood sugar levels the next morning may vary anywhere between 40 and 250 mg. She recently developed vision haziness and consulted her eye doctor. She has been detected with Diabetes Retinopathy. I am not sure whether it is NPDR or PDR as she has some tests to go (the doctor has already done the angiography and tension test, and says that the tension in one of her eyes is high). I wanted to know from the other forum members of their experiences with DR, and the ways to cope with it. Frankly speaking, I am a bit tensed at the moment and worried about my mom. Any help/info is highly appreciated.
