I was diagnosed diabetic just a few weeks ago, although my doctor suspects I have had it for three to six months. I started to experience some of the symptoms after I ceased taking another medication, Testosterone. The initial symptoms were excessive thrist and urination, and dry mouth. I also experienced exhaustion. I had assumed this was all related to my testosterone levels. Surprise, surprise…
I started to experience blurred vision earlier this month. For about a week all of my distance vision was blurry, but my near vision was great. This was before I was diagnosed, so I went to an optometrist and had my eyes checked. I was told my sight is perfect but my focusing was weak. He told me I probably had a spike in blood sugar (this is when the alarm bells started to ring). A week later my eye sight was perfect again. Well, for the last week my near vision is affected by the inability to focus. This is driving me crazy!!!
How long can I expect this to continue? The optometrist told me to wait three months after started the medication before getting my eyes checks.
I am not sure if this matters, but my early morning fasting blood sugar levels have gone from 344 on 31 December to 188 today. Apparently I am in some form of control at the moment.
How long does blurry vision last, how often does it come back, and is it affected by current blood sugar levels? Thanks, everybody.
