I have diabetes, well 2 weeks ago I started to have vision problems/blurry vision, so I went to see my Dr. He raised my insulin from 1 shot of 10 units a day to 4 shots a day. I have been doing this now for 3 days and my eye site is back to normal. My sugar runs over 300 all the time, so I recommend to anyone that is starting to have vision problems or blurry vision to see your Dr right away. He is also sending me to a Diabetic Specialist

It is great that you thought to go to your doctor so quickly. This is what makes diabetes such a sneaky disease. It is a quiet disease that strikes all over. Keeping on top of our levels is our first defense. Being aware of what is happening is vital, so know your body. Pay attention to when it is telling you something is wrong. You will be glad you did. Good job Lindy, I hope that your levels are going down too. Seeing an endo will help you a lot. They understand the whole spectrum far better than a family doctor.
