Hi everyone!
I am so glad to finally be here. I have has diabetes 2 for about 4yrs. I am on Byetta for now. I was on metformin 1 2xs daily before.My readings have always been good, and my A1c is below 6.
My question to anyone is:
I was just diagnosed with Glaucoma. I am 55 and I
think it has to do with the Diabetes, some say yes, others say no. What do you think?

I am not familiar with diabetes causing glaucoma. Diabetes usually affects the blood vessels. Glaucoma doesn't work the same way as retinaopathy.
