  • So Grant told me that he sometimes has trouble seeing things at a distance, but it comes and goes.  It's not everyday.  Often it's first thing in the morning and then it gets better later in the day.

    Does this sound like something you've heard before?  I told him that it was probably high bg, but he said it hasn't been that high and it doesn't necessarily happen in conjunction.  He might be high and vision is fine, or in range and vision isn't great.

    Any ideas?  D related? His past few A1C have been in the 10s.  :o >:(

  • Right after dx Annelies had an already scheduled eye appointment...doc held off on an rx until her next a1c because she was 11.1 at dx. Next a1c was down and her vision was back to normal.  Within the year she did end up needing glasses, but that was genetics at fault

  • That's what I thought too.   :-\
    I had already told him as much, but I told him that I put it out to you guys and you agree with me.  I hope this is the wake up call he needs to get his A1C down.

  • Idk but it sounds like cumulative BGs.

    Is there something we can do to help him, brainstorm some ideas to help fill the gaps of when he's not testing etc.?

  • You are sweet Leslie, but I think it's a matter of him deciding that he can't afford to ignore it.  He wants to be like everyone else who just eats without a thought.  To not take the time to stop and test, to look up carbs, to be bothered with having d.  :-\

    He is good about at lot of it (or A1C would be 14+) but it's the day to day grind that gets him down.  :'(

  • Sounds like Zephyr (wanting to ignore it all and be like everyone else). I completely understand that feeling but I hate it with all my heart. Scares me to death but I have to trust that it will get better. Hope Grant can see the bigger picture soon, too.

    No.  Remember he lost his receiver that we just bought in May.  We tried resetting the old receiver and it just won't work anymore.  Constantly says out of range though it's right beside him.

    I appreciate everyone's love and concern.  <hug>

    I'd think it could very well be D related.

    Mackenzie was wearing glasses about a year before her diagnosis. Terrible eyesight. Then she got her diagnosis  (her A1C was 17 at diagnosis) and started insulin. A few months in and she didn't need them anymore.  It was amazing.

    Well she might be wearing them again.  But for 2 years she was good to go.

    It's hard to have to deal with D when you just want to be like everyone else.  These poor kids.
