Question Blurred vision q?

If you are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes with blood sugar levels in the 400-500 range and it was brought back down in control to 80-120 readings,can your vision get blurry?If so,will your vision eventually get back to normal? I think mine did when I was first diagnosed.I think it took like 2 weeks. It's been so long ago I don't remember.

Your vision can definitely vary based on your blood sugar and it can take some time to readjust. It can also get funny when you go low, or back to normal and are readjusting from being high. Your vision is very sensitive to glucose, so don't change your prescription right away.

Hi D-1, yes high sugars blur your vision but it generally comes back when you get your sugars down as Cora said also.
Diabetes is NOT a death sentence, it is a Life sentence and if you take care and get your sugars down and eat properly you can live a long healthy life.
It is scarey for most of us who first get it and the more you read about it the better you will understand it.
There is much to read and learn about it here and on line. Diet and foods you can eat and not eat. Walking is wonderful to lower your BS and good for you.
Try to get your sugars under 150 and use your meter before and after meals so you know what foods raise your sugars and what you can get away with.
Read labels no matter what they say, sugar free isn't always so, so read everything till you get more educated about it.
Look up low and high glycemic foods on line. These are foods that turn to sugar faster then others. The more knowlege you have thge easier it is to deal with. Portion control is also important.
Read the boards and you will pick up a lot of information. Ask questions here and we can help.

Re: Blurred vision q?

It is just that at times, even your body will react to difering sugar levels, it is common, but must also be monitored on frequency. If is happening every week, everyday, once a month, etc., please report it to regular doctor and then go to opthalogist to get your eyes checked to be sure nothing is going on. Education is the key to healthy happiness. You need to get the eyes checked out. Good luck.

Never give up.
