A doctor in a Diabetes Hospital in China says that diabetic retinopathy is retina imperceptible blood-vessel lesions because angiemphraxiz can lead to deficiency of blood and oxygen and as a result, some new blood vessels will appear which are very tender and vitreous hemorrhage and retina damage easily occur.
Diabetic retinopathy can be classified into two types. One without new blood vessels is called non-proliferative retinopathy and another one with new blood vessels is called proliferative retinopathy. In addition, it is called ‘macular edema” if effusion due to capillaries damage builds up in the macular area.
Early non-proliferative retinopathy only need regular examinations but when it develops into macular edema, severe non-proliferation retinopathy or proliferative retinopathy needs a treatment in order to reduce the chance of impairing vision.
There is no sign in diabetic retinopathy so people firstly diagnosed with diabetes need a balanced diet, moderate physical activity, controlling blood sugar and blood fat. An eye examination is necessary and it is needed to do eye examination annually. Frequent eye examinations follow onset of diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes people should highly alert the onset of eye problems.
As long as diabetes people control blood sugar and have regular eye examination, it is possible for them to keep eye healthy.
Besides eye problem, diabetes can lead to other complications like kidney disease, heart problems, foot complication, skin complication, high blood pressure. People with diabetes also need to pay more attention to these diseases. Controlling blood sugar is the key to prevent diabetic complications.
