Diabetes is fast becoming public health enemy number one! Over eating and poor nutrition habits, lack of exercise and genetic disposition have made Diabetes Mellitus much too common. Diabetes affects virtually all of our organ systems but our eyes are particularly vulnerable. Diabetic retinopathy can cause loss of vision or even blindness. Many people are unaware of having diabetic retinopathy or even having the condition of diabetes. Check with your family doctor often and if diabetes is suspected, be sure to have your eyes checked.
