Summary The most common eye disease among those with type 1 or type 2 diabetes is diabetic retinopathy and this book explains the disease, how it develops, and options for treatment. Affecting more than five million Americans, the disease is caused by damage to the tiny blood vessels of the retina as the result of uncontrolled blood sugars, and is a leading cause of blindness. Diabetic retinopathy cannot be cured, however the onset can be delayed and the risk of progression can be reduced by keeping tight controls on glucose levels and making the right lifestyle choices. This guide will help both patients and their families by covering such topics as symptoms, stages of the disease, how it is diagnosed, treatment options, ways to slow its progression, and lifestyle changes that lead to better glucose control
