Hi, I am new to the forum. I was diagnosed in May 2015 and I think I need to take my diet more seriously. For the last 48 hours I have blurred vision and very sore eyes which has scared me a little as its come on very suddenly. My first eye check is next Tuesday but I don't want to wait that long, I rang my gp but the receptionist told me to go to an opticians and said the diabetic nurse had no appointments until after the new year! I take slow release metformin but don't feel in control of my health at all at the moment. Any advice welcome!
