Ten days after my diagnosis and life was pretty miserable as I started to come to terms with what diabetes means to me. BUT... something really strange has happened and I wonder how common it is. I’ve been shortsighted since my early teens. I’ve never driven without glasses. I woke up one morning and my eyesight had shifted. I could see number plates on cars parked on my road. Everything looked like it had black lines round it. I went to my GP and my opticians. Had a full check for retinopathy and it’s clear but my eyesight has completely corrected itself! The drop in blood sugar levels from LC altered my eyes (I did, initially, worry I’d been T2 since 1980 but have been told that’s not the case - phew!). The bad news is that because it’s a focal shift I now need reading glasses but in every sky there’s a little cloud. Two weeks on and it’s stayed constant. My new party trick is reading signs a long way off. Admittedly it hasn’t resulted in a flood of party invitations!
