Hi All Just joined today. Mainly out of complete fear !! Been a T2 for nearly 5 years now (now 50 years old) - was diagnosed in 2014 and immediately started running and low carbing. The first a1c came back as 39 which I assume was in the non diabetic range - I had the same results For the next couple of years until last year it was 44 Long story short I have always had the background retinopathy letter after my eye screenings but today received a letter stating your result shows signs of diabetic maculopathy. needless to say I’m freaking out - I did ask to see the last fundus image (July 2019) and it showed a very small amount of small white grey dots - plus I have had a blinking spot (like a camera after image) which corresponds with where the dots are - the blinking spot started May 2018 but the screening letter came back stating background retinopathy (in July 2018). Any thoughts or advice - I’m in a complete anxiety state over this !
