@tina_marie - I agree. He still needs to get it checked out.
@tina_marie - Perhaps, if you mentioned to Ron that you have posted on here, and We on the Forum suggests he ought to get it checked out. Do you think that he would take notice of us? (It's worth a try) If you have got undiagnosed Diabetes, the stress and worry is really going to send your blood sugars up.
if his phone is on at work I dare say it has been going off everytime we have posted . lol' it drives him nuts . Especially when hes trying to serve .
It's been warm and sunny for the last 3 weeks Eddie lad
All set to change from Friday though
I have gone a bronzey pinky colour in the sun even though I been inside a fair bit
Hopefully you will have a turn around in your health it's long overdue
Threaten to call 999. That's whatI'd do to MY stubborn old coot!
@tina_marie tell him his dinner is in the dog until he gets it sorted.
Mind u, he probables feels he's constantly at docs/hospital lately. Give him breathing space and he'll realise its not normal to have the pain and vision problems. He would be shocked if he lost his sight. Everyone believes it won't happen to them. Until it does.
I bet a few type 1s would love there vision back.
Type 2s in the past were usually in old age so their sight was starting to fail, anyway so brushed off.
However I'm decades from being in old age so I wouldnt accept failing vision very well. Nor should we.
tina_marie how has Rons diabetes progressed so quickly? Has he been ignoring diabetes for a while before diagnosis?
I'm shocked how it's affecting him so quickly!
Your right there @tina_marie! But don't clout him just yet, get his eyes fixed first then let him have it:]
Have you heard from him in the last few minutes? We're all worried about him now
I noticed that he was drinking and weeing a lot about 4 or 5 years ago but he took no notice of what I said.Then last new years eve he went for an eye test and that is where it was picked up.
no hes probably busy working . he usually sends me a txt about 4 to say what his BG levels are , as he tests before coming home . I've just done by BP and its slightly up from the other day.
I'm not surprised ! Hes a flamer as we say up here in Scotland
have messaged him and he says hes alright .
if he thinks im dumb enough to believe that he can think again.
What time does he get home?
5 if motorway traffic is ok
Will you tell him that we are all waiting to hear how he really is ? [once you've cross-questioned him]
I will do .
Hi, I had a detachment years ago, I now am going through a vitrous detachment, can take up to 2 months doctor told me, it took 3 weeks for my first one, I started seeing floaters, then bright lights, then one day suddenly I screamed!!! I thought I had spiders crawling All over my face, went hospital they checked to see eye hadn't detached, I was lucky, if this same think happens with this eye I've to go straight to hospital to get it checked as it can cause sight loss, if you see bright lights, loads of spidery sort of things or a 'curtain' across your eye get it checked straight away, as we get older we all have a vitrious detachment only some of us don't notice doctors told me, I had /have bad headaches each time, good luck take care, better safe than sorry, only have 2 eyes take care of them (hug)
in the past he's had headaches and that for him usually meant a change of prescription but he hadn't been for a check up for 6 years . Then like I said last new years eve he went and problems have been none stop . This is why I worry so much , just wondering what the next problem is going to be , I dare say will find out soon enough .
The bog standard dip stick then?
I posted this before, I have 2 tubs of Multistix to check a lot of stuff like @ickihun mentioned and they are invaluable.
