My husband was diagnosed with T2 just over four weeks ago. It was very sudden and traumatic, including a 4 night stay in hospital. Once his BG stabilised, he was discharged and all was well. He was prescribed Metformin and insulin and over the next week or so, his levels dropped into the 5-8 range. We were warned about bluriness, but his vision became really, really poor. He had also had ongoing visual disturbance for over a year, but did not seek medical help or an eye test due to extreme health anxiety. He felt like something wasn't right with his vision. We have just got back from a diabetes eye check (we decided to do this ourselves, rather than wait, on our DN's advice.). Notes from optician are that there are extensive changes, vitreous haemorrhages and exudates. He also failed the Amsler test. I know that none of this is good news and he is beside himself at the moment. Please can anyone share any glimmers of hope?
