Frequently Asked Questions

Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects how your body uses blood sugar (glucose). There are different types of diabetes, including type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes, each with its own causes and management strategies.

Effective diabetes management involves a combination of healthy eating, regular physical activity, monitoring blood sugar levels, taking prescribed medications (if needed), and making lifestyle adjustments to maintain optimal health.

Common symptoms of diabetes may include increased thirst, frequent urination, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, blurred vision, and slow-healing wounds. However, symptoms can vary depending on the type of diabetes.

Treatment for diabetic eye conditions such as diabetic retinopathy may include laser therapy, injections into the eye (anti-VEGF injections), or surgery in advanced cases. Early detection and management of diabetes are crucial in preventing vision complications.
