When we talk about the complications of diabetes we frequently talk about kidney failure and amputation, but more often than not the first changes that a patient notices are in their vision. Whether it is difficulty reading because of elevated glucose or the first signs of retinopathy, eye changes can cause a patient a lot of stress and anxiety. This week our Clinical Text focuses (no pun intended) on treating eye problems.
Our Disaster Averted looks down a little lower on the face and points out why it is so important that our patients visit the dentist, while Dr. Joe Houmard helps us figure out what the best aerobic exercise is for each individual patient. Also, check out our Homerun Slides for a fresh updated look at type 1 diabetes treatment options.
