The Link Between Blood Sugar and Eye Health

Diabetes and Blood Sugar Control


When you have diabetes, maintaining stable blood sugar levels within a healthy range is crucial. Chronically high or low levels, as well as fluctuations can impact various organs, including your eyes.

Diabetes management involves understanding how different factors affect blood sugar levels. Food, medication, and lifestyle choices all play a role.


Risks of Rapid Blood Sugar Reduction


While controlling blood sugar is essential, rapid reductions can be risky. Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) occurs when levels drop too much. Symptoms include rapid heartbeat, sweating, dizziness, and confusion.

Hypoglycemia can harm blood vessels in the eyes, leading to eye diseases.


Eye Diseases Associated with Diabetes


  • Diabetic Retinopathy: Both high and low blood sugar levels damage blood vessels in the retina. Over time, this can cause vision loss.
  • Cataracts: People with diabetes are at higher risk of developing cataracts, which cloud the eye’s lens.
  • Glaucoma: Diabetes increases the risk of glaucoma, a condition that damages the optic nerve.


Why Rapid Reduction Matters


Sudden blood sugar drops strain blood vessels, including those in the eyes. Hypoglycemia-induced stress on retinal vessels contributes to diabetic retinopathy. Uncontrolled blood sugar fluctuations worsen eye health.


If rapid blood sugar reduction is unavoidable due to the drugs you are prescribed, consider treatment to prevent or stabilise eye disease. Noctura 400 is ideal, as it can be used alongside whatever other treatments you have been prescribed.


Preventing Eye Disease


  • Steady Blood Sugar: Aim for stable blood sugar levels. Avoid drastic reductions.
  • Regular Eye Exams: Detect issues early. Annual eye check-ups are crucial.
  • Prevent eye disease: Use Noctura 400 to prevent worsening of eye disease.
  • Healthy Lifestyle: Balanced meals, exercise, and proper medication adherence matter.
  • Consult Professionals: Work closely with your healthcare team.


Remember, managing diabetes isn’t just about numbers; it’s about safeguarding your overall health, including your precious eyesight.
