When I was diagnosed with diabetes 10 years ago I had a blood sugar level of 534 mg/dL. I had lost 25lb and was drinking water and heading to the bathroom constantly. Being an adult I didn’t even suspect diabetes…nobody in my family or relatives has type 1 diabetes. It was quite a shock to learn that I was going to give injections to myself for the rest of my life.
As soon as I started on insulin, one thing pleasantly surprised me and, temporarily at least, I thought that there was at least one upside to the disease. I had been wearing glasses to correct my myopia since my teenage years and one day - about a month after beginning my insulin shots - I discovered that I had 20/20 or better vision in both eyes!! I was ecstatic! But the doctor didn’t have a clue about how that happened.
But I rejoiced too soon because a couple of months later I was back to wearing my glasses. To this day I have not seen any explanation for my brief 20/20 eyesight.
Does anybody else have such experiences?
