Ok I'm not that new to diabetes more new to taking it seriously after having to go on insulin. Now I've tried my own GP but have a condition (M.E.) that makes them dismiss any symptom I may present. (don't believe me look into some of the political wrangling round this issue)
Anyway when my bloods are in a normal range (UK measurement between 5-9) I start to lose the central section of my vision I can actually measure the level of my bloods by how much I can see at 9 there is a light blue haze annoying but manageable, by the time it gets to 5 I am totally blind the centre of my vision being replaced by what looks like a blue silhouette of a particularly frayed ball of wool.
I was referred by the hospitals diabetic clinic for a full diabetic eye exam who could find nothing unusual then back to my GP who just about washed his hands of the affair and diverts me any time I try to bring up the topic.
I've tried searching the web and read about blurred vision with high sugars and sudden drops in sugar but nothing about continual vision impairment when at normal sugar levels. It's leading to me keeping my sugars higher then they should be just so I can continue to read.
Sorry a little more rambling than intended.
