Hello, this is Jane Brown and thanks for joining me with this next article that I have written on “Steps to Managing Healthy Eyes as a Diabetic”. Frankly, whether you are a Diabetic or not, I believe having healthy eyes is very important and prevention is the key. I have been asked several times by people who have Diabetes or who are pre-Diabetic if there are prevention tips that I can provide and I wanted to share this information with you.
If you are a Diabetic, then your concern should be much greater. Vision problems can attack your body even quicker if you are a Diabetic. The problem is that the retina, surrounded by a lot of smaller nerves with the optic nerve in the middle, is located at the back of the eye. These nerves are feed by a large mass of blood vessels. If the blood vessels are damaged by rising blood sugar levels, the eye tries to help by randomly producing more blood vessels which is not good for your vision. Your vision may become blurred or worse.
These eye problems are not always apparent at first and can be aggravated with Diabetes complications. If you do not seek medical attention this vision problem can escalate and become much worse very fast.
Six steps to Healthy Eyesight:
- Regular and Consistent Exercise of at least 30 minutes per day and increase this as you get stronger.
- Developing a Nutritional Meal Plan – generous amounts of Vitamins A, D and E, lots of green leafy vegetables which contain lutein and zeaxanthin, Omega 3’s, zinc and copper. It will be more beneficial if you get these vitamins from foods but may have to consider some extra supplements. It is best to check with your dietitian or family doctor.
- Reducing your Body Fat and Losing Weight – it may be good for you to lose at least 5 to 10 percent of your current body weight.
- Reduces Stress (as much as possible) – look for alternatives to include calming, relaxing and meditating activities into your daily life. You will be amazed at how this will affect your overall well-being.
- Take your Medication – Your Doctor has recommended that you take your medication – listen. It is not OK to take your medication every other day. Take this medication on a regular and consistent basis.
- Schedule regular appointment with an Eye Doctor – Make sure to go to the eye doctor at least once a year and more often if your vision changes.
There may be a chance that you can prevent the onset of eye complications. It just makes sense that anyone and everyone should take note of their body and how it works. Prevention is the key to a healthier life.
