Patient’s Role in Management

What You Can Do

There are steps that you can take to prevent or delay vision loss, and manage your condition and treatment:

Regular Screening: Get a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once a year. If you have diabetic retinopathy, you may need to have eye exams more often.

Control Blood Glucose: Keep your blood glucose levels as close to normal as you can. Hyperglycemia initiates many other risk factors, so controlling blood glucose can prevent other diabetic complications and slows down or even prevents the development of retinopathy.

Control Blood Pressure: Studies have demonstrated that keeping your blood pressure as close to normal as possible reduces the risk of complications in the microvascular system by roughly 33%.

Control Blood Lipids: Keeping your cholesterol levels as close to normal as possible reduces the risk of complications. High levels of total cholesterol or triglycerides can increase the risk of developing DME by two- or three-fold.
