Yes, at least once a year. Plus, educate yourself about warning signs to vision issues and go see your eye doctor as soon as possible if you see floaters or other changes in your vision. Use the amsler grid, which helps detect possible retina or optic nerve damage; both common issues noted with diabetes.I go every 4 weeks now due to diabetic retinopathy. I get eye shots regularly, along with laser surgery, An annual eye exam is not sufficient. 2 per year is a start. Quarterly would be a lot safer. I have been through 9 years of hell because my (former) eye doctor did not complete his exam properly and I was in an emergency situation 3 months later. Remember, YOU are the Boss when you go into a doctor’s office. YOU were the one who hired them to advise you on your health care, I would advise everyone to have regular checks. I was stupid and because my vision was fine I never bothered with eye tests. In my early 50’s my eyesight was not as good so I went for an eye test and found out I had retinopathy. I had over a year of laser treatment and still had two bleeds in the same eye. I had a vitrectomy but also have macular degeneration in both eyes and have lost count of the number of Lucent is injections I have had, which are still ongoing. I am lucky that I still have some sight but I cannot read very well even with powerful magnifying glasses.
twice a year, but I have a question and hope someone can help,, I am having difficulty paying for my supplies. Recently an error was made concerning my medical coverage and I couldn’t get my supplies. I ended up in the hospital with readings 600 plus. Yes, very stupid of me but I had nowhere to turn to get supplies. Any suggestions, Notify your Dr. tell them what is happening with your ins. co. I am sure they will give you samples un til you get your ins. straightened out. Also you can call the manufacturer that you get your meds from tell them what has happened they can ship meds to your Dr. in the meantime providing they are willing to help you. I did this when I lost coverage a while back, got samples from endo and also the manufacturer. There may be paperwork to fill out by your Dr. but it is worth it. Better than not having meds at all. Good luck.
Hi Brenda , at the time then I ran out of my supplies I was changing insurance companies and actually had an insurance rep fill out all the paperwork with me. That was in December by January they had canceled my medication part of my insurance without me knowing it until I went to pick up supplies 1 February. I was begging anyone anybody for some supplies in order to take my readings and you my insulin shots no one was listening. I’m too proud to get on my hands and knees and crawl into a doctors office begging for supplies. But what happened shortly afterwards was my asthma and I started with asthma problems which affects my thinking process. Oxygen deprived brain. The gremlins were after me. I wasn’t eating properly I was only drinking sugary drinks not good for a diabetic it was three weeks of this I had no idea what my readings were and I hardly left the house. I finally drag myself to my primary doctor and he immediately sent me to ER as my readings were over 600 and my breathing wasn’t much better because of my asthma but my point is I wasn’t able to get any free supplies from anyone, my doctor has referred me to a diabetic specialist and they aren’t accepting new patients-7 yes the gremlins are still after me
