Re: [IP] Re: pain in the butt

Cataracts can be caused by repeated fluctuations in blood sugar causing changes in
the eyes.  They can also be caused by old age or by heredity.  There may a few
other causes -- I don't remember -- but the point is diabetics can have cataracts
b/c of diabetes or b/c of other causes.
