I wondered if immediate increased control contributed to existing
retinopathy. I guess a few studies validate the fact even though my Dr
denys it. But congrats on the weight loss, but I know that the thought
of losing your sight can be scarry. My retinopathy has stabilized, I
think. I am waiting the 30 days to get onto John's insurance to find out
and do anything like laser. I am taking getting under better control
very slowwly...Thanksgiving and Christmas helped.
How long have you been on the pump?
