Yes: the DCCT reported that improved control INITIALLY made retinopathy
worse, BUT that as time went on, it got better. That means that people
with established retinopathy should be watched more closely when they
first start pump therapy -- I don't really know how long that should go
on, but your optho should know (if he's worth the big bucks you're
paying him!!)

Good luck!
