Hey, i am not a doctor, but I have played one on stage, and I would have to
say that for ME, and apparently for YOU, if you see "huge blinding white
spots," 60 is TOOOOOO LOW!!!! The longer you maintain these super tight
the more impressed I am, but the more sensation of hypo you may lose (YMMV),
it is a short little trip from 60 to 50 which is low by NORMAL standards...I
sure wouldn't want you driving down my street with huge blinding white spots,
even though you are in your so-called "target range."..If you are seeing huge
blinding white spots at 60 (also known as flashers and they are a SYMPTOM of
proliferative and background retinopathy), then I would probably RAISE my
target level. Lots of lows may result in a lower A1c, but you can achieve the
same thing in a more healthy, less debilitating way
If it was ME, I would also question the doctor...if you have blood vessels in
your eye that are bleeding when you bend over, then I'd have to assume you
have neovascularization and I don't know when "mere new blood vessels that leak
blood into your eye" becomes "proliferative retinopathy" but I sure as hell
would want to put a HALT to them NOW before it gets worse and I needed a
vitrectomy....of course, that is just ME, having HAD two vitrectomies which
pretty much direct result of way too tight control way too fast when i went on
the pump....not saying I had good control before the pump and I probably would
have gotten retinopathy anyway, just the facts are the facts...
good luck!! I am sure you will get it all straightened out soon....
