[IP] Retinopathy

I had a "mild" (in the initiation stages) macular edema that was the
triggering point for me to decide to do something. That something was the
pump. Before the pump my A1C was 9.5 and higher in previous check-ups......a
year later (this past February) with my A1C being 5.7-5.3 and 4.9 throughout
the year, the ophthalmologist told me that the edema was gone. He was very
surprised though to see such fast results in just one year...my point is it
can be done,,,and the sooner the better...
good luck
