Re: [IP] QUICK DROPS IN a1C



Sara you raise an interesting point.  Recent reports have demonstrated that if
your A1c is high and you have retinopathy and you lower the A1c quickly (with
or without a pump) the retinopathy can get worse for a period of time.  To
prevent this the retinopathy has to be treated by laser photocoagulation
before the A1c is lowered.  The long term results of lowering the A1c this way
are much better.  if any one wants the reference please let me know.
