It : It may have been one of the ingredients in the vitamin such as the filler or a food color. You may want to try to find out what type of vitamins they were so that you can avoid those ingredients in the future.

Heart problems: Heart problems are much more likely to cause feelings of dizziness than multivitamins -- unless you're allergic or intolerant to some of the fillers or other contents in the vitamins. Some companies include various herbs in their products, and you need to read labels to see what you're getting. Also research products you're considering using. Consumerlab.Com is a great resource for this.

20-40%: About 40% of type 1 diabetes patients with kidney disease will develop kidney failure within 20 years without strict blood pressure and glucose control. About 20% of type 2 diabetes patients with kidney disease will develop kidney failure within 20 years, but blood pressure control has seemed to be less effective in completely stopping progression in these patients.

Yes: Contacts can provide the optical correction part of the treatment especially at distance but may need to supplemented with reading glasses. Patching or cycloplegia of the stronger eye may still be required for lazy eye stimulation.
