Could retinal bleeding be due to hba1c?

Could retinal bleeding be due to hba1c?

Yes: High hba1c (generally greater than 7.0) is an indicator of poorly controlled diabetes mellitus. When the blood sugar is elevated for an extended period of time, particularly if coupled with high blood pressure, it damages blood vessels throughout the body. In the eye this blood vessel damage can lead to bleeding in the retina or the vitreous cavity. ...Read more

Has anyone experienced bleeding behind retina or detached retina?

Has anyone experienced bleeding behind retina or detached retina?

Many: These are conditions in which the retina, the visual film at the back of the eye, becomes loosened from its moorings which disturbs the vision and can cause permanent loss of not fixed. Bleeding can also lift off the retina but more commonly causes a blockage of vision by covering up the front of the retina. See your retinal ophthalmologist for diagnosis and treatment which is possible. ...Read more

I'm one week post op vitrectomy.At the f/u the doctor said I had a re bleed. Is this normal and will this bleed go away. No retinal det.

Not uncommon: This would not be an uncommon occurrence, especially while a person is taking Aspirin and ibuprofen. Usually these small bleeds will clear without complication. Any extreme symptoms should be reported back to the surgeon, such as pain, loss of vision, substantial increase in floaters. ...Read more

I had a retina tear that has been sealed with laser. But since, i bleed in the eye once about every month. Should i get vitreous removal operation ?

I had a retina tear that has been sealed with laser. But since, i bleed in the eye once about every month. Should i get vitreous removal operation ?

A possible issue: In some patients, the vitreous gel creates a retinal tear next to or right through a retinal blood vessel. Even if the tear is sealed well with laser, the gel still remains attached to the flap of the tear and the blood vessel. In some cases, persistent traction creates periodic hemorrhage. While this often decreases with time, surgery may be warranted if recurrent, severe, ; impacting daily life. ...Read more

My glucose level is 73 but my hba1c is 7.8 am i diabetic? And what is the fastest way to decrease hba1c due to work requirement. Any food suggestions?

My glucose level is 73 but my hba1c is 7.8 am i diabetic? And what is the fastest way to decrease hba1c due to work requirement. Any food suggestions?

Yes: Hemoglobin a1c is a good measure of diabetes status. A normal reading is around 5. A reading of 7.8 is very abnormal. The good news is you can change that by what you eat - go low carb (search low carb diets on the internet). That number will change slowly though because a1c is a 3 month average of blood sugar levels. ...Read more

Could high hba1c be uncontrolled?&today I took the lunch directly after the snack,is it ok?

HbA1c =glucose bound: to the giant hemoglobin molecules inside red blood cells. HbA1c a reflection of the average glucose concentration in the water outside cells over the previous 2-3 months; negligible change by any meal within previous hours/few days. "OK" implies permission, a non-relevant concept. Only choices & outcomes exist. Other issues=only in the minds of viewers; commonly with little relation to outcomes. ...Read more

No: Being skinny, or low hb a1c does not explain your refractive errors in the eye. It would be prudent for you to exercise and eat some protein rich foods like beans, lentils, legumes, nuts and lean meats. ...Read more

Could you have diabetes if your fasting glucose level and hba1c levers are normal?

Could you have diabetes if your fasting glucose level and hba1c levers are normal?

Unlikely: If both HbA1c and fasting glucose are normal you are most likely fine. Occasionally people are having much higher sugars AFTER they eat (measured 2 hours) and are diabetic without knowing it. This would have been reflected in the A1c though which is why I think you're probably fine! ...Read more

Do I have to fast for a hba1c blood test?

Do I have to fast for a hba1c blood test?

Not really: The aic test generally tells us what has been going on with your sugar over the past 3 months approximately. One does not really have to fast for it, but it is best done fasting in my opinion, because your doctor will probably want to see a fasting blood sugar at the same time to help manage your diabetes. Often a lipid panel is done at the same time, which requires one to be fasting. ...Read more

Hba1c of 5.7, am I prediabetic, what to do?

Prediabetic diet.: The diet for prediabetes includes fiber (35 grams daily for females, 50 grams for men). Smaller more frequent meals is the rule as well. Eat five or six times daily, dividing the fiber amongst the meals evenly. Low fat, low cholesterol, rich in fruits and vegetables and lean protein sources. Supplementing cinnamon and chromium could help control the bloody sugars, too. And exercise, too. ...Read more
