Could Retinal Bleeding Be Due To Hb A1c
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 ?
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
I made new glasses in october with -1, 75 dioptria.Now i don`t see well, got checked, it`s now -2, 75.My hba1c is 3, 26%.Could be coz of the low hba1c?Thx
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
Could the diabetology decreases the hba1c for a patient who is having high hba1c from years?(she doesn't eat sweets,white bread & her weight is good)
Hemoglobin A1C: This is a rough estimate of average blood sugar control over a three month period, more accurate than a single fasting blood glucose (sugar) level. In many tests, greater than 5.9 is considered abnormal, but you should discuss risk factors and prevention of diabetes with your doctor. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Glucose control: Hbga1c is a good measure of how well your glucose is controlled. In a diabetic it is an indicator of how well treatment is keeping glucose under control on average. It can also be used to detect diabetic or pre-diabetic patients in conjunction with glucose screening or tolerance tests. ...Read more
