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

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.

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

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
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
