Question of Week | Black Spots in Eyes

JR was recently diagnosed with type two diabetes. JR‘s A1 C was 13.9%, but now blood sugars are running in the 100 to 180 range. JR mentions that they have been noticing “black spots” floating in their eyes.

What is the best response by the diabetes specialist?

  1. This is an expected finding when blood sugars drop rapidly.
  2. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much are these spots affecting your daily quality of life?
  3. That must be really scary. Make sure to mention this at your next provider visit.
  4. Let’s get you scheduled in to see ophthalmology.
