Blurry vision after eating sweets?
It doesnt happen often but it lasts about half hour after I eat very sugary foods....Is this a sign of diabetes?

This is bad. You need to get to a doctor soon, you can blow out the tiny blood vessels in the back of your eyes and start going blind.

it sounds like you have diabetes and you should go to the doctor and check your blood sugar level.

You should definately have yourself tested for diabetes. Blurred vision is a symptom many diabetics experience during hyperglycemic episodes. The reason is very detailed, but in short it happens b/c the sugars accumulate, and can sometimes lead to blurred vision and even blindness due to neuropathic nerve damage.

yes!! please get tested for diabetis, blood sugar...hormone and thiroid

Violet Pearl
Not really. Blurred vision is a sign of hypoglycemia.

Ms. Denton Lone Star â„¢
Yes. Very much so.

Santa Barbara
Yo, diabetes man! I have it too.

Yes. When you are hyperglycemic (high blood sugar), the lens of your eye lens can actually swell due to the changes that high sugars have on osmotic properties in the body. This changes the refraction of light (the job of the lens) so that objects are clear.

could be. check your blood for sugar and insuline levels. also check your blood pressure and also check for glaucoma even though its asymptomatic.

I`d see your GP mum has this prob when her blood sugarrs are high

yes probably it is a D.M.releated to increase in sugar in blood with low insuline secreation from pancreas

Dorothy and Toto
Diabetes mellitus is impaired insulin secretion by the pancreas and variable degrees of peripheral insulin resistance leading to hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Early symptoms are related to hyperglycemia and include polydipsia (excessive thirst), polyphagia (excessive hunger and abnormally large intake of solids by mouth), and polyuria (excessive urination). Later complications include vascular disease, peripheral neuropathy, and predisposition to infection. Diagnosis is by measuring plasma glucose (blood sugar). Treatment is diet, exercise, and drugs that reduce glucose levels, including insulin and oral antihyperglycemic drugs. Prognosis varies with degree of glucose control.

Hyperglycemia is high blood glucose. Symptoms are--
Frequent urination
Excessive thirst
Extreme hunger
Unusual weight loss
Increased fatigue
Blurry vision

Hypoglycemia is low blood glucose. Symptoms are--
Sweating and palpitations
Pale skin
Hunger - to the extreme
Poor concentration
Feelings of faintness/dizziness
Loss of consciousness

Normal blood glucose ranges from 70-110. Anything below 70...hypo..anything above 110..hyper.
In the US, about 90% of diabetics are type II and 10% are type I.

Get checked out. Best of luck.

Could be a sign of diabetes,but it could be vertigo also.
My suggestion is : When in doubt,have a doctor check it out.We are all amateurs,you need a professional opinion.
