PRO -TIP The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) showed that strict control of blood sugar with insulin (In type 1 diabetes) decreases the progression of diabetic retinopathy, as well as nephropathy and neuropathy.
-So the better a diabetic’s blood sugar is controlled, whether that is with diet, exercise, and/or medication, the less chance of developing diabetic eye disease and other systemic complications.
