Virginia in Culpeper and King George, VA

Ask our optometry specialist Dr. Miles Press at Eye Care of Virginia if this supplement is a good option to protect your eyesight.
Optometry in Diabetes Care
Though most people with diabetes don't think about vision care, they should. Diabetic retinopathy occurs within five years of a diabetes diagnosis in 38 percent of patients. It’s also the leading cause of blindness in people under 74. You may not even realize you have this condition until it's progressed to a severe state.
Early symptoms could include blurry vision, dark spots in your vision and a loss of central vision. Get to an eye specialist immediately if you notice any of these warning signs. As the condition progresses, it increases the harm to your vision.
With uncontrolled blood sugar levels, damage occurs to the blood vessels in the eye. This forces the eye to create new blood vessels, but there's only so much space available. More blood vessels increase pressure in the eye and eventually the retina detaches, potentially leading to blindness.
Only an optometry doctor, like Dr. Miles Press at Eye Care of Virginia, can diagnose diabetic retinopathy. Usually, this occurs during an eye exam wherein the doctor examines the blood vessels in your eyes. If you show signs of vision problems from diabetic retinopathy or have diabetes, he may recommend you supplement your diet.
How Nuretin Helps
Nuretin is different from other medications you've taken for diabetes. This is a medical food supplement. It's a proprietary DHA and EPA supplement that is formulated especially for diabetic patients. Studies have shown this supplement decreases the chance of developing diabetic retinopathy by 50 percent.
You can't get the same effect from an over-the-counter supplement. Absorbing the active ingredient, DHA, is difficult for up to three-fourths of diabetics. Since the body does not make DHA, you need to supplement your diet with it. This supplement has a special blend of DHA and EPA in a 5:1 ratio in a form that diabetics can better absorb. Getting these fatty acids into your body could protect your retinas, which have some of the highest concentrations of DHA in your body.
