What do you know about Diabetic retinopathy?


Diabetic retinopathy:

A is reversible changes in the lens shape
B indicates long-standing uncontrolled diabetes
C presents with impaired drainage of the aqueous humour
D is an example of corneal injury
E is characterised by proteolytic enzymes affecting the lens


  1. The answer is B, and our winner for yesterday is Maryam.
    Diabetic retinopathy is a microvascular complication of diabetes. Optimal
    blood glucose control in diabetic patients reduces the long-term risks of
    microvascular damage. Long-standing uncontrolled diabetes leads to
    microvascular damage including damage to the retina. Diabetic retinopathy
    may cause permanent opacity of the vitreous humour and eventually blindness
    may result.
