Question by 1234: How long does uncontrolled diabetes take to effect the eyes/cause blindness?
I know an African American male with diabetes and hypertension, mid 30’s, normal body weight, diagnosed with diabetes about 3 years ago. He became blind in one eye, the other eye is bleeding and retina tearing. I understand it varies for everyone- is this caused by not controlling the diabetes/hypertension? Im asking because the patient is claiming that they take great care of their sugar and blood pressure. My guess is my friend is not?

Best answer:

Answer by Andrea
After being diabetic for years it will just effect the eye. Even if the sugar is stable.
