Lantus Visual Impairment Causes and Reviews


If you have low vision, eyeglasses, contact lenses, medicine, or surgery may not help. Activities like reading, shopping, cooking, writing, and watching TV may be hard to do. The leading causes of low vision and blindness in the United States are age-related eye diseases: macular degeneration, cataract and glaucoma. Other eye disorders, eye injuries, and birth defects can also cause vision loss.

Whatever the cause, lost vision cannot be restored. It can, however, be managed. A loss of vision means that you may have to reorganize your life and learn new ways of doing things. If you have some vision, visual aids such as special glasses and large print books can make life easier. There are also devices to help those with no vision, like text-reading software and braille books.

The sooner vision loss or eye disease is found and treated, the greater your chances of keeping your remaining vision. You should have regular comprehensive eye exams by an eye care professional.

Lantus Visual Impairment Reviews

Tue, 09 Feb 2010

Lantus is nt working for me atall, sometimes it will be extremely potent leading to a horrible kind of feeling of blood sugar levels being pushed down. other times it will work the other way and be useless and ineffective. I'm currently trying to get on an insulin pump. I have found out that Lantus is a different ph to the rest of the boy which is clearly going to have some side effects! that is unbelivably obvious! yet why is it still being pushed onto patients. I'm not saying levemir is any better, the best alternative sounds to me like the way insulin pumps send small pulses of rapid acting insulin into the blood every 5 minuets, mimicking the way a normal pancreas would work and making it easier to adjust when things go wrng as opposed to being "stuck" with a certain amount of insulin in your body the moment you inject it.
