Diabetic retinopathy is a serious condition that affects the eyes of some diabetics, and over time, high blood sugar levels can damage the blood vessels in the retina, which may lead to vision loss or blindness, according to what was published by ZEENEWS.

Proactive options

Beyond medical interventions, simple but profound changes in daily habits, from dietary choices and physical activity to reducing stress and tension, can significantly mitigate the risks of this debilitating condition.

Understand and implement 7 lifestyle modifications that strengthen the eyes, as well as promote overall diabetes control, with an emphasis on the empowering impact individuals have in preserving their vision through proactive choices.

There are many lifestyle changes that individuals can make to help prevent diabetic retinopathy or effectively reduce its risk, as follows:

1. Healthy blood sugar levels

Maintaining blood sugar levels within the target range is critical to preventing diabetic retinopathy. Regular monitoring and adherence to the diabetes treatment plan prescribed by your healthcare provider is essential.

2. Adopt a balanced diet

You should focus on a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. Excessive consumption of sugary and processed foods should be avoided, as they can lead to high blood sugar levels.

3. Exercise regularly

Engaging in regular physical activity, such as brisk walking, swimming or cycling, helps control blood sugar levels and promotes overall cardiovascular health, which is beneficial for eye health.

4. Control blood pressure and cholesterol

High blood pressure and cholesterol levels can worsen diabetic retinopathy. The instructions of the treating physician must be followed decisively and effectively to prevent deterioration of the condition.

5. Quit smoking

Smoking can worsen diabetic retinopathy by narrowing the blood vessels in the eye. Quitting smoking can significantly reduce the risk of vision complications.

6. Regular medical examination

Routine eye exams are essential for early detection and treatment of diabetic retinopathy. Following the recommended schedule and consulting an eye specialist who deals with diabetic eye conditions are simple steps that can lead to good results.

7. Reduce stress and prioritize sleep

Chronic stress, tension, and insufficient sleep can negatively impact blood sugar levels and overall health. Implementing stress reduction techniques and ensuring adequate rest ideally helps avoid diabetes complications.
