Diabetic Retinopathy DiscussionNovember 18, 2016 2:43 pm
BBC Radio Cornwall featured an interesting discussion on diabetic retinopathy on yesterday’s Lawrence Reed Show. If you missed it you can listen to the first half of the discussion below.
Did you know that everyone aged 12 and over who is diagnosed with diabetes should get a retinal screening within three months of their diagnosis and that people with Type 1 diabetes are more at risk of developing diabetic retinopathy?
Listen to Lawrence Reed talk to Mr Ashish Patwardhan, Consultant ophthalmologist; Dr Duncan Browne, Consultant Endocronologist; and Helen from Newquay who developed diabetic retinopathy after being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
