When you are up for more than three hours after having your dinner, you sugar levels will start to dip. An apple or James Freeman Diabetes Freedom Review a whole grain muffin or a few peanut crackers with a cup of milk will be an ideal bed time snack.There are new treatments for the treatment of diabetic macular edema. The standard treatment using retinal laser treatment may become obsolete in the near future. New standards and technology utilizing intraocular injections and sustained release drug delivery will replace the old standard.

What is Diabetic Macular Edema? Diabetic macular edema is the most common "complication" of diabetic retinopathy. Since almost all patients with diabetes eventually get some degree of diabetic retinopathy in their lifetime, this is the most common manifestation of the disease.Diabetic macular edema occurs when the normal retinal blood vessels become leaky. The fluid component of blood leaks out of the retinal blood vessels into the surrounding tissue. If the leakage occurs in the macula, the condition is called macular edema, or, diabetic macular edema.

Symptoms of "DME" include slight blurring of the vision to significant vision loss, but never complete blindness. Patients can become legally blind from diabetic macular edema. It is fair to say that with more fluid accumulation, the worse the vision.Treatment of Macular Edema Traditionally, laser treatment for diabetic macular edema was performed in an attempt to reduce the amount of fluid accumulation, or, at least, prevent further swelling. Having said that, not all patients were great candidates for laser treatment, some responding better than others.Maintaining status quo, that is, preventing further vision loss has always been "success."
