Dear Friend
Thanks for using forum of WWW.WWWW.WW

I feel useful tips are as follows:-
- Most important factor which governs Retinopathy is glucose control. Rosy part of the story is that sustained glucose control even reverses Retinopathy.
- Control of BP is and lipids is also important.
- Tobacco use in any form, if being done, needs to be stopped totally.

Kindly remain under the care of an Ophthalmologist continuously.

With best wishes
