I would suggest you find out more of the relationship of what causes BG to rise (eating carbohydrates), self testing, drugs to lower BG and complications (retinopathy, neropathy...). Complications are NOT part of diabetes
, complications are from uncontrolled diabetes
. By uncontrolled I mean BG over 136, for when BG goes over 136 that is when damage to your eyes and nerves and blood vesals happens.
Complications are NOT inevitable.
