Duel Disease Management: Dealing With Diabetes & Keratoconus

Almost 1 in 3 Americans are believed to have Diabetes or are related to someone with Diabetes. These numbers intend to increase over the next decade. But when you add a condition like Keratoconus to Diabetes the risk of severe loss of sight is much greater. Having one condition can cause damage but having both needs to be monitored frequently.

In addition to being monitored, which doctor you choose to take care of your eyes is another important part of your treatment. Making sure the doctor specializes in Keratoconus and knows all the available treatment options out to make your treatment most effective.

When having more than one chronic condition it is important to have proper treatment management. Checking with your doctor regularly about what treatment options are best, and what tests need to be done is important. Visiting your eye doctor every 6 months can help prevent further damage and catch things early.
