FROM OUR EXPERTS
Hi there, I've been suffering headaches the last month or so (not bad, just really annoying!) mostly in my left temple and at the back of my head just above my neck. The vision in my left eye is now going all blurry and I still have a slight headache. I've never had my eyes checked, do you think this may be the case? Thanks :) Kayla.
Unexplained headaches should always be investigated - always. To be on the safe side, start by calling your doctor. Then, yes, you should have your eyes checked. Everyone should have their eyes checked periodically.
The reason to start with your doctor is to be sure your symptoms aren't being caused by anything serious that might need immediate treatment. Please don't wait. Call your doctor's office now.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

For the last six months I have tried my best to be the perfect type 2 diabetic. I have dieted. I have watched my carb intake. I have exercised. I have not touched a french fry, doughnut or basket of tortilla chips since October. No non-diet drink has crossed my lips. I have lost over forty pounds, dropped my A1c from 9.6 to 5.9 and reduced my waist size by almost six inches. I am off all medication, my doctor loves me, my family is impressed, and I am about sick of it all. I want a day off from the new healthy me. I want to come home, lay on my couch and watch a movie. With a can of Pringles. And a beer. Maybe some pizza for a late dinner followed by ice cream for dessert. I am tired of being just a little bit hungry half the day. I am tired of sore muscles and hours in the gym. I want pancakes with real maple syrup, waffles, french toast, powdered doughnuts, croissants with almond paste. I do not want to see a broccoli floret, a piece of spinach or anything else green...
