Hello, Hellen,


I don't know of any research on this topic, so the best person to ask aobut this is your ophthalmologist and the doctor who treats you for diabetes.


One thing I can tell you is that intraocular pressure often rises during a Migraine attack, but I really don't know what impact that might have on diabetic eye complications.


Sorry I don't have more information for you. Please let me know what you find out?
