Integrated Treatment for Diabetic Retinopathy

Bethaniya Clinic has been offering integrated treatment options for different medical conditions. Pursuing an integrated approach, we have been able to manage chronic ailments quite effectively. We have been fortunate to extend our treatment to patients from India and abroad. . Integrated treatment for diabetic retinopathy aims to provide relief to those patients who fed up with conventional treatment methods.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy is a complication caused by a prolonged and uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus. It is one of the most common causes of visual impairment in adults with diabetes and hyperglycemia. At the same time, it has been an intricate issue to determine the effect of diabetes on the transparent retina.

Doctors suggest an HbA1C test for confirming the blood sugar level variation in a patient. Although it cannot state the exact condition of glycaemic control, the sudden variation in blood sugar can be indicative of possible diabetic retinopathy.

Bethaniya uses a proven integrated treatment for diabetic retinopathy. The panel of specialist doctors at our clinic would suggest all the medical examinations for affirming the degree of diabetic retinopathy and for ascertaining the patient’s medical condition. The treatment program for Diabetic retinopathy would be finalized post this detailed examination process only.

Causes of Diabetic Retinopathy


Apparently, the high diabetic condition causes diabetic retinopathy. Doctors suggest an HbA1C test for patients suffering from diabetes for a long period. Just to rule out the possibility of this medical problem.

The increased blood sugar condition can create blocks in the small blood vessels inside the retina. The blood circulation in these vessels is disrupted due to the blockage. The body attempts to overcome this issue by growing new blood vessels. At the same time, the growth of new blood vessels is also impeded by the lack of blood supply.

Two types of diabetic retinopathy are observed, viz. Non-proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy (NPDR) and Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy (PDR).

· Non-proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy – In NPDR, the growth or development of new blood vessels in the retina is not happening. The walls of the blood vessels inside the retina weaken as an effect of NPDR, leading to tiny bulges. Fluid/ blood leakage to the retina may also occur due to this medical condition.

· Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy (DPR) – This is a severe medical condition of diabetic retinopathy. The blood vessels inside the retina are completely blocked due to DPR and new abnormal blood vessels grow consequently. These can interfere with the normal blood flow inside the retina. Leading to pressure in the blood vessels, damage to the optic nerve and similar dangerous consequences.

Symptoms of Diabetic Retinopathy

The common symptoms of diabetic retinopathy are:

  • Blurred vision
  • Dark areas in the vision
  • Empty areas in the vision
  • Spots or dark strings that float in front of your eyes
  • Fluctuating vision
  • Loss of vision

How to Prevent Diabetic Retinopathy

A regular medical examination, control over diabetes mellitus, and early identification of vision issues can help prevent diabetic retinopathy. However, 100% prevention may not be possible. You may reach out to us if you suspect the medical problem and are looking for effective integrated treatment for diabetic retinopathy.

 The methods you can consider adapting for preventing diabetic retinopathy are:

  • People with high blood sugar levels are at a risk for diabetic retinopathy. They should keep their diabetic levels under control by consuming a healthy diet, doing exercises as suggested, and checking their blood sugar levels constantly. Do not stop medications for diabetes if you are taking those.
  • HbA1C test is the technique for confirming the blood sugar variation for the previous 2-3 months. Normally, the diabetic specialist will suggest the test. The aim is to keep the HbA1C reading below 7%.
  • Quit smoking at the earliest, especially if you are a diabetic patient. It can lead to diabetic retinopathy and other complications in diabetic patients.
  • High blood pressure and high cholesterol are the main villains that cause different medical issues. They are problematic here as well. Get the BP and cholesterol under control if you want to reduce the possibility of diabetic retinopathy. Consult the specialists at Bethaniya Clinic if you are looking for effective medications for blood pressure and cholesterol.
  • If you observe any sudden issue with vision, consult a specialist right away. Avoid procrastinating on the visit to the doctor.
