I was diagnosed about two years ago to be pre-diabetic. I live overseas and moved to another region of Brazil soon after the diagnose. Does anyone know anything about metformin and pre-diabetes?

Hello LORA,
I'm so sorry to hear that. I had my exam yesterday and I told the doctor about the stabbing feeling going thru my pupil. He told me to be careful, b/c it could be a sign of a stroke. Also said to take it easy too. I have stigmatism in my left eyes.

Stigmatism- the condition of an optical system in which rays of light from a single point.... He said a lot of diabetics can get this and to notify your doctor the next time it happens... So be careful....
Always, ERNA

I just joined spark today. I have type 2 diabetes and just found out 5 yrs. ago. In the past yr. at my eye exams some small things happened. One was tiny little capillaries burst in left eye. At my eye exam last mo. he said it was gone. PTL...but he said he saw in one of my eyes a slight cataract. I am scared. I don't want to be blind. My AICs are good. Sugar levels being controlled with meds. Am scared of eyes though. Help~
