T1D, ocular hypertension and acid reflux


(sneathbupp) #1

I feel like everything happens at once. Diagnosed with T1D in November, acid reflux in February and yesterday I started eye drops for ocular hypertension. I don’t have glaucoma but the eye doc felt my extreme nearsightedness put the risk high enough to start treatment even though the eye pressure is borderline to moderately high. I have gone from no meds to 4 daily meds. Feels like a bummer though I am happy nothing really bad is going on. When diagnosed with T1D they were afraid I had pancreatic cancer - so it could have been much worse. I just hate being dependent on pharmaceuticals.
