    Hello, If you have diabetes mellitus, then it is very essential to get it appropriately treated, with drugs, diet control and exercise. Please understand diabetes is not simply rising blood sugar, it has very severe consequences on eye, kidney, small and large blood vessels, lower limbs and heart. So my suggestion is please initiate correct treatment as ensure that blood sugar levels are maintained as close  as possible to normal. Also get your eyes checked to rule out if there is any affection to retina.

    Apart from drugs it is important to take a restricted diet, exercise regularly and maintain near normal weight. All these thngs together  help in blood sugar control
