From North Carolina, USA:

Our 9 year old, with Type 1 diabetes, has been complaining of vision problems (blurry) the past 2 days. I will call first thing Monday AM to her eye doctor. Her blood sugars have been mostly normal but has had several episodes of lows. Can the lows be causing blurriness? We've already made an insulin adjustment to stop the lows but are still concerned.


Children may complain of blurred vision when their blood sugar is low, but it usually becomes clear when the blood sugar is normal. If your child is still having blurred vision, you should see the eye doctor as you mentioned. It is also possible your child needs glasses unrelated to diabetes.
