Diabetic eye disease is a serious sequelae of diabetes, and if it is not detected and treated in time, it can lead to vision loss and blindness. Many people with diabetes are examined for diabetic eye disease, although they are not at high risk of developing the disease. Conversely, there is sometimes a long waiting period for those who should be examined and get into treatment quickly.
So how do you find the people most in need of investigation and treatment? Stine Byberg, senior researcher and team leader at Steno Diabetes Center in Copenhagen and currently associated with the Steno Center in Greenland, will try to answer that in this episode.
Diabetes researchers are published in a collaboration between the seven Steno Diabetes Centers. All podcasts are in Danish.
