Minimal + mild diabetic retinopathy in past 5 years, both resolved
Type 1 diabetes for 22 years, on insulin, well-controlled (average HbA1c 40-42mmol/mol (6%))
-3.00 in both eyes, myopic
With background history above, I just had a diabetic retinopathy photoscreening today and was told I have new microaneurysms BE and also possible maculopathy by the technician. Also had an OCT done today too. My BSL had been fluctuating a little recently & I've probably seen 1 new floater over past month but my VA is normal. Lastest HbA1c 4 weeks ago was 42mmol/mol (6%).
I've had mild NPDR twice in the past 5 years, both resolved completely and my HbA1cs have been stable around 6%.
Hence just wondering if I could get an interpretation from you regarding my retina photos today? OCT results also attached. Also wondering what would be the best step to take new? Do I need to possibly see anyone urgently?
Thank you very much your comments! Apologies the OCTs didn't get through, I've attached these again with also my black/white retinal photos, would appreciate your advise on the OCTs!
Much appreciate all your help!
Thanks for your Question
From the images that you attached i can't see any microaneurysms. Microaneurysms appear as small red spots which you have none in these pics.
You didn't attach any OCT images. I would prefer if you could attach them.
So far there is nothing urgent and there is nothing to worry about.
