    Related Self Assessment Question

    A 44-year-old man is seeing you for a routine diabetic check. He was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 2 years ago. He is worried because his grandmother went blind as a complication from her diabetes. Which of the following statements about diabetic retinopathy is true?

    A. The risk of retinopathy increases with increased hemoglobin A1C levels.
    B. It generally takes 10 to 20 years to see signs of retinopathy in a diabetic patient.
    C. A daily aspirin decreases the risk of retinopathy development.
    D. The first sign of retinopathy is usually the growth of new vessels on the retina.
    E. Retinopathy is an uncommon cause of visual loss in this day and age.

    EXPLANATION:


    Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. The risk increases with the length of time that the patient has had diabetes, and the condition worsens with increasing hemoglobin A1C levels. In type 2 diabetics, it can be seen at diagnosis. Aspirin has no effect on eye complications. It follows a predictable pattern, with mild background abnormalities followed by increased vascular permeability and hemorrhage. Proliferative changes occur late in the course.

    The answer is A.
