The longer you have diabetes, the greater the likelihood you are going to develop damage. Because the early stages of the disease dont have symptoms, most patients dont know there is a problem until vision is affected.

Annas hummingbird has been increasing its winter range northward up the Pacific Coast and seems to be more prevalent in areas where there are people, she said. But are they increasing their range because of feeders? Or are people putting out feeders because theyre seeing more hummingbirds? The Coopers hawk, an accipiter that preys frequently on small and medium-sized birds, has been increasing in numbers and more are wintering farther north.

The Mouse Model Allows Sharma To Test The Compound In Both Late And Early Stages Of The Disease To See If It She Can Prevent Diabetic Retinopathy From Happening, She Said.

Sharma is looking at an experimental drug that in her early work seems to have blocked that type of action in those cells, using it both in the lab in human cells in the same kind of environment that is there in the eye and in a mouse model of diabetes. The hope is to prevent the barrier disruption to the cells that can cause them to become leaky and create inflammation, an early hallmark of the disease. The mouse model allows Sharma to test the compound in both late and early stages of the disease to see if it she can prevent diabetic retinopathy from happening, she said. Separately, the compound is being tested in human clinical trials in rheumatoid arthritis, which is also promising, Sharma said. Im more excited because I am re-purposing this drug, she said. I am not trying to develop a new drug. But that potential is why Augusta University has translational programs to try and bring those promising research ideas to the clinic, said Nussbaum , chair of the Department of Ophthalmology.

Also, vegetarians and vegans may tend to lead healthy lifestyles, avoiding cataract risk boosters such as smoking, excess sun exposure and diabetes. But as we age, some of the protein may clump together and start to cloud a small area of the lens.
