Abstract

Rapid improvement of glucose control in diabetics may cause a transient progression of ischemic retinopathy. We report a transient bilateral acute asymptomatic optic disc swelling associated with rapid improvement of metabolic control in a male Type I diabetic. It is d, suggested that the optic disc swelling could be caused n of by a rapid near-normal normalization of the blood glucose.
