Eye stye and its connection to Diabetes, this is very alarming and new information that I have uncovered while doing more online research of why some people are more acceptable to this eye condition. When I say new information, not meaning new to the medical field, just something I didn’t know, thus learning now.
The common eye stye has become even more of a suspicious problem, that may be a tell tail sign of unknown underlying health problems. This is something to keep in mind especially for the folks who develop this eye condition more in a recurring pattern then what could be considered normal.
Does this mean having a stye, the onset of Diabetes is next? Absolutely not, nor am I trying to cause a scare, but I believe this is health information to beware of and I feel it is important to make my readers aware of the possibility.
What I have learned about this, is folks with diabetes tend to be more susceptible to bacterial infection. With these infections eye styes are common, including pink eye. Why is this? Those with Diabetes have an autoimmune system problems. The lowering of the bodies resistance to infections is the reasoning behind sicknesses, thus styes can be problematic.
Diabetes can be a complicated subject, I won’t even attempt to write about it, as my knowledge is nothing more then knowing it has to do with blood sugar levels. The most I will comfortably say on this matter is, keep blood sugar levels low, low as possible and practice above good hygiene. This will included frequent washing of the eyelids and hands, while limiting the touching, rubbing, picking at the eyes.
My concerns of why I feel the need to pass this information along, is all the comments this blog has received. So many people have stated of recurring styes or styes that have not gone away or healed in a proper amount of time. I just became concerned for the well being of those that seek help. It bothers me to hear of some going weeks and their stye hasn’t healed. Granted is every lump like feature on, around the eye really a stye? It is so hard at times to provide the help, just by way of description of ones condition via comments……but, I try to do my best.
My point I’m trying to get across is sometimes the “Common Stye” just might not be something more……Please use your very best judgement, never ignore odd symptoms, don’t second guess…..visit your Doctor!
