Au Canada, environ 2,4 millions de personnes souffrent du diabète et sont susceptibles de développer une rétinopathie diabétique. Cette atteinte…de la rétine causée par le diabète toucherait 99 % des diabétiques de type 1 et 60 % des diabétiques de type 2 diagnostiqués depuis 20 ans.

Ce livre permet de mieux comprendre les signes qui caractérisent la rétinopathie diabétique et les symptômes qui en résultent. Il aborde les principaux facteurs de risque et les moyens de prévention, et explique en détail comment on établit le diagnostic, quels sont les traitements proposés et comment mieux vivre avec la maladie au quotidien.
