Default Strange symptoms when having a hypo

I have been on Insulin for a year now, and I know when I am starting to a get a low blood sugar (hypo) as I feel like my heart is beating very loud, but the strangest symptoms is with my sight - I seem to get black floaty shapes and everything seems to get darker and misty looking - has anybody else had that with their eye sight?? Interested to know as I have never seen this appear in any symptoms of having a hypo.

Changes in eyesight are common with low blood glucose. If you feel them coming on check your blood glucose.

Thanks for that LuYoung I thought that changes in eyesight meant that you got double vision or something. This is the weirdest thing tho - it's just as if I were in a room with a very dim light on, only just started getting this symptom.

Any changes in eye sight are a worry. Did you know that diabetes is the leading cause of preventable blindness?

If you experience changes in eye sight see your doctor.
