Audience

This article is for glaucoma diabetes patients who want to find solutions to improve both diseases. Both conditions have the same root causes.

  • Best start: discover your true root causes for both diseases with our proprietary analysis. You'll get a free, personal, custom plan to improve glaucoma and diabetes naturally in your circumstances, click here
  • If you just want generic information about glaucoma and diabetes in general, read this article.

Glaucoma and diabetes are joined at the hip. Very few diseases have a closer relationship than these two. But why is that?

And why is it that glaucoma and diabetes increased dramatically over the past 30 years? What happened in society to make this happen? The insulin problem of diabetes gives it away.

Insulin is a hormone. So both diseases come down to hormonal imbalances. Yet, there is more to it than meets the eye.

The thing is that eye drops, medication, and glaucoma surgery can't fix the problem. These can relieve some eye pressure, but won't remove the root causes. So you must understand hormonal health to beat both, glaucoma and diabetes.

Can Diabetes Cause Glaucoma?

Yes. Glaucoma is eye disease that affects people with diabetes. Research directly links a type of glaucoma to diabetes. That's neovascular glaucoma. It's rare. But there is a direct correlation.

Glaucoma has a lot to do with hormones. Hormonal imbalances are the cause of glaucoma. Diabetes is ultimately a problem of hormones.

Research also indicates a link between open-angle glaucoma and both types of diabetes. That's a very common type of glaucoma. So that doesn't mean you have diabetes when you have open-angle glaucoma. But if you have diabetes, you have to monitor your eyesight regularly.

So when you get diabetes, it's time to prevent glaucoma. It's time to fix the hormone imbalance.

How Does Diabetes Cause Glaucoma?

That's not clear at this stage. Research shows that glaucoma has to do with hormonal imbalances. Too much of some hormones causes the drain channels in the eyes to block. That's why the fluids can't flow out.

Diabetes is a hormone problem as well. The body can't produce the hormone insulin anymore. Glaucoma is mainly about growth hormones. They seem to play havoc with the eyes.

The liver secretes both hormones, insulin and growth hormones. That's where the link may come from.

Fact is that diabetes affects your hormonal balance. If one hormone is out of whack, others are too. Science just begins to research hormones properly.

Since too much growth hormone can increase the risk of diabetes and the risk of glaucoma, that seems to be the culprit. So it may be that diabetes doesn't cause glaucoma. But that diabetics are high in growth hormones. So the excess growth hormones cause glaucoma as well.

Either way, you are well advised to remove dairy products. Or if you can't live without them (that's a bad sign!), switch to organic versions. Also, make sure you steer away from processed foods. These tend to throw the hormonal balance out of whack.

Diabetes Causes Glaucoma

Is Diabetes Caused by Glaucoma?

No! People with diabetes are at risk to get glaucoma. But not everyone with glaucoma gets diabetes. The connection is different.

Both diabetes and glaucoma, have to do with hormones. In both diseases, the growth hormone levels run high. So that's the part to look at.

Lack of insulin production or insulin resistance causes diabetes. Too much growth hormone seems to play into that. Excess growth hormone also blocks the drainage channels in the eyes. That blockage then causes glaucoma.

So, your hormonal balance is what you need to look at. That's where the root causes for both diseases seem to lie.

Why Does Diabetes Cause Glaucoma?

Again, the connect appears to be in the hormonal balance. Excess growth hormone plays into both diseases. The surplus level of growth hormones block the channels in the eye.

Yes, there are other types of glaucoma. But these are usually due to injury or accidents. For the slow developing types, hormonal imbalances appear to play a significant role.

So it's not that diabetes causes glaucoma. It's more that the hormonal imbalance that causes diabetes also causes glaucoma. It blocks the fluid ducts that allow fluid to flow out of the eyes. When they clog up, pressure builds up.

That pressure then damages the optic nerve fibers over time.

Is Glaucoma Caused By Diabetes?

Not directly. The root causes for both appear to be the same. The connection is growth hormones. Plus the hormonal balance in the body.

Too much growth hormone seems to cause both diseases. So diet plays a key role. Because poor diet will cause growth hormone levels to go up. Industrial dairy products and processed foods are the worst offenders.

Is Glaucoma Related To Diabetes?

Yes, through excess growth hormones. Research shows that both diseases stem from high levels of growth hormones. But that doesn't mean every diabetic gets glaucoma. It also doesn't mean that every glaucoma patient gets diabetes. There is just a connection because both show the same root causes.

Is Glaucoma Associated With Diabetes?

Yes! Again, both have the same root causes. So there is a proven association between Diabetes and Glaucoma. Glaucoma is common in diabetic patients. Because diabetics run a higher risk of developing glaucoma.

The root causes of diabetes affect how well the eyes can drain fluids. The fluid circulation within the eye clogs up. Too much growth hormone blocks the drainage channels. Because the eyes can't remove excess fluids, eye pressure builds up. That's true for all types of glaucoma.

That pressure damages the optic nerve. It causes the fibers of the optic nerve to break down. That's why you need to test for glaucoma regularly. As the nerve breaks down, vision loss sets in. That vision loss can lead to blindness. So there is a relationship between Glaucoma and Diabetes.

How Does The Treatment and Cure of Glaucoma Work?

Glaucoma treatments are all temporary solutions. In fact, they don't treat the eye disease. They just relieve some pressure. So they treat the symptom of glaucoma, the eye pressure. A true treatment would reduce the cause, so that eye pressure wouldn't increase again.

But no medical treatment achieves that. The medical treatments include:

They wear off very fast, though. Even worse, the body becomes resistant to drops and medication over time. That's why patients have to switch types of eye drops and brands often.

So to cure glaucoma, you have to get rid of the root causes. The underlying causes that throw your hormones out of balance.

The root causes come from five areas of your life:

  1. your mind
  2. your emotions
  3. your diet
  4. your toxicity
  5. your body

Root causes in these areas cause hormonal imbalances. So you have to improve your eyesight in all these areas to truly cure glaucoma.
