blurred vision after eating?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I notice that often about twenty minutes or so after a meal, my vision gets blurry and I have trouble focusing. It's kind of freaking me out. It lasts for about an hour or so. The only health issue I have is hypothyroidism and that's supposedly being controlled with medication. Does this ring a bell with anyone, sound like a symptom of anything? or is it just me being a hypochondriac?

that's scary.. nothing has changed? does it happen after you eat anything?

Eeek, I may be way off but my first thought was blood sugar issues. I know that blood sugar issues (high or low) can blur vision. The timing after eating would be consistent with blood sugar jumps (and or falls after jumps). Do you see a pattern in the types of meals that you see blurred vision after (high carb vs. low carb)?

I think you need to have your blood sugar levels checked. Is there any diabetes in your family?

It could be something like hypoglycemia too.

Get tested for sugar or at the very least, cut out all refined carbs and see whether you can control it that way.

Thanks, sounds like there is a consensus! I've been meaning to go to the doctor anyway, I feel like total crap lately just in general. I'll definitely get my blood sugar tested. It makes sense because my dermatologist asked me about it a few weeks ago, something about my skin (thickening?) made her think I might have blood sugar issues. Hmmm...

actually, could you be deficient in b vits? soy can inhibit absorption. you can try a simple sublinguual b and see if symptoms ease up. Hypoglycemia may be tied to this.

This happens to my mother, and she has hypoglycemia. She has it happen if she eats a lot of sugars and starches. Doesn't happen if she sticks to a low-carb high-protein diet.

to you mama. I hope you find out what is going on.
