Diabetes can also cause color blindness, says study
A new study on the effects of diabetes has found that it impairs the color vision of the patient.
The researchers claim that being a longer a person has diabetes, the more chance there is of them being color blind.
One in five diabetic people who did not have diabetic retinopathy were found to be impaired in color vision.
Diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease which can result in vision loss.
Whereas in case of color blindness, the person is not able to differentiate between various colors.
This can have a negative impact on the professional life of people who work in fields like design and architecture.
This study was done on more than 800 people from different ethnic backgrounds who had Type 2 diabetes.
