Abstract

The purpose of this study is to test whether or not drinking moderate quantities of carbonated soft drinks has any effects on diabetic retinopathy in patients with Insulindependent diabetes Mellitus. Based on personal observations, diabetic retinopathy, especially if accompanied with diabetic macular edema, seems to improve when discontinuing moderate quantities of carbonated soft mdrinks1 . Therefore it was hypothesized that carbonated beverage consumption may have an adverse effect on patients with diabetic retinopathy, specifically those with diabetic macular edema.
