I am a general ophthalmologist with a special interest in diabetic eye disease.  It has been my observation since the release of the ACCORD Eye Study this summer that every patient with diabetic retinopathy that I have seen in the last two months has been on simvastatin and not one has not been on a fibrate.  I have been recommending that their primary care physicians consider adding fibrates for these patients.  I don't know how that will go over with the PCPs, but I do feel after reading the study that if I had diabetic retinopathy and diabetic dyslipidemia with elevated triglycerides, I would want to be on a fibrate.  I am interested in hearing the opinions of the members.

BTW, I take every opportunity to recommend to my patients the principles expoused by Dr. Davis.

Thanks to all,
John

Hypertriglyceridemia and dyslipidemia are positively related to carbohydrate-rich diet. To understand diabetes mellitus must first understand its relationship to diet.
