Abstract

Blurred vision, a well-known complication of uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, is occasionally overlooked as the first and only presenting symptom of type I diabetes mellitus. In this report we describe six type I diabetic patients whose first and only symptom of the disease was blurred vision, as documented by increased glycosylated hemoglobin. Institution of therapy was delayed until the classical symptoms of diabetes mellitus appeared.
