Abstract: CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE: Diabetic retinopathy is a disease caused by increased permeability of retinal vessels. Its incidence and prevalence have been increasing due to urbanization, greater life expectancy and the habits of modern life. Its onset is insidious and it may lead to blindness in 75% of individuals who have been diabetic for more than 20 years. The aim here was to evaluate the evidence from Cochrane systematic reviews on interventions relating to diabetic retinopathy. DESIGN AND SETTING: Review of sy… Show more

“…Diabetic retinopathy (RD) has an insidious onset and can lead to blindness in 75% of diabetic patients with more than 20 years of disease [9]. Its prevalence as a disease that threatens vision and produces blindness is variable worldwide with a confidence interval between 3 and 8% of patients with diabetes [10] [11].…”

“…DM2 is considered a potential cause of changes in postural balance (PB) 7 . Patients with diabetes often present with disorders in the sensory systems responsible for the maintenance of PB due to comorbidities such as retinopathy, peripheral neuropathy, and disorders in the vestibular system [7][8][9][10] .…”
