some swelling, but this should

improve within a few weeks. More

than one session carries more risks

of side effects to your overall vision

but will still be better than no

treatment at all.

Eye injections. A type of drug -

called anti-VEGF - is given into

the eye (usually once a month over

a few sessions) to help slow down

any damage when you have eye

swelling, and you should notice

results generally within a month.

After the injection, your eye

pressure will be monitored to make

sure there are no problems.

Steroids. If other treatments aren't

successful, steroid injections can

help if you have severe eye damage.

The injection administers a tiny

implant that releases the steroid

treatment over three years.

Eye surgery (vitreoretinal surgery).

This is performed under general

anaesthetic requires an overnight

hospital stay. Your eye specialist

will explain how well it is likely to

work for you and the risks involved.

Diabetic maculopathy

oedema (DMO)

This is a complication of diabetic

retinopathy when leaky vessels cause

fluid to build up in the macula at the

centre of the retina. The damage

occurs over several years and may

affect the whole retina or only small

bulges in the blood vessels of the

retina. However, when the blood

vessels in or close to the macula

become damaged, or blood or fluid

leaks into the macula, vision can

deteriorate dramatically. You may

notice:

dark spots, particularly first thing

in the morning

objects changing shape, size or

colour or even seem to move or

disappear

colours fading

bright light or glare hard to

tolerate

difficulty reading.

DMO can be treated if caught

early, usually with eye injections

- Lucentis (ranibizumab) or Eylea

(aflibercept) - to stop fluid leaking

from the blood vessels. As with some

other types of diabetic retinopathy,

steroid injections and laser treatment

can also be a treatment option for

some people.

Stephenson-Grey took part in the

London 2012 Olympics Games torch

relay and still trains (prior to lockdown) at

the track and in the gym. The exercises

she does include standing squats, pressups, the

plank, lunges, the superman

pose (when the opposite arm and leg are

stretched out) and sit ups.

She says, "This type of fitness session

is inspired by the type of session I've often

done with my training group over the

years, particularly at the start of the winter

or summer training season, as it helps

build strength and fitness as a foundation

to move onto other things. It works the

arms, legs and core areas throughout

the session, which can be helpful when

training a lot, because no one area is

necessarily over-worked or strained."

The home workout videos have been

accepted by many in the community.

She adds, "I'm sharing what training

sessions work for me. Please remember

that you know your own fitness, health

and diabetes best. Seek medical advice

if you are concerned about undertaking

physical activity."
