    IDF Clinical Practice Recommendations for Managing DME

    Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) is a potential complication of diabetic retinopathy. It is caused by disruption of the blood-retinal barrier due to long-term hyperglycaemia (high blood glucose), leading to retinal thickening around the fovea. DME currently affects more than 28 million people with diabetes. These Clinical Practice Recommendations are intended to facilitate the work of general practitioners, hospital physicians, and other clinicians working in diabetes-related eye disease management.
