Antioxidants helps retinopathy in diabetes caused by insulin

Another reason for diabetics to take more vitamin C.

Supplementation with antioxidants attenuates transient worsening of retinopathy in diabetes caused by acute intensive insulin therapy.

Ascorbic acid, α-lipoic acid, and α-tocopherol also decreased superoxide anion production

Insulin can increase ROS production through an NAD(P)H, phosphatidylinositol 3´-kinase-dependent mechanism in bovine retinal microvascular endothelial cells ex vivo. ROS can regulate insulin-induced VEGF expression. Supplementation with antioxidants may help to attenuate the transient worsening of retinopathy in diabetes caused by acute intensive insulin therapy.
