    Well, so sorry to hear that you have bloodshot eyes. So, as you can see, diabetes is one of the most torturous diseases we might have in our lifetime, because once got it, it could give rise to a lot of serious problems, including some problems with our eyes. Of course sometimes diabetes leads to bloodshot eyes. However, it does not mean you have diabetes, you should just consult a doctor and see what happened.

    We can't tell you have diabetes just based on the bloodshots in your eyes. There are too many reasons which can cause bloodshots in eyes. If you use the computor for too long, you might have bloodshots in eyes. If your eyes are too dry, you might have bloodshots too. Because eyes are composed of very delicate tissues, they are easy to get irritated and allergies. Thus bloodshots would be caused. Meanwhile, diabetes indeed has some effects on eyes. Yet the condition caused by diabetes is named as diabetes retinopathy, which could lead to blindness without proper treatment. So I suggest you not to worry too much about bloodshots in eyes. Usually they will clear out very soon. There are some other obvious symptoms about diabetes, for example, extremely hunger and thirst, unexplained weight loss in a sudden and increased urination frequency. You could check whether any symptoms above fit your situation. If you have, I suggest you go to hospital as soon as possible.

    Will yes, we can say that bloodshot eyes may be a sign of diabetes. First, you should know that when you suffer diabetes, it may result in cataracts, and glaucoma problems. By the way, because of diabetes, it can lead to weaker blood vessels. So the disorders in your eyes can happen. Anyway, your eyes will turn to bloodshot, even red. Of course, in some cases, it may result in dry eyes, blurred vision too. But on the other hand, for bloodshot eyes, it can be caused by eye infection and irritants. So just pay more attention to it.
