  • Age-related Macular Degeneration and Omega-3

    Praise the good fats:

    "Data from the present study also shows the supplements and omega-3 fatty acids collaborate with low-dietary glycemic index (dGI) diets against progression to advanced AMD,"

    Excellent news!

    Mother had Wet AMD is one eye which was considered to be not cost effective to treat. So I try to take care of her one remaining functional eye which has dry AMD. I feed her lots of fish and Real Meat anyway, and also ensure she has plenty of stuff from this list

    which we mostly get from dietary sources (also they are good for my diabetes)

    So far the eye has not gotten much worse

    Pity I can't persuade her to cut down on the carbs though but at 93 she's pretty set in her ways

      Glad to hear it. At age 50, my eyesight is crap (near-sightedness and astigmatism) even without macular degeneration. Wish I could do something about these damned varicose floaters. I've had them all my life, but they've gotten so bad over the past several years that sometimes it looks like I'm walking through a cloud of microorganisms.

        Don't know enough about them to suggest anything specific, except lots of coloured veggies and fruits/berries for the bioflavinoids, antioxidants etc. (plus salmon and prawns for the astaxanthin) at worst this may help prevent any other conditions from adding to your woes

          Yeah, I already eat all that stuff. Makes me think I'd be blind by now if I didn't!

          Parallels the stuff you hear about how exercise is good for your brain. I wonder how forgetful I'd be if I didn't exercise!
