    Right you are, and that makes sense about the ripeness or lack thereof.

    Now I'm curious to puree a green banana and run it through my ice cream maker--anyone tried it? Hopefully it could be stored without turning into a brick.

    I don't know. The last I was checked, my pressure was better than normal for my age, but that was some years ago.

    Thanks for letting me know. I seem to get the best vision improvement so far from mung bean starch, though it's difficult to tell for sure.

    This gives me hope. Thank you very much. I had hear of one lady who had the same problem and got cured by taking antifungals.

    Also some Italian doctors are having very good results giving high dose curcumin (also an antifungal) to cure recurring uveitis. Cured after two years.
    I use turmeric.

    Same thing for me, the left eye has astigmatism and is more affected.
    There do seem to be some interesting similarities amongst the vision improvers, so far.

    I've also seen vastly different amounts of RS listed between fresh and frozen green peas. I can't find the source at the moment........damnit!

    Thank you for the tip. Could you please direct me to the product you use?
    Have you tried arabinogalactan? I am starting this tomorrow.

    It looks like there may be something to this.

    Most cells have a mechanism to repel excess blood glucose but nerve and eye cells do not which is why vision and extremity pain serve as a canary in the BG coal mine.

    But the damage dealt by high BG is a subtle thing over years so I'd be surprised if noticeable healing took place in a short time even if the BG were suddenly corrected.

    Yeah, and the last mild night vision blurring I experienced one evening a couple days ago took less time to develop than I expected, if it wasn't a fluke. It was just minutes after all--I estimate 20+ minutes. Luckily, by the next early morning it was reversed.

    Glycation was also the first thing that came to my mind when I first noticed improvement in night vision and myopia after consuming MB starch for some time, but the apparent short time span for the improvement or worsening doesn't appear to fit, nor do my BG tests. This time the highest spike my post-prandial BG reached was 132 mg/dl.
