All I've heard the expression: "I'd rather stick a finger in the eye, but ..."
Well, it seems that the best treatments for AMD (age-related macular degeneration), Lucentis and Avastin, which this and do you put directly into the eye very dangerous side misfortune. Pharmaceutical industry with their men of science had "committed again" and new research demontreaza and the negative effects of these treatments made from produce to cash.
What is AMD?
AMD (macular degeneration due to the rising age) is a ochiulara and a leading cause of vision loss among older people. This causes damage to the macula, a small place near the center of the retina, the part of the eye needed for sharp eyesight, which allows us to see objects even in front of us.
In some people, AMD so slowly advancing way as vision loss occurs for a long period of time. In other cases, the disease progresses faster and may result in a loss of vision in one or both eyes. As AMD progresses? Blurry area close to the Centre of vision is a common symptom. Along time, the încetosata area can grow larger or may develop white spots in the central area. Objects, too, might not be as para bright as before. AMD itself does not lead to complete blindness, nor the ability to see. However, loss of central vision may interfere with daily activities, such as the simplest things, ability to see faces, drive a car, read, write or do little things around the House.
First let's take a quick look at Lucentis and Avastin for eyes, as the pain is not the worst thing compared to what may cause these two drugs.
Brands of medications produced Lucentis specifically for treating AMD. AVASTIN is a popular medication for treating cancer, but it is used (off-label) and for macular degeneration. Despite the huge cost difference, Department of Veterans Affairs (u.s. Department of Veterans Affairs) has recently suspended the use of Avastin. That's because the drug can cause serious eye infections that lead to blindness. However, there is a bizarre detail ... Results of a study funded by Genentech (those producing Avastin) showed that there is a risk of 11% higher to die during treatment with Avastin compared to users of Lucentis. But why would the public make these Genentech negative results, what they advertise bad? Because ... Genentech is going to be the one that produces and Lucentiswho does not want to sell AVASTIN at a much lower price.
So stick to buy Lucentis, which according to their official website, some patients have charged with aching eyes, headaches and respiratory infections. Some patients have had detached retina and infection inside the eye. Others have experienced blood clots, heart attacks, strokes and death.
And so, once a month injectezi eyeball a dangerous drug worth 300 pounds, so that you don't have a healthy knowledge of treatment with natural products.
A few years ago I told of the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS), a clinic in full swing and prestigious recognition is sponsored by the US National Eye Institute. In this study, a specific combination of supplements have helped prevent macular degeneration:
• Vitamin C-500 mg
• Vitamin E-400 IU
• Beta-carotene 15 mg
• Zinc (as zinc oxide)-80mg
• Copper (as copper oxide)-2 mg
"Macular Degeneration Research" found this combination can help prevent AMD and its treatment in advanced stage.
Medica ProNatura will help you with a wide variety of food options that include lutein and zeaxanthin (carotenoids, antioxidants rich), which reduces the risk of AMD. The yolks of eggs, fruits and vegetables are the best sources of lutein and zeaxanthin.
