Houston, we have a problem

by Volker Weber

As some of you have noticed, postings are becoming somewhat sparse. There is a reason behind this change:

A close family member is suffering from advanced wet AMD.

All treatments have failed to stop the progress. I have no idea yet how to resolve the issues arising now. Activity on this site may increase again when I get a grip on the situation.

Best wishes for you and your family.

Also from me - best wishes to both you and the family.

According to

http://www.luteininfo.com/german/body_what_is_amd3.shtml

it seems to be a typical american disease. Never heard of it before.

Best wishes for you and your family.

I am sending you and your family my best wishes and enought power and alot of luck to get over that problem.

My sympathies. My father and mother-in-law both had this issue... fortunately caught early on. My father received conventional treatment, eye drops and vitamins and is doing better. My mother-in-law saw a homeopathic healer who prescribed 'eye-bright', essentially an herb and vitamin cocktail, and she is much improved also. We'll certainly keep you and yours in mind with this.

Well, what can I say... Nothing more than joining in with the others. Be assured of my best wishes and my deepest sympathy.

Hey Volker,
hatten ähnliches Problem in der Familie, was sich später aber als andere Erkrankung herausstellen sollte. Die besten Augenkliniken sind in Heidelberg und konnten dort letztlich auch den Ausschluß treffen, daß es AMD nicht war. Was sie dann aber feststellten , war leider nicht besser und erforderte 6 OP's, um die schleichende Erblindung bei fast Nullsichtigkeit zu stoppen. Gott sei Dank war nur ein Auge betroffen, wenngleich auch noch das Besser Sehende.
Rest ggf. per Mail, wenn Du noch was brauchst.....
Jetzt von hier alles Gute für die schweren TAge für Dich und Deine Familie - Melde Dich, wenn Land in Sicht ist.

From an article in USA Today...angiogenesis are beind used for Macular degeneration. In the "wet" form of this disease, blood vessels begin growing behind the retina. VEGF causes the blood vessels to leak, destroying vision

According to this site clinical trials are being conducted throughout the world

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
