Diabetic Retinopathy


About
Those with diabetes are at risk of developing this disorder of the eyes. Leaking capillaries near the retina may cause blurred vision, retinal hemorrhaging, accumulated fluid in the eyes, and eventually blindness.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
