Age related Macular degenaration
My 79 years old father has age related macular degeneration dry for last one year. Dr suggested him to take new I-site capsules which he was already taking. Some one suggested that he should take Gloeye in addition to new I Site capsules. ie he should take gloeye and isite both. Also it is suggested that he should take omega 3 supplement too. I am a bit confused. Isite capsules are sufficient or he should add gloeye??? Also whether he should start taking omega 3 supplement too. If yes how much?

Hello For dry ARMD....only omega 3 fatty acids are not sufficient. He must take a combination of zinc,salenium,vitamin C,vitamin E combination in concentration as specified by AREADS trial.... You can take only one supplement...no need to waste money on two supplements. Can you send me composition of gloeye and I site capsules so that I may guide you the better option. Regarding omega 3 fatty acid...my suggestion is to avoid wasting money on capsules but you can buy WALNUT... walnut is a good source omega fatty acids Regards
