Default please help/cataracts/no health insurance

Dear natmedtalk members, My name is Elbert Vaughn. I am a new member to the group. Please, Please have mercy and help me if you can. Tell me what to say, and how to say it to get you to reply.

I have cataracts caused by my diabetes. I have no health insurance, and I can never afford cataract surgery at this time. I am frantically searching for non-surgical solutions that can advert surgery all together or delay it until I can find some affordable health insurance. If you have any information/advice that you think can help me, please, please for the love God, please share it with me.

I am hysterical, because I can be blind within a year(diabetes causes cataracts to progress very fast).I have other complications from diabetes, but I must address these cataracts first, because they can cause blindness. It is my 1st priority because I am a single father, and my kids will be taken away from me to childs protective services(foster home)because of my deteriorating eyesight which will cause me to lose my job. If you have any info, and/or any personal experiences on any non-surgical(topical eyedrops/oral medication) dissolving cataracts/diminishing cataracts/halting the progression of cataracts or anything positive about any product that you or someone you know may have benefited from, please for the love of God, please get in contact with me,and share with me what you know.

I have been diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes 5 months ago, as I mentioned I have no health insurance and can never afford cataract surgery at this time. What I have dreaded has happened , and that is that diabetes would effect my eyes, because I knew I would never be able to afford any kind of surgery or laser surgery for my eyes, because I have no health insurance. I am frantically trying to try to obtain some affordable health insurance, so I can pay for cataract surgery which I have been unable to obtain every since being diagnosed with diabetes 3 years ago. In the meantime I am hoping and praying I can find a non-surgical product to prevent me for possible going blind ( As I mention the prospects of going blind is constantly on my mind because I am a single father, and my kids most likely will be taken away from me. Please, please, please have mercy and reply to this message if you know anything that can help a person such as myself).

I am hoping a member of this forum has had some personal experience of having success with any products dissolving cataracts or getting some positive results from any alternative non-surgical treatments of their cataracts. Any positive experience you may have or someone that you know may have had with a product that has been effective in the treatment of cataracts, please, please, please let me know.

I have tried (5) products(all from overseas, because they are the only ones I can afford), and have not gotten any positive results as far as my vision being improved. If anyone who is a member of the group that has gotten any positive results from the taking of any products that claim to reverse/halt or dissolve cataracts, please share your story with me. I am looking for any product at the very least halting these cataracts so I can find some health insurance. Any advice, any opinion, anything you tell me that you think that would be helpful to me I will be appreciative, and be eternally grateful for anything you can tell me. That could possibly help me save my sight. Thank you.

Sorry for your despair Elbert. You are not alone with this problem. Fortunately I don't share this problem, but I've been interested in a product, called Can-C, for many years, in case I might need such a thing. After reading this statement, you should be able to find Can-C at places like Amazon.com You can search the web for Can-C and find very many testimonials, even for dogs.

Quote:
Can C Eye Drops have been hailed as a major breakthrough in the treatment of senile cataracts. They are n-acetylcarnosine eye drops (NAC) – a powerful anti-ageing oxidant that has proven benefits to cataract suffers. As the leading brand of cataract drops, Can C Eye Drops offer a tried and tested alternative to surgery in the treatment of senile cataracts.

Can-C contains a synthesised formulation of the anti-oxidant carnosine known as n-acetylcarnosine (NAC). NAC is based on the naturally occurring nutrient di-peptide carnosine (a combination of two amino-acids, or protein fragments). It is the key ingredient in Can-C cataract eye drops due to NAC’s potency at ‘mopping up’ free radicals. As the root of tissue damage and accelerated ageing in our bodies, free radicals are the main culprit behind the cataract condition.

Can C eye drops for cataracts contain NAC due to its robust characteristics. This is because carnosine’s ability to tackle free radicals and cataracts is blunted by the natural enzymes in the eye breaking carnosine down. However, NAC is highly resistant to this breakdown which, combined with the slow release characteristics of Can-C n-acetylcarnosine eye drops, makes them highly effective in the treatment of cataracts.

Can-C carnosine eye drops also tackle the bodily process of glycation (also known as cross-linking) – another key factor behind ageing and the development of cataracts. This is where glucose leads to changes and a hardening of tissues over time. Can-C cataract eye drops deliver a powerful anti-oxidant boost to the eye – counteracting the natural decline of anti-oxidants as we grow older – to protect the eye lens proteins from free-radical induced deterioration.

The breakthrough behind Can-C and the introduction of n-acetylcarnosine eye drops took place in the early 1990s, with landmark research by the bio-physicist Dr Mark Babizhayev and a Russian research team.

Human trials on cataract sufferers, involving a twice daily dose of NAC formulated drops over a period of six months, produced remarkable results. The research revealed that:

  • 88.9 per cent of patients had improved glare sensitivity (which is a general decline in the sharpness of objects and surroundings –things literally becoming a bit fuzzy around the edges);
  • 90 per cent reported improved visual acuity – clearer and sharper vision;
  • Perhaps most significantly, in that cataracts are characterised by a clouding of the eye lens, 41 per cent of patients experienced a significant improvement in lens ‘transmissivity’.

And while the patients were taking the NAC carnosine eye drops, Dr Babizhayev noted that there was no recurrence of cataract development. He further reported that drug tolerance was good - there were no side effects, based on the dosage of 1% NAC.

yes, I agree with jfh. This is certainly a product to look at.

Meanwhile you probably need to consider a new approach to your diabetes as this problem will not just go away. Is this type I or type II diabetes?
Are you on insulin?

OK, I reread your post and clearly this is type II diabetes. Type II diabetes can be reversed but you will really really want to reverse it.

It will take major lifestyle changes including diet and exercise and a willingness to let go of the conventional medicine fear mongering system

I agree that its essential you get the diabetes under control. If you smoke or drink alcohol this will also make cataracts worse.
In the meantime try the Can C eyedrops. The eyedrops can take a few months before any improvements so it will need patience.

You can also try these supplements as well which will help to slow down the formation of cataracts.

https://www.vitacost.com/Vitacost-Syn...n-360-Capsules
(The dosage is 6 per day which will cost $1 a day. If you cant afford that many take as many up to 6 as you can afford)

(these are not swallowed but dissolved under the tongue)

You can also try Benfotiamine, an active form of Vitamin B1.

You should keep a close watch on your blood sugar whilst taking supplementation as some of the ingredients could lower your blood sugar.

From Grizzly

You have to stop the progression of diabetes first. Ending the insulin resistance and insulin spiking can't happen as long as you rely on carbs for a large share of your diet. Read "The Paleo Solution," and "Mastering Leptin" People have stopped diabetes but it takes a major change in lifestyle and the elimination of just about every food that came along with the agricultural age.

Take zeanxanthin and lutein, and eat blueberrries, bilberries, blackberries habitually.

You won't find supplements that will reverse the accumulated effects of diabetes. It's a case of putting the fire out before you start trying to rebuild. It's been done, and it's being done every day. Takes a mountain of commitment...but with your life and quality of life in the balance...well that's a mountain of motivation.

No one can do it for you. Go for it and good luck.

Elbert,

I addition to what has already been mentioned you should also take high doses of Vitamin C. The other supplement that works well is something called astaxanthin. It's been shown to have some very positive effects on cataracts. You'll need to change your diet, too. Get rid of all the sugar products, simple carbohydrates like bread, pasta, potatoes. They all drive your insulin up which is contributing to the problem. Hope this helps you.

Dear Elbert, so sorry to hear of your plight.

This may help you...
'I read your article about cataracts and thought I'd tell you about my wife who was told that she had cataracts in both eyes by Vision Express. She was then advised that taking blueberries was good for the eyes. She started taking blueberries and pure blueberry juice daily and after a year returned to Vision Express and was told she no longer had cataracts'
- A letter published in 'Mature Times' (UK)

Double cataracts completely eliminated by nothing more than blueberries. No surgery, no pills.

* Vision Express are one of the UK's leading eye specialist companies. They supply reading glasses and the like. Experts in the field.

Another excellent natural remedy for serious eye disorders is marigold. A trusted folk remedy here in the British Isles for many hundreds of years.

* You can acquire such supplements these days for a fraction of the price mentioned in the article!

PS: I notice you've tried 5 different eye supplements - having been diagnosed 5 months ago.

Very common for people to try something for a few days or a week and when they don't notice any change they declare said remedy to be a failure and abandon it!

Most of the British herbal tradition goes back hundreds of years. A lot of it goes back as far as the Druids - over two thousand years ago! Most of the North American herbal tradition hails from the Native Americans and is of a similar timespan. It wouldn't have lasted that long if it didn't work!
I always say, unless you have some adverse reaction, take it at least for a full course - that's 6 weeks. Then make a decision on it's merit or otherwise.
