The Glaucoma-Dry Eye Paradox

Friday, November 04, 2016

Peer-reviewed studies suggest that primary open-angle glaucoma, but not ocular hypertension, can be associated with impaired basal (non reflex) tear turnover. Dry eye complaints may be associated with tear film deficiencies caused by unidentified open-angle glaucoma, as well as the drugs used to treat the disease, so careful attention must be paid to dry eye symptomatology.

Biosyntrx strongly believes Impact Matters and that there is still a major place for highly entertaining medical education immune to CME restrictions—particularly when it’s half the price of comparable winter meetings.

Vitamin D and Myopia

Friday, October 14, 2016

The not-too-surprising study data collected by the Vitamin D Council and published by the new journal Springer Nature (created by merging Holtzbrinck Publishing with Nature Publishing Group) strongly suggests that low vitamin D status is related to longer axial length and an alarming increased risk of myopia developing in early childhood, adolescence and teenage years.

After our long-term powdered capsule manufacturer was sold, the Biosyntrx board of directors elected to maintain our long-standing mission and core values by taking the time required for serious due diligence before selecting a new manufacturer.

A Nation at Risk of Alzheimer's, AMD and Diabetes

Friday, September 23, 2016

One of my favorite English journals called the New Scientist included a blockbuster story a couple of years ago that teased out the connection between increased Alzheimer’s risk and excessive sugar intake. This suggests that making a lifestyle choice to reduce sugar intake may lower the risk of developing Alzheimer's.

N-acetylcysteine, the Powerhouse Antioxidant

Friday, September 16, 2016

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is the acetylated form of the amino acid cysteine, the sulfur-based amino acid produced in the body from methionine. It has been suggested in a large number of published scientific studies to rapidly metabolize to intracellular glutathione, the mother of all antioxidants found inside every cell in the body, including the eye and brain.
