New here, age 66, AMD since November, partial improvement since


Diagnosed dry age related macular degeneration in November 2017. Progressed to wet AMD by December. Vision in right eye declined to 20/80, Left eye OK. Got injections every 5 weeks, vision improved to 20/25 but is not the same. I have to employ peripheral tilting to read chart. Started Areds in February and went back on Statins. I have high HDL cholesterol, considered a risk factor in AMD, even though it is the "good" cholesterol. Doc says my improvement is in the top 5%, so I have much to be thankful for. As for dieting, I control blood sugar to a maximum of 135 by dietary choices, resting glucose usually in the mid 90s. I'm 6'1" and 202 pounds.
