Omega 3 Prevents Prediabetic and Diabetic Eye Diseases

Did you know that omega 3 prevent
diabetic retinopathy? And by the way, did you know it’s not just diabetic? By the
time somebody gets a diagnosis of diabetes, a third already have diabetic
eye disease. Here’s an article that talks
about it. It came from the PREDIMED study. It’s a study that was done in… a
popular study that was done in Italy on prevention. What they did was a
longitudinal study, looking for.. looking for retinopathy and retinopathy
to the extent that it was needed to have treatment. So this is not just mild
vision loss. This is the ophthalmologist had to go in and do some treatment on
the eye. In late 2015, as part of the PREDIMED study, they conceived a
prospective study within the randomized clinical trial Prevencion Con Dieta Mediterranea. In other words, the PREDIMED study, there were 3,614 individuals
aged 55 to 80. These were individuals that already had type 2 diabetes. Full
data were available, 48% of them. Here’s the thing that whether… here’s what kind
of therapy were they requiring. Anti-angiogenic therapy. In other words,
going in and and shooting the back of the eyeball to stop bleeding, to stop
growth of blood vessels into the retina. Again, this is instrumentation to the eye.
What they found was a 48% relatively relative reduced risk 48 percent reduce
risk of incident sight-threatening diabetic retinopathy. Get that again. It
cut the risk enhance with omega 3s and what were they taking 500 milligrams of
dietary omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids to
weekly servings of an oily fish. Part of the question is do I usually get this
question to our supplement? Actually, I do supplement, and I eat oily fish more than
twice a week so I get a ton of omega 3s. And by the way, just another
reminder, are you thinking that, “Well, you know, this is that was in diabetics. I
don’t need to worry about it.” Number one: by the time people get a diagnosis of
type 2 diabetes, 1/3 already have damage to the eye. And guess what number 2? What portion of people that have insulin resistance do you think actually know it?
10% probably, not even better. So be afraid, be very afraid,
get checked, make sure that you don’t have insulin resistance. Thank you very
much for your interest. So I’m very excited to announce we now
have a membership page. Now, what is that? That’s the one place where you can go
and access all of our digital products. It starts off with a few free things,
like a lot of infographics which help you understand the basics of insulin
resistance, cardiovascular inflammation, and other key concepts on how to prevent
heart attack and stroke. The next free item is the intro and first chapter of
the book that we’re writing on plaque and the standards of medicine just aren’t
doing very well right now in terms of the number one killer and disabler –
plaque. We don’t do a good job of measuring it, we don’t do a good job of
monitoring it, and there are better ways. So that’s what this book is all about.
Again, go in, and get a free look at the intro and the first chapter. And if
you’ve purchased the cardiovascular inflammation and IR courses, thank you so
much for doing that. You purchased those at a time before we had them totally
cleaned up. And we’ve cleaned them up now and they’re available for you right
there on the membership page. Hit the link below, register and go in, and take a
look. Look forward to seeing you there. Thank you.

  1. It is amazing how much researchers like to impress us with relative risks. In most cases it means almost nothing. It is just deceiving. What is the absolute risk reduction? In addition it is not a trial, it is observational epidemiological study. There is no cause and effect can be established here. Please try not to promote another hype. I know you don't do it on purpose. Just pay attention please.

  2. Another great post Dr. Brewer and what else can prevent diabetic retinopathy ? Is PEA a top contender as they are formulating it into nanodrops so as to penetrate better into the eye when using drops and the research looks promising. I like the PEA made in the Netherlands with a little bit of luteolin and sunflower lecithin added, but have only been using this for a year. I also use a product called MacuGuard and a Vision Complex product with lutein and zeaxanthin. Oily fish like sardines or mackerel work great to make tuna salad, as does canned Alaskan wild salmon, but I only use avocado oil mayo, store bought or homemade. They have a tasty avocado mayo at Costco now.
    When i had some cataracts removed 1 1/2 years ago I went back for a one week checkup and the doctor was amazed at how much my eyes had healed. She said they had healed in one week as much as most people take one month. I was over 70 at the time so that looks pretty promising that what I am doing is working.
    After 1 1/2 years strict keto my a1c had dropped from 5.5 to 5.0. HDL at 87 and triglycerides at 57 and CAC score of 11.5. I don't pay attention to total cholesterol or LDL much anymore. My omega 3 index was 7.0 a few years ago and need to get it tested again as it needs to be over 8. MY c-peptide was .96.
    MY lymphocyte/monocyte ratio dropped below 3.0 for the first time in about 6 years, so I am working hard on prostate issues and will comment more at your prostate videos.

  3. Well that is ironic, I just finished off a can of sardines before i watched this video. lol I eat sardines pretty much on a daily basis. They are not the most delicious part of my day but they are really not that bad either and I believe they might be the worlds most complete food. I think you could eat sardines only for quite an extended period of time before a nutritional deficiency would set in. Do not confuse sardines with smoked herring, often referred to as kipper snacks. Kippers are much more tasty and also high in omega threes but not quite as high in overall nutrition. I guess you could say sardines are the poor mans salmon. lol

  4. While omega 3 might be helpful, the best way to avoid diabetic retinopathy is to normalize blood glucose – the ideal is to keep sugars in the range of 82 to 120mg/dl pretty much all the time – a real challenge. And, remember that significant loss of vision usually only occurs when retinopathy is at an advanced stage (ie proliferative). Nowadays, proliferative retinopathy is often treated by intravitreal injections of aflibercept (“Eyelea”). Retinopathy very often does not result in significant loss of vision until an advanced stage. Early stage retinooathy can be reversed by normalizing blood sugars, as can neuropathy, and nephropathy.
