Written by Dr Michael Lange on October 25, 2013
Michael Lange OD of Lange Eye Care develops the first Genotype Directed
nutritional supplements for Macular Degeneration.
Michael Lange OD founder of Fortifeye Vitamins has been involved in research and development of nutritional
supplements for eye and total body health for over 10 years. The newest studies
now indicate that a relatively high percentage of patients with specific DNA for
macular degeneration may be harmed by taking zinc supplements. These new studies
also indicate a percent of macular degeneration patients will benefit from
supplemental zinc! Dr. Lange states ” Doctors that are making nutritional
supplement recommendations for patients with macular degeneration should do a
simple DNA test to see what category these patients fall in and then make
nutritional supplement recommendations based on this DNA.” Michael Lange OD and Fortifeye Vitamins have
developed six different levels of supplements for macular degeneration
patients based on age, weight, level of disease and DNA. The newest formula is
called Fortifeye Zinc Free Macular Defense and will be available end of October.
Dr Lange has 9 locations throughout Florida that are involved in Genetic testing
and nutritional counseling for macular degeneration.
