Should I Stop AREDs Supplements?

Last updated: May 2023

I was a little taken back by one member's story. She said she stop taking zinc which is part of the AREDS formula because she feared it may be harmful. I’m a little disillusioned now. Do I keep taking AREDS or should I stop? Also she is taking turmeric. Are there any studies that show it helps with AMD?

As far as my story, I have had the dry type of macular degeneration for about 4 years now. Although the Amsler appears to be OK, the siding on a house from 50' or so is a little wavy.
