The Influence of Alpha Lipoic Acid on Colour Vision of Patients with Diabetes
Szpital Okulistyczny MW-med w Krakowie
Summary: Purpose: Assessment of influence of α lipoic acid on colour vision of diabetic patients.
Material and methods: 42 diabetic patients were divided into two groups (researched and control one) of 21 people. In the researched group patients had been taking α-lipoic acid (Retixoft® 300 mg daily) for ninety days. In the control group α-lipoic acid had not been taken. Each patient executed Farnsworth-Munsel 100 hue test twice – on the first and on the ninetieth day of the research.
Results: Total error score on the first day among patients who had been taking α-lipoic acid amounted to 72.8 ± 32.3 and 62.3 ± 26.8 in the control group. After 3 months total error score among patients who had been taking α-lipoic acid (Retixoft®) decreased to 58.0 ± 20.8 (p = 0.083) and increased to 95.5 ± 42.3 (p = 0.001) in the control group. Conclusions: α-lipoic acid hinders degradation of colour vision among diabetic patients.
