Notes for this study:
In adults diagnosed with type II diabetics and with signs of diabetic retinopathy, supplementation of _ruscus aculeatus_ (37.5mg twice daily, ruscogenin content and concentration of the extract not specified) for three months was able to improve parameters of glucose metabolism including blood glucose (10.2%), fructosamine (7.8%), and HbA1c (15.6%). Lipid parameters appeared to be benefitted, with total cholesterol being reduced 9.4% and HDL-C being increased 23%. While it appeared to benefit retinopathy in a subset of patients, the improve in visual acuity and oscillating amplitudes seen failed to reach statistical significance. No placebo group was used in this study.
