    Glaucoma likely a metabolic disease, treatable by pyruvate and/or niacinamide

    About a year ago, a publication came out that demonstrated therapeutic effects of raising the (mitochondrial) NAD/NADH ratio in glaucoma patients. That study used niacinamide (NAM) and suggested that the "irreversible" changes in eye structure seen in glaucoma patients are in fact nothing more...
