Thalasselis syndrome

From what I can ascertain Thalasselis proposes a link between magnesium metabolism and KC.

Interesting, Chris, thanks for posting that!


Probably....magnesium deficiency...


As far as I know, one of the simptoms that a person lacks the magnesium is that she/he is constantly tired, exousted, wants to sleep...I experiense that feeling almost all the time since I do not know how many years...On the other hand magnesium can be found in cacao beans or simply chocolate...I am not a big consumer of chocolate...On the other hand it may be a deficiency or problems in the magnesium metabolism as well...


Interesting in any case...

It is indeed interesting. I have a little the same symptoms than you, Yarsky. But what seems me to be a little strange, it is this association is a theory which had been supported by only one phisician. You can watch http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?CMD=search&DB=pubmed. All studies about this are from the same person, Doctor Thalasis http://thalasselis.freeservers.com/. He tells, on the site, that keratoconus is wordly recognized like being a Thalasis Syndrome, if his studies are as true as this asseration, we can doubtful about the scientific value of this study. So, it is a question to ask some other physicians to know if it can really be useful to follow a cure of magnesium.

Thank you very much Action444


I edited your post to sort out the links, use the URL button when posting links, it sometimes needs to be used depending on which browser is used.


The Pub med link does not go to any particular study BTW and i was wondering if the text in the other link could be translated (the translator button on my browser seems to have disappeared!)


Anyway, I think this topic is more than interesting since you posted Action444... I wonder how they know if someone is deficent in Magnesium?... is it with a blood test?


If so i'll mention this to a Dr I am going to met in London who has a keen interest in kc, if we can look in to this... or something similar to see if there is a way to check this out with patients that visit him with KC. I think he will be getting a vast amount of patients because of his interest in KC.


Also i was wondering if the deficentcy is retified by sorting out the cause or by taking supplements if this will have any effect on improving vision for us or even halting kc?


Its something that needs to be found out i think...


Thanks again and welcome!

Hello, Action444. It is realy a case: all 5 articles on the link between KC and magnesium deficiency are done by one author. Since the end of 80s it looks like it is only him who published on the subject. As far as I remember, magnesium treatments are given (at least in France) when a person is very tired, or, on the other hand, has insomnia. On the yet another hand, I think one may freely by magnesium as a food supplement...The effect (do not know exactly which) may be seen in months of takinbg this supplement....
