Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is a medical condition (ICD-10-CM M51.35-37) in which there are anatomic changes and a loss of function of varying degrees of one or more intervertebral discs of the spine of sufficient magnitude as to cause symptoms. The root cause is thought to be loss of soluble proteins within the fluid contained in the disc with resultant reduction of the oncotic pressure ...
Stargardt disease is the most common inherited single gene retinal disease. It usually has an autosomal recessive inheritance caused by mutations in the ABCA4 gene. Rarely it has an autosomal dominant inheritance due to defects with ELOVL4 or PROM1 genes. It is characterised by macular degeneration that begins in childhood, adolescence or adulthood, resulting in progressive loss of vision.
A new study has found an interesting correlation between several degenerative eye diseases and the onset of Alzheimer's disease. No mechanism explaining the connection has been proposed at this ...
Degenerative disk disease is when normal changes that take place in the disks of your spine cause pain. Spinal disks are like shock absorbers between the vertebrae, or bones, of your spine. They ...
Treatment for Degenerative Disc Disease. Treatment for degenerative disc disease ranges from conservative therapies to surgical interventions. The goals of treatment are to relieve pain, prevent or reduce stress on the discs, and maintain normal function.. Conservative Treatment for Degenerative Disc Disease
Risk Factors and Causes of Degenerative Disc Disease. Degenerative disc disease typically is a result of the natural aging process, although it also can be caused by injury or trauma.At birth, intervertebral discs are about 80% water, along with collagen and proteins, with most of the water located in the nucleus pulposus.

Given the magnitude of the problem and its far reaching consequences, it is no surprise that there are many research efforts which explore environmental, genetic, and dietary factors that may contribute to retinal degenerative disease.
The Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation is the only patient organization for CRB1 disease. Our patients are blind or visually impaired due to mutations in the CRB1 gene causing a rare, genetic, degenerative retinal disease (Leber’s Congenital Amaurosis, Retinitis Pigmentosa, or cone-rod dystrophy) Some of the children have already lost most of their sight.
