Circulating lipoprotein and blood glucose levels in association with low-tension and chronic simple glaucoma.
  1. A. F. Winder

    Abstract

    Circulating lipoprotein and blood glucose levels were determined for 53 patients with low-tension glaucoma and 39 patients with chronic simple glaucoma. The incidence of hypercholesterolaemia was significantly higher in the low-tension group than in the chronic simple glaucoma group and control data obtained elsewhere. Preliminary follow-up results of the effects of treatment are also reported. The incidence of raised fasting blood glucose levels was not significantly increased in either group.
