Re: floaters.

I have those too. The high fat low carb diet did not eliminate them, they are still there. In my case, they showed up in the mid 1990-ties when I was 40-ty. They seem to coincide with the episodes of tachycardia (rapid heart beat) I used to experience every couple of month or so, until shortly after going on a high fat diet in 1999. That made me think that they may have been blood pressure (in the head) related.

I know they are related to myopia. The more nearsighted you are the greater your chance of getting floaters. I don't think it has anything to do with blood pressure but who knows? I used to get bouts of tachycardia before being really careful of my own low fat diet.
