Is Niacin Effective In Slowing Down the Process of PKD

Is Niacin Effective In Slowing Down the Process of PKDIn recent years, niacin, also called vitamin B3, has attracted more and more PKD patients’ attention. This is because some researches have claimed that niacin is effective in slowing down the process of Polycystic Kidney Disease. Is this true?

The theory of niacin on treating PKD

Polycystic Kidney Disease is one inherited disorder that is reported to have an intimate link with SIRT1, which is one special protein in the gene. Also, the activity of this protein in PKD patients is more active than that in other people, while niacin just can inhibit the activity of this special protein. Hence, some people try to take niacin to prevent the onset and growth of PKD kidney cysts.

Is niacin so magical?

Polycystic Kidney Disease is one terrible disease that can pass on in one family generation after generation. If niacin is so effective on treating this genetic kidney disease, no PKD patient needs t worry about their kidney damage and the process of their kidney disease. From this point, we can know even if niacin can help slow down the progression of Polycystic Kidney Disease, its effect is still very restricted. If patients want to manage their kidney problem and avoid kidney failure, they are suggested to accept more effective and systemic therapies as early as possible.

The latest treatment for PKD patients?

According to the cause and characteristics of Polycystic Kidney Disease, one breakthrough therapy called Micro-Chinese Medicine Hot Compress Therapy is created. As one external application of Herbal Medicine, this therapy can both reabsorb sac fluid and inactivate the cystic lining epithelial cells which are responsible for secreting cystic fluid. Finally, PKD kidney cysts can become smaller and smaller, and patients can live with their own kidneys and don’t have any symptom.

In summary

Of course, the correct dosage of niacin does help to slow down the process of PKD, even though the effect is limited. If you want to use this supplement, consult the doctor online to determine how much you can take one time.
