What is the link between Niacin and PKD? Recently, quite a number of patients have posed a similar question to us. In view of this, today we are here to introduce what Niacin or vitamin B3 can do for Polycystic Kidney Disease.
Niacin and PKD
Niacin, also called vitamin B3, has been proven to be natural and effective in some researches to inhibit the activity of Sirtl, which affects the formation and growth of PKD cysts. Besides, niacin also shows an effect on restoring kidney function. This is why more and more people with Polycystic Kidney Disease becomes so interested about this kind of vitamin.
Can niacin help cure PKD?
The answer may disappoint you. Even though niacin indeed can help slow down the progression of PKD to some extent, it can still do a lot to cure PKD or shrink kidney cyst. Therefore, if you have PKD, you can use niacin as an auxiliary treatment but not the whole. Brocoli, sweet potatoes, nuts, carrot, green peas, etc, all contains rich vitamin B3. To make you take correct amount of vitamin B3 and choose right foods, you can describe your illness condition or send your test reports to email@example.com, so we can tell you how much niacin and what foods are available for you.
How to prevent PKD from progressing to kidney failure?
It is the constant enlargement of kidney cysts that causes the decline of kidney function. From this point, the key of the whole treatment is to reduce PKD cysts and preserve kidney functioning tissues. To achieve these effects, kidney experts at PKD Clinic create Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy after tested again and again.
One effect of this therapy is to increase the permeability of cystic walls and discharge the sac fluid out of the body via blood circulation, The other great effect is to prompt damaged kidney cells for self-repair. Once all of PKD cysts are kept in small size, they can’t cause any damage to kidney inherent cells. Then, patients can live with PKD normally and healthily.

No matter how your illness condition is, remember that correct use of niacin and cyst shrinking therapy can help you get a big improvement. Never give up to live a better life.
