Thiamine hope for kidney damage29th December 2008
Research from a team at Warwick University has shown that doses of vitamin B1 (thiamine) can reverse early kidney disease in people with type 2 diabetes.
The team, reporting their findings in the journal Diabetologia, tested the effect of vitamin B1, which is found in meat, yeast and grain, on 40 patients from Pakistan. The treatment stopped the loss of a key protein in the urine. Diabetes UK say the results are promising but it is too early for any firm conclusions.
