I don't know if any of you read scientific papers, but I've been researching niacin, [vit. B 3] and along with a bunch of other papers, here is one:- sciencedirect.com/science/a...
Low-dose niacin had a low frequency of adverse effects and also improved dyslipidemia, lowered serum phosphorus level, and increased GFR in patients with CKD. Further studies are needed to evaluate the long-term effects of low-dose niacin for renal progression of CKD.
My LDL cholesterol is too high and so is my blood pressure, and my doctor is sure to say to me stop eating all those fatty foods and dairy products. The problem with that is that I don't eat any of the food traditionally known to raise cholesterol. There is some kind of link between fibre or perhaps the lack of it and what happens to the body cholesterol, and following a very strict CKD eating plan, I don't have enough fibre, therefore I aim to get soluble fibre supplement and also a low dose, and I think that might mean 100mg/day, of niacin and that should lower my cholesterol. Pointless to go to my GP and expect her to be 'on the case' as it were. I will steer the conversation in the right direction, but if she doesn't prescribe niacin or fibre supplement, I'll get them myself.
