Diabetics with bad kidneys warned off Vitamin B

According to diabetes news, diabetics who have kidney damage should beware of taking high doses of some B Vitamins due to the harm they could cause. The research was conducted by experts in Canada, and published by the Journal of the American Medical Association .
Around 40 per cent of people with diabetes in Canada will eventually develop kidney disease, research indicates. High dosage B Vitamin therapy could help to improve kidney function amongst diabetics, prior research had indicated, but this recent study shows just the opposite.
The authors of the study reportedly concluded: “Given the recent large-scale clinical trials showing no treatment benefit, and our trial demonstrating harm, it would be prudent to discourage the use of high-dose B vitamins as a homocysteine-lowering strategy outside the framework of properly conducted clinical research.”
