Quercetin for Diabetic Kidney Disease
Quercetin, a supplement of a flavonoid that comes from fruits, vegetables, and is shown to be really helpful for diabetic kidney disease. Now, we do have a whole video about this, that is much longer that you can also reference. We break down the details, the doses, the studies, but quercetin you can find it over the counter.
You can use it for eight to 12 weeks in diabetic kidney disease at a high dose of four to 5,000 milligrams per day. You’d only do that for eight to 12 weeks. After that, you want to get your blood tests, see what the results are. You can use a lower dose of quercetin, 1500 to 2000 milligrams, for up to six months, and you also spread that out throughout the day.
Again, always make sure to get before and after blood work. If you wanna see the breakdown of the study and everything I talk about, check out our other video.
Quercetin has long been known as one of the best bioflavonoid in terms of its powerful antioxidant effects and the other benefits that it possesses. Quercetin contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that might help reduce swelling, kill cancer cells, control blood sugar, and help prevent heart disease. Quercetin can also help with kidney scarring. Quercetin is most commonly used for conditions of the heart and blood vessels and to prevent cancer.
Quercetin also helps with blood sugar, which is why it is so great for diabetic kidney disease. Implementing quercetin into a kidney diet may protect kidneys by alleviating renal toxicity, apoptosis, fibrosis and inflammation in a variety of kidney diseases. For these reasons, quercetin could be one of the promising drugs in the treatment of renal disorders and is why we are recommending it in this video.
