Treating PKD: Could diet be the key?



Important: Any changes to your current diet, including adding supplements to your diet, should be discussed with your health care team.

Thomas Weimbs, Ph.D., University of California Santa Barbara, and his research team have discovered that diets that induce ketosis in mouse, rat and cat models slowed or reversed the growth of polycystic kidneys. Could this research be the key to slowing progression of PKD in humans? In this webinar, Weimbs discusses his research. He is joined by Neera Dahl, M.D., Ph.D., Yale University School of Medicine, to provide context for Dr. Weimbs’s new findings and give a physician’s perspective.
