GliSODin may protect the kidneys in diabetics
Diabetes is a leading cause of kidney damage and failure. Japanese researchers tested the ability of GliSODin (called Oxykine in Japan) to protect the kidneys in diabetic animals. Giving the animals GliSODin on a daily basis protected the filtering apparatus in their kidneys (the glomerulus). The GliSODin prevented the progression and acceleration of kidney damage in the diabetic animals. The study is published in the journal Biofactors, 2005;23(2).
