Treating polycystic kidney disease: Could diet be the key?
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.
