Cure for Type 1 Diabetes is Discovered Right Now

There is a cure that science has been using on humans, since at least 1987, to cure type I diabetes or improve it.    As of April 1995 there have been at least 8 studies of this cure.  (Michael T. Murray, Encyclopedia of Nutrition Supplements.  Prima Publishing 1996, Page 95.)

Dr. Abram Hoffer, M.D., Ph.D., and one of the leading orthomolecular doctors in the world, describes a double blind experiment with 16 newly diagnosed, ketotic, type I diabetics, ages 10 to 35 years.  This study was done by Vague, Vialettes, Lassmann-Vague, and Valio (1987).  “One week after starting intensive insulin, the subjects were started on niacinamide (a B-3 vitamin) or placebo, 3 grams per day.   If insulin was still required after six months, the vitamin was discontinued.  Three of the treated group reached two-year remissions.  None of the placebo groups were in remission longer than nine months!  The researchers concluded: “Our results and those found from animal experiments (experiments on animals using niacinamide to prevent diabetes have been going on since the 1950’s.) indicate that, in type I diabetes, niacinamide slows down destruction of B-cells and enhances their regeneration, thus extending remission time.”

Niacinamide is a B-3 vitamin.  It has been shown to be a cure in some cases of type I diabetes.  It has a greater chance of success when it is started as soon as possible after type I diabetes has been detected.  In other studies some newly diagnosed type I diabetics have experienced complete resolution of their diabetes with niacinamide supplementation.

In the spring of 1993, researchers started a large multi-center study involving 18 European countries, Israel, and Canada to follow up on these preliminary findings.  Other clinical trials are also in progress or have been proposed.

The progress of the new studies seems to be going slowly. However, even with the great tragedy type I diabetes brings to the diabetic and loved ones, this writer is not sure that the niacinamide studies will conclude soon.  The reason is niacinamide is a natural substance and it is inexpensive.  There is no profit incentive and this can often lead to studies moving slowly and often with great resistance from the establishment.

There is something newly diagnosed diabetics can do right now, besides waiting for these studies to end.  The FDA, under certain conditions, allows the use of medications for other uses than the ones approved by the FDA. The main condition is the medical literature must show the effectiveness and safety for the other uses not approved by the FDA.  This means that doctors could start right now administering niacinamide to type I diabetics if they concluded there were sufficient studies already existing showing its effectiveness and safety.

Type I diabetics would need to see doctors with strong nutritional background or orthomolecular doctors.  Orthomolecular doctors use mainly natural substances and are strong in nutritional science.  There is a listing of orthomolecular doctors on the web site

The type I diabetic could work with doctors strong in nutrition to slowly build up their dose and monitor their medications in conjunction with the niacinamide supplementation.  The studies in children used up to 100 milligrams to 200 milligrams per day.  Find a knowledgeable nutritional doctor.  Let him determine the literature on niacinamide and see if he can begin to administer niacinamide treatment for the type I diabetic.  He will probably start doses off slowly and build them up.  He will probably closely monitor medications in conjunction with the niacinamide.  Usually divided doses are the most effective method to use supplements.

The longer the type I diabetic waits to start niacinamide treatment, the studies seem to indicate the smaller chance he has to improve or go into remission.  Perhaps it is in the type I diabetic’s best interests to find a knowledgeable nutritional doctor and find out if niacinamide treatments might potentially be a cure or improve their diabetes.

We mentioned Dr. Abram Hoffer, MD, Ph.D., in this article.  He is considered to be the leader of orthomolecular medicine.  Orthomolecular medicine is a system of medicine practiced by medical MD’s throughout the world.  It uses mainly natural substances, non-toxic, and safe in a wide range of dose.  Dr. Hoffer annually hosts an orthomolecular conference.  It features keynote speakers.  Dr. Hoffer regularly speaks on schizophrenia.  Dr. Hoffer uses niacinamide in his treatments for schizophrenia.  He notes that niacinamide doses that are too high in adults usually result in nausea.  Doses of niacinamide that are too high for children usually lead to loss of appetite.  Consider reducing doses if these symptoms appear.

Note – When you take a high dose of a B vitamin, this may deplete other B vitamins, since the B vitamins work together.  Consider supplementing 1-2 capsules of B50 (this contains 50 mg of each B vitamin) along with the niacinamide.  The high dose of niacinamide by itself might deplete several other B vitamins in your body.

Dr. Bob had an expression that might relate to this article.  He often said, “go with the flow and contribute to the music of the motion.”

Note – In order for these anti-aging ideas to be successful, you must use supplements of the highest quality. Dr. Bob often said, “almost all supplement companies produce poor quality.” You can consider the product page of this web site. Almost all the products met Dr. Bob’s approval. Since he passed away we have attempted to keep the same high standards.
