November 10, 2022

UCSB News Release on the presentation of the first results of the KETO-ADPKD clinical trial at the American Society for Nephrology annual conference.

A three-month clinical study on dietary interventions to help treat polycystic kidney disease (PKD) indicates that not only is dietary intervention feasible, it also appears to have resulted in beneficial outcomes for its participants. The results pave the way toward using diet as a way to effectively manage the disease, which affects more than 12 million people worldwide — more than half a million of them in the U.S. alone.
