I asked my Mums renal physician whether it was worthwhile starting her on K2. I told him that research showed it rapidly and significantly REVERSED arterial calcification in rats. I told him that I understood that the rats metabolized K2 differently to humans but that it wouldn't hurt to give it a go. He just poo pooed the idea.

I don't know if he thinks that the K2 is contraindicated in renal failure (maybe it's cleared through the kidneys) or whether he is simply resistant to alternative treatments. I'll have to clarify this with him.

He's in for a shock if he thinks I'm going to drop the idea unless he gives me some good reasons not to try.

Regards

Chirley
