Omega-3 Supplementation May Help Reduce Urine Protein in Type 2 Diabetics

Omega-3 Supplementation May Help Reduce Urine Protein in Type 2 Diabetics

Proteinuria is the presence of abnormal quantities of protein in the urine and is a marker of kidney damage in diabetics. A new study suggests that omega-3 supplementation may help reduce proteinuria in people with type 2 diabetes.

For their study, the researchers analyzed the results of 10 clinical trials that included 344 participants. All the trials looked at the effect of omega-3 supplementation on proteinuria in participants with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

The researchers found that omega-3 supplementation lasting at least 24 weeks resulted in significant reductions in proteinuria in participants with type 2 diabetes, compared to participants who did not receive supplementation. No changes were seen in participants with type 1 diabetes.

The study was conducted by researchers from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Chulalongkorn University. It was published online ahead of print on February 11, 2020 in the journal PLOS One.
