Treating Peyronie’s with Supplements
Peyronie’s is due to fibrous tissues, like scar tissues, building up and causing the penis to bend. What drugs and nutritional products might help?
The oral treatments, including their doses, that have been tested in clinical trials, are these:
- Vitamin E – 300-400 IU taken once a day 12 g/day (24 tablets), taken in 4 divided doses (up to 20 g/day)
- L-Carnitine – 1 g taken twice daily for 3 months
- Arginine – 1 g twice per day
- Omega-3 fatty acid
- Colchicine – 0.6-1.2 mg/day for 1 week, then increase up to 2.4 mg/day
- Tamoxifen – 20 mg twice daily for 3 months
- Pentoxifylline – 400 mg three times per day
The disappointing answer is that none have been found to make a meaningful difference.
Vitamin E, Arginine and L-Carnitine, which is closely related to B vitamins, are nutritional compounds found in many food. These nutritional products have few, if any, adverse side effects.
The results of scientific studies are either negative or the studies are not large and disciplined enough for us to be confident in recommending any of these nutritionals and drugs. However, maintaining a healthy diet with adequate intakes of vitamin E and other antioxidants, as well as omega-3 fatty acids, is all around beneficial.
Vitamin E ointment helps
Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that is found in the body and is made up of 8 components including alpha-tocopherol. It is believed to play a role in wound healing and when used as a topical ointment in some cases reduces inflammation and scarring. It is an oily substance and absorbed through the skin.
While the results of scientific studies have not proven the benefits of using vitamin E as a topical ointments that are clearcut, when we treat Peyronie’s with Dual-action SONICWAVE we advocate the daily application of vitamin E ointment to the penis, on the fibrotic area.
There are many different brands of vitamin E creams and oils that can be purchase in drug and natural health stores. They cost around $5-$20 per container.
