Howdy Al!

I have not used Vanadyl Sulfate and in light of what I read here ~ ~ I doubt I will ever do so (as I have kidney disease). It is implicated in causing kidney damage. Also according to WEBMD " . . . At higher doses, such as those used to treat diabetes, vanadium frequently causes unwanted side effects including abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, nausea, and gas. It can also cause a greenish tongue, loss of energy, and problems with the nervous system.
Vanadium is UNSAFE when used in large amounts and for a long time. This increases the risk of serious side effects including kidney damage."

There are other things to take which may be safer for my kidneys.

To your Better health!

That pretty much sums it up for me! I know that there is little info on it's long term use (strike 1). I know it is a heavy metal (stike 2). I did not know it can cause kidney damage (STRIKE 3). Thankyou James, valuable info for sure.
