Peyronie's Disease & Vitamin E

Have you tried or thought about taking Vitamin E to treat PD?

Since it has a low cost, and few side effects Vitamin E has been a commonly prescribed oral treatment for Peyronie's Disease (PD). However, the evidence related to the efficacy of Vitamin E in PD is limited and of poor quality.

Unlocking the Potential of Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that may help reduce free radical damage and slow the aging process of your cells. It is a fat-soluble nutrient found in many foods and in supplements.

When it comes to treating PD, Vitamin E is used as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Additionally, it is thought to reduce collagen deposits within the tunica albuginea.

Early trials of Vitamin E in the treatment of PD reported a reduction in curvature along with pain relief and an improvement in sexual function. Unfortunately, in these trials the number of patients treated was quite low so there are concerns about the validity of the treatment.

Evaluating the Efficacy of Vitamin E in Peyronie's Disease

Placebo-controlled trials have shown limited evidence for Vitamin E over placebo in PD, including pain relief, when compared to a control group.

The use of Vitamin E has also been tested in combination with other agents with conflicting results.

In conclusion, despite its wide use, the evidence related to the efficacy of Vitamin E in PD is limited and of poor quality.

It should also be noted that elsewhere in medical research there is a lack of proven uses for vitamin E aside from treating vitamin E deficiency, which is a rare condition.
