I'm a 62 year old type 2 diabetic and my cardiologist want to perform a cardiac cath and install a stent if needed. I have been reading your info on Lysine and Vitamin c. I want to start taking the vitamin C and Lysine for my heart. My question is: will the lysine affect my kidneys?
What is wrong with your kidneys?? Lsyine is essential and you need at least 1 g daily to exist. You might find our forum helpful.

I will also answer specific questions via email. As far as general recommendations, I wrote a book: the Pauling Therapy Handbook! http://www.practicingmedicinewithoutalicense.com/
We also point people to this topic for basic instructions on how to gradually begin Linus Pauling's therapy and determine your vitamin C tolerance:
I have not heard of any specific problems re: lysine, but if you are Type 2 you may want to visit Thomas Smith's web site, healingmatters.com, and start with this article http://healingmatters.com/deception.htm. I always get positive feedback (lowering and control of blood sugar) from people I refer to that web site.
Curing Type 2 is important because high blood sugar interferes with the uptake of vitamin C into cells.
