Possible Interaction: Niacin and Phosphorus, Dietary



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Limited data from pilot studies in patients with CKD stages 3-4 suggest that phosphate binders, low phosphate diets, or vitamin B3 derivatives, such as niacin or nicotinamide, may reduce dietary phosphate absorption and serum phosphate and FGF23 levels.

Dietary phosphate absorption can be moderated by emphasizing plant-based dietary choices (which provide phosphate in less bioavailable forms); avoidance of processed foods containing inorganic phosphate food additives; and by ingestion of phosphate-binder drugs, magnesium supplements, or niacin , which precipitate phosphate or suppress its gastrointestinal absorption.

Minimizing the absorption of dietary phosphate may also be helpful in this regard, particularly in renal failure, and it can be achieved with plant–based dietary choices, avoidance of phosphate additives, and administration of pharmaceutical phosphate binders, supplemental magnesium, and niacin.

We conclude that nicotinamide and PTH reverse the effects of dietary phosphate deprivation by decreasing the tubular capacity for phosphate transport.
