What supplements or vitamins would help Dupuytren's disease?
Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

What symptoms are you presently having? What treatment have you been given till date and what were the results?
I have done an extensive review of the National Library of Medicine and the largest database of natural medicine/herbal products available and found there is no scientific evidence that any vitamin or supplement is going to be effective at treating this condition.

There are a number of surgical and minimally invasive procedures that can be used including relatively new injection techniques. Here is an excellent article that looks at the various options.
