From America OnLine:

Could you tell me about niacinamide? Should our 5 year old be taking it? Are there any side effects? He was diagnosed with diabetes about 5 months ago.


No, your five year old should certainly not be taking nicotinamide supplements. As yet there is no convincing evidence that it does any good and, in any case, you cannot buy the pure form that is being used for the diabetes prevention study in Europe (ENDIT).
