Treatment

Can attacks of acute intermittent porphyria be stopped?

There is no treatment that can fully stop an attack of acute intermittent porphyria or cure it. However, removing any triggers can be very helpful. For example, stopping any medications that triggered the attack, drinking less alcohol, getting more calories, and treating any infections or illnesses can help stop the attack.
