It takes a great oral dose to have detectable blood levels and can cause skin rashes, diarrhea, headaches, itchiness, chills and acne breakouts. We have no idea what "thyroid problem" you have, but Glutathione use can lead to serious complications (believe it or not). ...Read more

After 40 years, glutathione supplementation hasn't been shown to be good for much of anything, while evidence-based medicine would have spared you the acne scars that you report. An evidence-based holistic practitioner in your community might be a good resource for you. ...Read more

Or it can be neurological, neuropathic pain due to your comorbidities or even the brain lesion. Or vascular such as a DVT or blood clot in your veins. I would recommend that you get evaluated at your earliest convenience. ...Read more

Is glutathione injection safe?

Is glutathione injection safe?

Not great evidence: The question is, what are you getting the injection for? There are parkinson disease "doctors" who promote this scam as a treatment for parkinson disease when a recent trial did not show benefit. It is very expensive and of dubious benefit. There are a lot of sites that promote glutathione injections for other reasons...You'll notice that none of the sites are medical, and all are expensive. ...Read more
