Glutathione Is Bad For Thyroid
Is glutathione really bad for those with thyroid problem? My doctor has been telling me ever since to avoid it, but somehow I don't believe her.
Glutathione: Are you taking it oral or iv? In Filipines, women have been using it to whiten their skin as it blocks melanin production. 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

Hi does glutathione really make u fair. As I am fair buy face but my neck and stomach a little darker. What should I do?
There is no evidence: There is no evidence that Gltathione will make your shin fair or fairer. And your complexion being fair in face and darker below the neck is you and you have to live with it. The skin colour is what you are born with and is dependant on your genetics of your parents and ethnicity. There are creams available which can kind of Bleech your skin but I do not recommend as it is not a permanent solution ...Read more

Is it ok if I take antibiotic along with glutathione? Bec I hav ths bad acne and 1 of d doctors here says dat I shld take low dose antibiotic. TY
Sure: I'm glad you're finally being treated properly for your acne. It's a serious liability. You're an adult now & need discernment. 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
I have hyperthyroidism but in an almost normal for 4 mons I'm no longer taking medicine, I want to ask if taking Glutathione supplement will cause bad?
Check Thyroid: Check your thyroid function tests first. Many people with thyroid and autoimmune thyroid conditions are familiar with the benefits of glutathione. Glutathione is made in the body, and is a combination of three amino acids. These amino acids are glutamine, cystine, and glycine. ...Read more
I have hashimoto thyroidism, pituitary tumor, seizures, lesion on my brain and had multiple concussions. My calves are hurting bad what could this be?
Wow- a lot!: This can either be as simple as muscular if you have had any changes in excercise or even trauma (fall, seizure). 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
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
Yes, but you do not: Need to buy it from a store. Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco in any form and do not take any more than one drink on a given day. ...Read more
Ambiguous: It depends on exactly what you want to know. Glutathione does serve an important function in the body (Free radical scavenger) but such an effect has not been easy to show when Glutathione is used as a supplement or as a medication for any medical conditions. ...Read more
Stomach upset: Glutathione is usually well tolerated. Some people may have some stomach upset. Please realize that stomach acid destroys most of the glutathione you take - very little of it will ever make it into your body. Nac (n-acetylcysteine) pushes your natural pathways to make more glutathione. Nac actually does survive stomach acid and can make it into your body. B vitamins, zinc, vit c can also help. ...Read more
Glutathione is a renewing antioxidant. I give it as an I.V. push frequently.
Oral glutathione would be in a liquid and smells like rotten eggs!
For many people, taking N.A.C. (N-Acetylcholine), which is a precursor of glutathione, works great at pushing their glutathione levels. Some people really need the I.V. ...Read more
Acetylvs. Lypospheric: Regular glutathione is poorly absorbed. Lypospheric and acetyl-l-glutathione are the best choices. I haven't seen any studies that say which of those is best. Lypospheric is a gel with an unpleasant taste and odor while Acetyl comes as capsules. I don't know which brand is best but both are available from reliable companies. See http://naturedoc.

It depends on the type. The following should be avoided:
• Tyrostat (L tyrosine)
This is used only for topical consumption and not to be taken orally. There were reports that even their hair turned white and painful breasts
• Goat/Sheep Placenta Extract:
Like that of Tyrostat, this is not recommended to be taken orally. The usual complaints of users are they get pimples and they get fat. ...Read more
Fair Skin: No. It is not safe and it is not effective. It does not change your genetics. Remember you are speaking to real physicians here on line, not product pitchmen. We believe that your skin is a gift. Having 'darker' skin is not in any way a disease or medical condition. But, the wanting skin different than nature gave you is a mental health condition. We would wish for you time to love yourself. ...Read more
No: Should not be. But if you have some genetic polymorphisms, go slow or you can detox too much and make yourself sick. Nac 600mg twice daily can also naturally boost your glutathione levels. ...Read more
Glutathione pills?: You don't absorb straight glutathione orally. It would need to be IV push. Otherwise, you must be getting NAC, which is a precursor to glutathione. No harm. ...Read more
No way!: Never heard this to be an option of treatment. I would advise you to stay away from it as it is not a proven form of treatment for much of anything medically known. ...Read more
