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 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

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.

B vitamins, zinc, vit c can also help. ...Read more
