Can Immunocal be taken if you're diabetic, on dialysis, and lactose intolerant?
(New York City)
My cousin is a diabetic who is on dialysis right now. He is also lactose intolerant.
Also what is the difference between lactose intolerant and being allergic to milk proteins? Can they take Immunocal?
The short answer is yes, your cousin can safely take Immunocal, and he should cooperate closely with his doctor on this, as all individuals would do in his situation.
Those who are diabetic can safely take Immunocal, in fact we suggest taking Immunocal Platinum if you suffer from diabetes as there are added ingredients to help regular sugar metabolism that Immunocal does not have. You can read more about this on our glutathione and diabetes page here.
Someone who is on dialysis can safely take Immunocal, and this will help his kidney function, since healthy kidneys are normally very high in glutathione.
Someone who is lactose intolerant can safely take Immunocal, as the lactose has been removed.
The difference between lactose intolerance and being allergic to milk proteins is this: many people cannot digest lactose, the sugar in milk. This is quite common, but as the PDR mentions, which your cousin's doctor has and can refer to, Immunocal is generally well tolerated in lactose intolerant individuals because the lactose has been removed.
The milk proteins in Immunocal are very specific, and they are albumin, lactoferrin, and lactalbumin. You would know if you were truly allergic to these proteins, because you would have been allergic to your mother's breast milk as an infant and unable to breastfeed. This type of allergy is very rare.
Immunocal is the most effective, safe, and natural way to raise and sustain your glutathione.
The best way for your cousin to order Immunocal or Immunocal Platinum is on the money saving monthly autoship program. He can order 1 or 2 boxes of Immunocal Platinum per month, and take 1 or 2 pouches per day.
