Is it safe to take glutathione if I am on dialysis and have no kidneys?

by Pam
(Louisville, KY)

I am on dialysis and had to have my kidneys removed. I would like to get off a sleep medication that they put me on and an anxiety medication. I was told that a steady diet of glutathione could settle my nervous system and help me do this.

I have been taking it for a week and I have noticed that I am retaining fluid and sick to my stomach. My doctor said it was okay, but then he said he didn't know and would not allow it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Dear Pam,

Thanks for your great question. I'm not sure from your inquiry which product you were taking. If you were taking glutathione pills, they likely are having no effect on you.

If you are taking a product that raises your glutathione, this will only have good and positive effects on you and your health. There are no negative side effects to raising your glutathione.

Perhaps your doctor is unfamiliar, or otherwise concerned. If you would like to take Immunocal to raise your glutathione, you can, even without kidneys, as long as you are not allergic to specific milk proteins or on immunosuppressive drugs due to an organ transplant.

Your doctor may wish to view the PDR listing for Immunocal here, which is a listing in his doctor's Drug Book, which will show him that raising your glutathione can only be beneficial for you and cannot harm you.

Immunocal is the most effective, safe, and natural way to raise and sustain your glutathione.
