I Had This Issue For Years Where My Nose Was

default
Posted on Sun, 5 Jul 2020
Question: I had this issue for years where my nose was always slightly runny. Accompanying this was a slimy throat and lungs. Vitamin K2 MK-4 made my nose less runny. However, I still have phlegm in throat and lungs; Less than before, but it's still there. Increasing the dose of K2 hasn't really helped. What can be the reason for MK-4 helping my runny nose?

The reason I am asking this question is because this is a part of a larger issue I am facing which I am quite certain this is related to, and I am desperate to figure out what's wrong with me.

Brief Answer:
Vitamin K2 MK4 doesn't effect running nose.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.
Vitamin K2 MK4 is not known to have any effects on running nose, slimy throat and lungs ,not in allergies or sinusitis.
Possibly another drug helped or you were not exposed to allergens at this time when you saw improvement.
I don't think this can have effects on allergies.
Visit an allergologyst.


Hope I have answered the question.

Except, this wasn't a result of an allergy. My nose was runny constantly; Not much, but it was always a tad runny. I didn't take any other new drugs the entire period my nose went from not runny to runny, nor did I make any dietary changes; Starting to take K2 MK4 was the only thing I did.

Brief Answer:
Not related to vitamin K2 MK4.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and thank you for asking again.
I believe that improvement of running nose is just a coincidence because it can't be related to taking vitamin K2 MK4.
Vitamin K2 MK4 doesn't have any effects on running nose or nasal mucosa.
You may need to visit an allergologyst and an ENT doctor since you have been having running nose for so long.
Running nose can be related to allergies or nasal polyps.
