Is L Glutamine USP advised while undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer?
one of my friends wife had breast cancer & is now taking chaemo therapy.The doctor has advised her to take 3 sachets 15 Gm each of L Glutamine USP. Instead could Nutrilite Protein Powder 2 Scoops 10Gms each which gives 8 Gms soya protein & has 9 essential Amino acids per scoop be given daily to her.Side by side can Nutilite fifiber, which contains Inuline,Partially Hydrolised Guargum & Resistant Maltodextrin be also given.
THESE ALL ARE FANCY NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT OF DOUBTFUL VALUE. YOU CAN TAKE THEM IN RECOMMENDED DOSES BUT I DONT THINK THEY WILL CAUSE MUCH HELP. TRY TO PROVIDE HER NATURAL PROTEIN RICH DIET. DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS. DO YOGA AND MEDITATION.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
