Chemar Posted March 27, 2009 Report Share Posted March 27, 2009 the immunologist (and also the rheumatologist) we saw did not seem concerned about keeping my dd on Azith. long term (multiple years). I dont have research links, but will try to get them from mrsD or ask her to post about the research...but apparently there is some suggestion from recent studies that antibiotics *MAY* have negative effects on cell mitochondria. I have emphasized the *may* as I dont want to ignite panic. These are early studies I believe. I will try to get the info asap Does anyone have experience with using SAMe to help protect the liver? Maybe Chemar or Kim would know more... I know it is widely used in veterinary medicine for that (help with liver dz) purpose...don't know if human medicine has caught on yet. Maybe I will ask the immunologist about that if I remember at the next visit. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag97/june-report972.html ...that is an older article...there may be more recent stuff on SAMe and liver if you google around. SAMe is also supposed to have a beneficial effect on mood...not sure about using it in tourettes or PANDAS. Something to look into I guess. yes, samE is adenosyl methionine... my son has used it as well as regular methionine for OCD/mood. he actually prefers the regular methionine and as it is so very much lower priced, we stick with that and yes, samE is supposed to be good for liver as well http://healthlibrary.epnet.com/GetContent....;chunkiid=21460 another excellent supp for liver is Milk Thistle aka silymarin http://healthlibrary.epnet.com/GetContent....;chunkiid=21817 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
