Sickle Cell Anemia Treatment

The sickle cell anemia treatment of boosting glutathione is not new. Few studies look at the direct connection of boosting blood by boosting glutathione. Much of the evidence is available in the studies where blood counts were taken.

Sickle Cell Anemia Treatment with Cysteine

Anemic patients who take various types of cysteine will typically have an increase in blood counts. There is a relationship with the intake of glutathione precursors and co-factors and the rise in blood counts.

A 1998 study found in Blood points to an interesting result of boosting glutathione. It caused a significant....
conversion of irreversibly sickle cells back into biconcave shape.

It was also shown that the glutathione precursor reduced the formation of dense cells.

Could this be a sickle cell anemia treatment for those who, facing a crisis, do not want the side effects, dangers or complications associated with blood transfusions.

Before looking at the sickle cell anemia treatment, first an overview of...

What is Sickle Cell Anemia?

Sickle cell anemia is a blood disease that affects millions of people around the world. There is no specific cure for everyone. Typically the symptoms and complications are treated. For some, bone marrow transplants may offer a cure. This is not for everyone. Now bone marrow transplants are successfully preformed with out blood transfusions. For information on the hospital and the doctor that is the leading expert, please contact the webmaster of this site.

The symptoms of sickle cell anemia vary from person to person. Some face chronic pain and or tiredness.

Managing Sickle Cell Anemia Pain

Traditional pain treatment include over the counter medicine and heating pads and increasing fluid intake. Dehydration complicates the disease and makes the symptoms worse.

The most common pain medications include acetaminophen, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Note In view of the above study it might be prudent to rethink this one. Since acetaminophen depletes glutathione and the study found that depleting glutathione resulted in a significant increase in thickening, it may not be the best choice of pain reliever.

In this regard, boosting intracellular glutathione is also an effective way to decrease pain. More on this later.

In more severe cases , narcotics such as meperidine, morphine, oxycodone, and others. (Narcotic abuse and addiction are issues that must be considered in any pain control plan.)

More severe cases involve going to the hospital to be treated.


Severe cases if sickle cell anemia may have been treated with hydroxyurea.

It is used to limit the number of of painful crises. It is a preventative treatment and not to treat the crisis.

Studies show a lot of positive benefits. It also has some serious side effects.

Blood transfusions are typically given to treat the progression of the anemia as well as sickle cell complications. An infection, enlargement of the spleen are the most common reasons. There are a number of hospitals that provide treatments that are safer than blood transfusions. This treatment, known as bloodless medicine and surgery should only be given by experienced practitioners.

The transfusions have numerous complications and side effects. In addition to blood born infections that do not have screens in place like hepatitis D, E, G, H, I, Sma1, and TT, there are over 30 disease or side effects that could result from transfusions.

Perhaps the least known but biggest offender is called immuonmodulation. This is a big word for loosing your immunity. The more blood you get the less immunity you have for life.

This creates a problem as infections are a major problem with sickle cell anemia. Pneumonia is the leading cause of death in children with sickle cell anemia. The other common common infections include meningitis, influenza, and hepatitis.

Another complication of sickle cell anemia is damage the blood vessels in the eyes. It is especially important that both children and adults get regular checkups with an eye doctor who specializes in diseases of the retina.

Risk of Strokes

Routine ultrasound scans called Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound are used to look at blood flow in the brain. This is a tool to identify those at risk.

Other Complications

There are other problems and complications. One of note is ulcers.

The Glutathione Sickle Cell Anemia Treatment

Do a search on Glutathione and Sickle Cell Anemia or any of the related complications and as the study above indicates, there is a beneficial connection when the glutathione is boosted.

It is important that you do not stop any treatment under your doctors care or augment that care with out first talking to him. Boosting your glutathione helps in many ways. In some instances, the way you boost it may be not be good for you compared to other ways.

The only way to know for sure is to talk to your doctor. If you need to find a doctor that is an expert on boosting glutathione and sickle cell anemia, please feel free to contact the webmaster for direction on how to locate a doctor in your area.

In some cases, it may be possible to arrange a consult over the phone with a doctor who is expert. In this case, the name of the consulting doctor will be provided to your doctor if one is available.

There are two ways to boost your glutathione in this sickle cell treatment. One is an all natural whey protein isolate and the other a chemical derived cysteine.

Both have been looked at in human studies. Both work. However there are limitations. To learn more you should talk to a health care professional. We have a network of such professionals who can help with blood transfusion avoidance if this is your desire.

N-acetylcysteine amide and oxidative stress in beta-thalassemia also considers sickle cell anemia.

Also regarding the sickle cell anemia treatment looked at here, the products on the market today are vastly superior to the ones used in the studies. Dosing needs to be discussed with a health care professional.

Please feel free to contact me if I can help in any way regarding this sickle cell anemia treatment.

The Way to Make More GSH For Free

Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.

Usually there is something more than just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH.

The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.

It is simple, easy, sustainable and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).

And like GSH, it will help with over 76 different diseases and conditions.
