I came across this study in Pubmed about a week ago and decided to give it a try. So far I am about almost one week into it. I do a combination of NAC, 1200mg 3 times daily and one Whey protein shake that gives me the equivalent of at least the additional 1200mg of NAC, so far no GI issues or anything. I have not felt any better or worse, but it is still early days to make any judgement. I know the Mtor pathway can be very potent, having tried a drug called Sirolimus which works along this pathway, it was the best thing I have ever taken for my Lupus/Sjogren's to date. I did not stay on it since I am trying natural products first, if that is not possible then I will go straight to Sirolimus. BTW, I will be putting up a post also on my short experiment with Sirolimus, if anyone is interested in going that route. This is the link to the clinical trial for NAC and Lupus. There is an additional trial going on with NAC for Lupus, just check clinicaltrials.gov link below also. Hope this helps someone into more natural treatments.
If anyone is using NAC for their autoIimmune issues I would very much like to hear about your experiences and compare notes. I will be updating as I progress. Thanks all. Liz
NEW TRIAL TO BEGIN
