There is currently no good evidence that inhaled MgSO 4 can be used as a substitute for inhaled β 2 -agonists. When used in addition to inhaled β 2 -agonists (with or without inhaled ipratropium), there is currently no overall clear evidence of improved pulmonary function or reduced hospital admissions. However, individual study results from three trials suggest possible improved pulmonary function in those with severe asthma exacerbations (FEV1 less than 50% predicted). Heterogeneity among trials included in this review precludes a more definitive conclusion. Further studies should focus on inhaled MgSO 4 in addition to the current guideline treatment for acute asthma (inhaled β 2 -agonist and ipratropium bromide). As the evidence suggests that the most effective role of nebulised MgSO 4 may be in those with severe acute features and this is where future research should be focused. A set of core outcomes needs to be agreed upon both in adult and paediatric studies to allow improved study comparison in future.
There were 16 girls and 11 boys. Median (interquartile range) age was (-) years, follow-up duration was (2-) years. Symptom scores (4 vs. 3; P = ), oxygen saturation (95% vs. 97%; P = ), pulmonary function tests (FEV1: 82% predicted vs. 83% predicted; P = ), sputum neutrophil ratios (% vs. %; P = ), TNF-alpha (58 pg/mL vs. pg/mL; P = ) and IL-8 ( ng/mL vs. ng/mL; P = ) levels in induced sputum were similar before and after 12-week withdrawal of inhaled steroids. However, the number of patients with bronchial hyperreactivity increased (37% vs. 63% of patients; P = ) and neutrophilic apoptosis in induced sputum decreased (% vs. %; P = ) after withdrawal.
2 weeks after I started that product I added one more product for my breathing and the Doctor told me to nebulize it 4 times a day. The results were felt almost immediately. I was astonished at how fresh the air felt once again (like when I was 21 lol) I also joined this company as it is free to join through December 30 ( and I also get a discount). It is also a precursor to glutathione. This product is a miracle for me. I no longer require rescue inhalers every 6 hrs., no steroids or steroid inhalers! If I have to use my rescue it’s 1/2 dose watered down with hypotonic sea water, and now, most days, I don’t even need it. I can exercise. I am breathing at night, sleeping, no anxiety and this is honestly what helped me the quickest! This helped me more than any natural product I have ever tried in my life. I also wanted Inhaled Glutathione which is available at http:// and other compounding pharmacies. My naturopath told me that she used it for asthma and it didn’t work for her. It works wonders for some however. I now believe that a precursor to stimulate the glutathione in my own body is most effective. You can purchase glutathione but it doesn’t as your body will simply digest it and it will be eliminated. Too many studies have been done on the subject. I even took NAC supplements but they didn’t work at all. Here is the site for the spray, please read the testimonials. I hope it’s ok to put the web site on here. If not, please excuse me. I just want everyone with this horrible illnes to get free from the devastating side effects of feeling like your suffocating all the time. Here it is: http:///balance
