My son have got GNC's L-arginne 2 x 500mg per day for 2 years, I wish this method was helpful with his muscle.
Yanbin did you see any improvement in your son. He was given L-arginine only or metformin also, the above study I guess was with L-arginine and metformin both. Interested in know if I can start giving to my son.
Yes very interesting. Moein can you provide info on where this trial was performed? My son already takes Metformin, but only to counteract weight gain side effects of steroids.
I had given my son this combination before he was enrolled in Myostatin trial for Pfizer because it is not allowed in the trial
I think that there was an improvement and my son was having the courage to do tasks he was not doing it before,also he was less getting tired,more energy.
I am not sure if this was a placebo effect,but I think this combination has something to do
Moen how many days did you give this combination? Did you see any side effects. Did you give the dose as L-arginine (3 x 2.5 g/d) and metformin (2 x 250 mg/d). Which brand of L-arginine you used? My son is 10 years old and not on any trial so far, hence I am very keen to start this.
Rahul, My son's doctor told me that prednisone is very important, it can extend child's ambulatory ability and prevents child's spine bend. other aux drugs just offer some auxliary effects,L-arginine too.But ,this kind of amino acid at least has no some side effcts. Has your son begun to take prednisone? his age is old enough. for his good living,maybe you sould consider my advise.
By the way, Some DMD cinical experiments show Inspra is effective to eliminate child's muscle oedema. My son took it for 25mg per day, He's more than 5 years old and 18kg weight now.
Yanbin, Thanks for your suggestion, I am giving my son Deflazacort for the last 6 months. Was considering giving L-Arginine and Metformin in addition as the results look promising.
