Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Glutathione is made up of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamate, and glycine. It is made up naturally in liver.

It is taken in two forms: intravenous or oral. Both Glutathione and Collagen have to taken with caution in patients of liver and kidney disease Collagen can cause hypercalcemia which may adversely effect kidneys. So it is advisable to take these drugs only after thoroughly
consulting your doctor and under his guidance.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
