COPD and Vitamin C
My 54-year-old dad was just diagnosed with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: chronic asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis) The Dr's ran a bunch of bloodwork and he's going to see them on 9/20. His blood pressure is normal and they think his heart's ok too. He smoked for almost 40 years. I've been doing lots of research on supplements and am wondering about sodium ascorbate. I gave him a bottle of NOW brand SA and have him taking 1/2 tsp a few times a day, haven't talked w/him about bowel tolerance yet. Does anyone know anything about COPD or lung disease and mega Vit C that you can share with me. I know he needs a lot more than the amt of vit c I told him to take but I just want to make sure it's ok (even though I know it is, iykwim). Any info would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
