Case 8: T.G. Male 68, Food intolerance
- T. G. Male, 68
- Chronic constipation and food intolerance
- 3 g per day
- Tolerance for foods improved.
Male, 68, experienced chronic constipation and intolerance of some foods, which had been attributed to deficient secretion of mucous in the gastrointestinal tract. He began taking N-ACETYLGLUCOSAMINE, 3 g per day, in 1988 and reported normalization of bowel function without the need for oil or other laxatives. His tolerance of foods improved simultaneously and he also reported that a nasal allergy improved greatly. Symptoms recurred in one to two weeks when his supply of N-ACETYLGLUCOSAMINE ran out but came under control in a week or two upon resuming N-ACETYLGLUCOSAMINE. He claims he needs at least 3 g of N-ACETYLGLUCOSAMINE per day for effective control.
