Glutamine - Vitamin for Myopathy: You can benefit from nutritional supplements and physical therapy to avoid overuse of steroids and other medications that have side effects. Glutamine is an amino acid that can increase muscle function in critically ill patients. It is needed to produce protein and muscle mass. This amino acid is present in most animal food sources -- from meat and poultry to dairy foods and eggs. To combat myopathies, however, you may need additional supplementation in the form of L-glutamine.
Health Warning: Consult your doctor before taking protein supplements to prevent further complications.

Always seek professional medical advice before taking herbal medications
