Are there any advantages for CF children when using ALVEO preparation?
Dear Questioner,
Alveo (according to manufaturer's information) is composed of 26 herbs. There are no data about scientific studies with this preparation in CF patients. Therefore it is not proven that they will improve the health status of a CF patient. The contrary could be the case: side effects and interactions of those preparation are unknown and are not carefully reported. For that safety issues and lack of data in CF patients, one could not make a recommendation for those kind of preparations.
In any case it is important, that patients should mention the non-conventional therapies they want to take or take to their CF doctor and discuss with him safety and benefit issues.
