This is a friend I've had for some 5 yrs or so and she will be 93 next week....she still walks around our town and now walks with her cane, but she walks.....she's pretty amazing all in all......
Has a bridge group at her apt every thursday for 4 of us ladies and then once a month a group at her place for 8 of us......
This is remarkable for a 93 yr old.
She has been taking glucosamine/msm combo for MANY YEARS without missing a day. I believe this is saving her.
I take higher doses of MSM daily and know it helps pain but probably not doing much for joint rebuilding....
I've taken glucosamine off and on for years but mostly off as I don't know that it was doing anything and then I read it COULD raise blood sugar and triglycrides and blood pressure......so that kept me from going gun hoe wth it.....
Now I'm back on it and take glucosamine **sulfate as I've read it's the best absorption...
I will see my doctor next week for my annual check in and get some bloods done and talk to her aboutglucosamine....my glucose and tris are good, I take a BP med and don't want other health issues

Too bad we can't go in and correct a mistake on our posts....
It needs to build up in the joints to be effective.
Years ago when I saw an ortho doc for my knee, he was selling glucosamine in his office and was pushing me to buy his, and I mentioned the possible glucose increase and he didn't deny that.
I can't say if it would affect everyone, maybe not...but good to know this possibility.
I think I'll go read some glucosamine reviews and maybe alert others to this.
