Glucosamine chondroitin taken with food

Common Questions and Answers about Glucosamine chondroitin taken with food


1137779 tn?1281546105 I'm lying here all snuggled up in bed and doing my shopping online, and I just wondered what everyone else takes in the way of food and vitamin supplements? Are there any supplements that you feel may be beneficial for your condition/s? Any that are a waste of money?
Avatar n tn Can I perhaps supplement it with additional glucosamine (no chondroitin)? Maybe the chondroitin is upsetting his stomach. I've ordered Si Maio San to start with and will slowly introduce the other recommended Chinese medicines above one by one. Can he continue to take Forsythia 18 indefinitely? It seems to be normalizing his inner ear equilibrium and balance but he's only taking half the recommended dosage.
Avatar f tn You could also start her on Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplements, and make sure her food is top quality. Those changes may not reverse any real damage to her cartilage and joints, but may help slow degeneration down. Another possible reason for her crying could be because either: it hurt her to get out to pee/poop....or because she just craved a little extra love and cuddles because she felt unwell? Did she cry more at night, for instance when left alone on her bed?
6669309 tn?1462651742 Hi. Arthritis is very common in older dogs and the longer dogs live the more common it is becoming. Nutritional supplements Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate are two substances that have fast become the standard treatment in canine age-related arthritis. These are often sold as a single combined substance in good pet shops and quality supermarkets. Alternatively, just look up "Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate for dogs" on Google and you should find a supplier.
Avatar m tn She may need an anti-inflammatory drug, but you could certainly start her on a Glucosamine/Chondroitin supplement (I'm not precisely sure of the dosage per pound of the dog's weight, I can't quite remember, but years ago I started my dog on Glucosamine and Chondroitin, and worked out that for her weight -28lbs- 500mg Glucosamine, and 200mg Chondroitin was the correct maximum dosage for her.
Avatar f tn uk/health/pet-health-information/arthritis-in-dogs/ It certainly won't do any harm to start her on Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplements. The dose would be 500mg Glucosamine for every 25lbs of weight....and 200-400mg Chondroitin. A little vitamin C is also recommended because it helps the dog's body make use of the Glucosamine and Chondroitin. Omega 3 oils are necessary too for joint health. Salmon oil is good but there are other sources too.
Avatar f tn If you are going to use aspirin, be sure to give the lowest recommended dose. Ask your vet to determine the lowest correct dose according to your dogs weight. Give with food. Avoid Aspirin with caffeine. Make sure, that if your dog is currently taking any medications, the aspirin will not interact with the medications.
Avatar n tn I know all about the glucosamine (which she gets 2xs a day in her food and I know about the fish oil (which I will start today) but that all takes time to kick in. What can I give her in the meantime for pain without resorting to going back to the Rimadyl or the Deramax?
Avatar n tn In the meantime, you can try an enteric coated low-dose aspirin tablet (80 mg like they sell for heart patients, but be sure you get the enteric coated), once a day with food. If the glucosamine works, then you can discontinue the aspirin after possibly as short a time as a few days. If your dog stops eating while on the aspirin, then discontinue the aspirin immediately, because that means it is irritating the dog's stomach.
6036178 tn?1378542762 I wonder if there is a healthier alternative like how Glucosamine + Chondroitin help the joints there has got to be something natural that helps muscle inflammation I would think. Maybe check out a health food store and see what they have to say.
Avatar n tn We bought a bassett hound and mini schnauzer 12 and 14 yrs ago. Sadly, we had to put our old bassett down in October. Now the 14 yr old schnuazer, Einstein, has been having "off" days since shortly after losing our bassett. He is generally a feisty little character, but he is experiencing days where he lays arround mostly and I notice he has rapid breathing. My husband wanted to forewarn me, he found him laying outside on the patio, on his side with his back legs twitching....
125112 tn?1217277462 I was first using the combo of glucosamine/chondroitin. I tried 3mo of Sam-E. It was horribly expensive then, & has more studies on it now since it was touted as a mood-inhancer for anxiety/depression like rx's. It has a chemical that interferes w/ some of the many anti-depressants in use & then has side effects. It can also alter some blood tests depending on dose & labs don't have the data from records. It happened to me w/ liver function being off for no reason.
460185 tn?1326081372 When I first got her (rescue) she was on regular canned dog food (Pedigree or Winalot) with store-bought mixer. She never got table scraps. At first she had these cysts more often. Then when I changed her food I noticed fewer of them occurring. But there were other changes in her life. When she came to live with me her life changed in many ways, she spent more time running outside, and other changes. So it's hard to know what relates to what. She is 11 now. In excellent health so far.
Avatar f tn Even without plaquenil, you can feel good joint wise if you take the Celebrex and CHONDROITIN AND GLUCOSAMINE. Those are joint meds. They work very well. NO SIDE AFFECTS as far as I know. Give it a try and go on the Gluten free/Casien free diet and I bet you'll feel AWESOME. If not, it was worth a try! Right? Doesn't cost any extra, you don't have to buy the plaquenil, you won't feel weak or have heart issues, unless there's another cause for it....
Avatar m tn I had also stopped taking my supplements during that time, such as multi vitamin, fish oil, glucosamine chondroitin and calcium because I didn't want to carry a bunch of pills around for 2 weeks. When I returned from vacation, I started back up on the supplements. 4-5 days later, I started experiencing those wierd symptoms of blurred vision, eye & head pressure, being tired, etc. I just looked at the multi vitamin and it has iron in it of 18 mg.
Avatar f tn Many of us find that FT4 has to be close to midrange and FT3 has to be in the upper half to upper third of range (upper third especially when any meds with T3 in them are taken) before we're truly asymptomatic. I had a similar experience with cholesterol...doing everything "better" and having cholesterol spike 100 points. I was taking a glucosamine/chondroitin supplement at the time for my joints.
Avatar n tn He's been on zd for about 6-9 months before he ate regular dog food with a mixture of human food to, they say it's not the food, they did the allergy panel and he was only allergic to fleas and some cheese mold or something. I dont have his records on file so I don't remember what the results were exactly. We do the flea preventative year round and when he's gotten bit by flea the rash is usually not bad......
1358341 tn?1282213443 -NOW Foods-Glucosamine Sulfate OR -NATURAL FACTORS-MSM joint formula capsules with Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondroitin Sulfate, and MSM acute stage 500mg day than reduce down to 125mg for long term use. Sorry I can't offer you any advice on Renal KS, Vitamineral or Renalzin I'm not familiar with these at all. Please keep us posted on how your kitty is doing, we are all worried parents here.
Avatar n tn Number 1 is to stop drinking( 2 drinks aday),which I have been doing for about 5 years now. I have been taken omega3/omega6,,Centrum multivitamin and Glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM. Not because of my HCV,this is something I've been doing for years (healthnut). Do taken these supplements put undue stress on the liver or make my condition bad??
Avatar n tn I am truly amazed by the results. I have tried many over the counter Glucosamine/Chondroitin formulas to no avail. My mobility is already significanty better, and best of all I do not feel exhausted from being in pain all the time. I do not know what helps with pain relief in this formula. But I am extremely thankful. I can't find Flexprotex in my local drug store. I found it at an online store after seeing the commercial.
2121656 tn?1395678349 You feed half and half the dog's regular food with the green beans. 4 cups is a lot of food but again, what is the breed and age? And no reason to feel stupid as we were all first time dog owners ourselves.
19691093 tn?1488197669 ) --Rear leg popped out of joint twice soon after we got him. (Been taking a Hip + Joint supplement of Glucosamine, MSM, Chondroitin for years, and greatly improved his joints) Blood tests were taken on December 19, 2016, and we were told Chronic Kidney Failure Creatinine: 2.4 BUN: 46 Phosphorus: 6.3 Sodium: 147 Potassium: 5.2 Amylase: 1593 RBC: 6.0 Calcium: 11.8 WBC: 13.4 Our vet has prescribed Royal Canin Renal Support F diet, and we give him the dry kibble.
Avatar n tn Hi! As to your question about taking something for your RA and other osteo issues? the best thing I can think of is a combo of Glucosamine&Chondroitin, the G&C with MSM is even better. My mother has bad RA and she can tell a difference even if she gets a lower dose. Unfortunately with this, don't get the real cheapies, there's a difference. has a good, moderately priced one and you'll find others at the health food store or online.
Avatar f tn Because my arthritis has got worse (again) I have also started a few days a ago Jointace Original high strength with chondroitin, glucosamine which also contains Vits D3, C, B12, minerals and ginger extract as well as Magnesium. Have only just read the ingredients after I took the Magnesium tablet, hope I haven't overdosed? Also contains B12 and I have some sublingual nuggets that I have been taking, so don't know if I should take these now or not.
Avatar m tn Breyers chocolate ice cream, mexican food with soy meat, veggies. I just found a new soup and sandwich restaurant and their food is GREAT! Nice hot bowl of soup and a great big fat greek salad still tastes very good. I still find that fruit juice is very tasty and have that alot.
Avatar n tn Trying to address it with Glucosamine Chondroitin, Sam-e, excercise, walking, etc. Nothing seems to help for too long. It's just there and some days, worse than others. I still have days that the pain is agonizing, but I keep trying to move, not always successfully. The good news is that I DO have much more energy than I did on tx. We have new addition to our family, a one-eyed shih tzu we rescued from the pound. Connor and all the other grandchildren are great.
Avatar m tn Calcium is hard for our bodies to assimilate and calcium citrate is more easily absorbed than the carbonate variety. Make sure to take with food to increase the production of stomach acid to break it down. Avoid caffeine for one hour before and after as it can inhibit absorbtion. Take a supplement that also contains magnesium and vitamin D. Fosamax is not such a good thing on tx as we already have stomach problems from the drugs and it can cause esophageal bleeding.
Avatar m tn Of course, if you're heart healthy and don't mind the prospect of adding yet another med to your medicine chest, you could ask your doctor about E.D. meds. One popular one can be taken with food, in effect for 36 hours, vs another popular one which cannot be taken with food and is in effect for only 4 hours. They're Expensive but both can be readily split/crushed (which means it's usually far cheaper to buy the highest dose and split/crush them and then use the minimum that does the trick).
1916673 tn?1420236870 I am not sure how much longer she can live with such little food intake. I take her to the vets for bloods on Thursday. What should I ask?
Avatar m tn I drink chamomile tea to help with my palpatations. Sometimes when they are really bad you can steam a few cabbage leaves in the water you use to make the tea. It dosn't taste really good but works great! Peppermint tea is also calming. Don't stop your cardio!! You don't have to run, brisk walking works good too. (This is from Bottom Line's Healing Remedies) This remedy is recommended for people who have a history of heart problems - right before going to bed, take a 10 minute footbath.
