Glucosamine for hair

Common Questions and Answers about Glucosamine for hair


Avatar f tn I take kelp tablets because I was told they are good for thinning hair. Indeed my hair has become noticeably a lot thicker since taking them. My thyroid is fine. I read somewhere that glucosamin can interfer with the absorbtion of other medicines and wondered whether it was ok to continue taking kelp and glucosamin at the same time.
Avatar m tn I stopped for a few months - and lost my leg hair again, so I guess it is going to be an ongoing process. You can get the above things online - or or any other place that sells vitamin and health supplements.
Avatar f tn However, one of the biggest drawbacks to this type of treatment is that it takes a long time, because ferritin levels must be increased gradually. Allow 2-3 months for hair to stop shedding, and 5-6 months for new hairs to become long enough to make a visible impact. Many women who want to look and feel their best are turning to all-natural remedies to treat low serum ferritin hair loss.
Avatar n tn My 8 year old golden retriever has been on deramaxx for 1.5 weeks. She has been losing clumps of hair everywhere and has started itching, something that hasn't happened before. I'll be calling the vet tomorrow.
1137517 tn?1261462732 (I know this needs work) What would you suggest that I can do different/better for the hair loss? It seems from talking to other cancer survivors that the body aches are just something that I will just have to live with - is this true. Thank you for any help and comfort you can give.

Avatar f tn Lately its to the point that the top of his rump, his tail, and the insides of his legs have lost most of their hair (though I partially attribute this to chewing.) His skin has patchy pink on it, and some scabs. I have tried to give him a bath every week to clean it up (I use oatmeal shampoo) but when I thought it had cleared up I slacked off, and it turns into this brown buildup on his skin, like skin oils mixed with dandruff and dirt.

401095 tn?1351395370 I am also very interested in how the testosterone shots go. I have thought about them for myself. it is not unusual for women to be low in testosterone. it occurs natuarlly in women too but is counter balanced by estrogen. maybe i need some of that? lol, i don't think so. i have noticed that adrenalin is great for fighting pain(as are other naturally occurring chemicals)and have often thought about getting my levels of all these chemicals checked. maybe i should. Nick.
Avatar f tn 2) Dry Eyes (mostly around 8pm at night it starts or if I have a nap I notice it when I try to open my eyes and they are stuck together) 3) Hair loss- it hasn't been as bad since I started taking high doses of Zinc but still noticeable 4) Trouble staying asleep at night- waking up very early and can't get back to sleep some nights. I feel like my heart is racing sometimes which is what makes me feel restless. It does not feel this way all of the time...just some nights and some days.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar f tn (I want a white Christmas!) I may try glucosamine. They told me my hands were too far gone for it but maybe it will help the hips, knees and ankles. I've never heard of D-Ribose. I'll look into that. I've seen capaicin but never tried it. (I have 2 different prescription creams that are for small joints. I forget the name of the first one, but it's very pricey (both are, though I am totally covered.) The second one is a compounded cream made at a special pharmacy.
Avatar m tn html i have so many of the symptoms but the one which stood out for me was Premature greying, sides of hair were grey by age of 29 Glossitis - swollen / sore tongue, geographic tongue light headedness Osteoporosis, suspected in knees Symptoms mimicking Parkinsons and MS (misdiagnosed for 10 years ) Nominal aphasia - difficulty recalling names or words Loss of appetite/weight loss Epigastric pain (poor digestion, bloated feeling after eating small or normal sized meals) Chronic fatigue Pallo
Avatar n tn A new study just published confirms high quality nutritional supplements containing glucosamine and chondroitin are the right combination for effective pain relief.
Avatar n tn 1. Unusual fatigue generally all over that does not match the amount of activity expended. Running on 1/3 - 1/2 less energy. 2. Excessive inflammation and stiffness of lower extremities from thighs to ankles. This get worse during the night and after daily 3-4 mile walks. It takes an hour of a morning to loosen up. And then, it does not fully go away. Have been walking 3-4 miles 3-5/wk over last 10 years. 3. Sudden blurring of vision over last 2 months.
Avatar n tn I am a 48 year old male being screened for Multiple Sclerosis by my Doctor Of Internal Medicine. Symptoms include: 1. Unusual fatigue generally all over that does not match the amount of activity expended. Running on 1/3 - 1/2 less energy. 2. Excessive inflammation and stiffness of lower extremities from thighs to ankles. This get worse during the night and after daily 3-4 mile walks. It takes an hour of a morning to loosen up.

Avatar m tn Since starting the Glucosamine/Chondroitin supplement, she has not even done that once! My dog weighs 28lbs and the maximum dose for her is 500mg Glucosamine and 200mg Chondroitin. I give her one capsule with the 2 combined, with that dosage every day. If your dog weighs twice my dog's weight, you could give 2 capsules (1000mg Glucosamine and 400mg Chondroitin) It is perfectly safe to give dogs capsules of this supplement prepared for humans. In fact it is cheaper.
Avatar n tn Last time I took him to a vet they told me he has flea allergies because he loses his hair on his back in the summer time. Again he is losing his hair, and it's not even hot out yet.
Avatar n tn But I know MSM will make your hair and nails grow. When I went on Plaquinel, my hair quit falling out. Lauren, thank you for your kind encoragement. You are a jewel.
Avatar n tn I was referred to a dermatologist who told me that the hair loss was due to the fact that I had been dieting. The test they ran for inflammation was on the high end of normal, but my pharmacist, said my level may have been lower, due to the fact that I religiously take omega 3. I have had problems with the cold for many years, but started having true Raynaud's "attacks" about a year ago and was diagnosed in October.
Avatar f tn It is for joint pain/support, but it also helps regrow hair and is good for asthma, arthritis, allergies and Fibromyalgia. Some people claim that it helps with headaches and heartburn. Doesn't help my heartburn - but does help me with the inflammation from Fibromyalgia.
1654177 tn?1319842094 I never did because the pain went away and apparently it takes time for the glucosamine to work. Try doing some searches and see what you come up with. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I would suggest you to clean your hair frequently with a mild shampoo(you can use the ones for oily hair) and don’t apply any conditioner on the hair.Also you can shampoo twice during each wash and apply shampoo on the scalp without piling the hair on top. In case the symptoms persist then consult a dermatologist in that case. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
Avatar f tn and having cholesterol spike 100 points. I was taking a glucosamine/chondroitin supplement at the time for my joints. I discovered that one of the main ingredients in the supplement is shrimp shells, and shrimp are high in cholesterol. I researched it online and could only find a preliminary study that found no relationshipe between the supplement and spiking cholesterol. However, I did find enough other people asking the same question that I have to think there is something to it.
460185 tn?1326081372 Is there anything we should avoid doing when breaking them? Otherwise, she is in good health except for arthritis which is being treated and she is moderately active and at the vet's two weeks ago.
217229 tn?1192766004 During tx you lose alot more, I remember me and my friend and our wives went to Sea Ranch for a few days and his hair was all over the place, poor fool. I can say that as we've been friends for over 30 years. I have geno1 and I know some of the people above had geno3 if that makes a difference, the only dif I know about is 6 month tx as opposed to my 48 or 72 upcoming weeks.
Avatar m tn are taking control of their lifes just like mines, i am now very self conscious of my looks because of this skin dissorder. so here it is well i can tell u one key ingrediant is white willow bark. it is used for hair bumps and ingrown hairs i found many links to this. its a natural form of salicylic acid. and since ur taking it internally instead of externally this might make a big difference. white willow bark was also used as aspirin before asprin ever came along.
Avatar m tn Thank you for the reply. I was thinking to go to gym and work out slowly to get back to normal as soon as possible I am also right handed so I use the right arm a lot before i couldn't carry a cup or back I try to use my left arm, I don't think there is any drug in the system anymore since i stop 2 weeks ago deca is winstrol is water base thats should be gone and deca is oil base it should be gone too but if i get tested it will show even a year later.
Avatar f tn Thanks for the good advice about caring for nails. I guess once I get on tx, I won't have any left. :-) time will tell...
Avatar f tn During treatment I had the usual sides (hemolytic anemia, hair loss, itching/dry skin/ mouth, fatigue and aches) and I also had thyroid issues (thyroiditis that caused hyperthyroidism which "flipped" to hypothyroidism). After finishing treatment the thyroid levels straightened out and all was well (or seemed so). I kept waiting to get back to the 100% energy, but only reached about 85% (which I was grateful for!
