Quick links for you on the arthritis story:
Mayo Clinic link to alternative treatments for osteoarthritis:
Link to the Arthritis Foundation:
And some more on Glucosamine and Chondroitin, now. The Mayo Clinic link above really does an excellent job of breaking down the sum total of the research.. which is what doctors try to consider when making recommendations. BUT, maybe you remember this 2006 study:
Well, chances are what you remember actually isn't the study, but rather how the lay press played it up (OH NO! IT DOESN'T WORK.). Anyway, it's worth bringing up briefly here just to say that it is one in a number of studies. It's a decent study too.. but as one of my doctor friends like to remind me: "One study does not a recommendation make". As the evidence I showed you above points out-- the sum total of the research out there still suggests that these two supplement may help you. Like anything, it won't work for everyone. But between the Mayo Clinic link above, the Arthritis Foundation link here: http://www.arthritis.org/general-medication-questions-1.php#6, and the doctor I spoke to.. I feel pretty good about it.
