Glucosamine is a dietary supplement used by millions of people. Current production of glucosamine is derived from shellfish, which can cause an allergic reaction in some people. Glucosamine, a sugar produced in the body and found in small amounts in foods. Glucosamine is a small molecule. Just remember glucosamine will make you sick if you are allergic to shellfish. Glucosamine sulfate as a dietary supplement comes in many forms, including glucosamine HCL or glucosamine hydrochloride may increase the risk of developing insulin resistance and could decrease the metabolic actions of insulin. Although glucosamine and Chondroitin sulfate are bio-chemically classed as carbohydrates (sugars), the body is not able to break them down into glucose, so these compounds do not raise blood sugar by providing an additional source of glucose. However, many factors can affect insulin secretion and blood glucose levels in diabetic patients, and we recommend that individuals with diabetes check their blood glucose levels frequently when initiating glucosamine into their regimen. High dosages of glucosamine may cause gastric problems, nausea , diarrhea, indigestion, and heartburn. Glucosamine should be taken with meals to help reduce these problems.

Glucosamine is technically a form of an amino sugar that plays a major role in cartilage formation and repair. Glucosamine stimulates the production of water-binding glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, two essential building blocks of cartilage and also inhibits the production of chondrocytes, enzymes that break down cartilage.

Glucosamine side effects

There are no known side effects with glucosamine, but you should be aware:

  1. If you are allergic to shellfish, be careful taking glucosamine. Glucosamine allergies are caused by proteins in shellfish (not chitin) which is a carbohydrate from which glucosamine is extracted. Furthermore, there is no crossover between the acid derived chitin from shells and the antigens that cause shellfish allergies since the acid process required to leach the chitin from the shell strips away the carbohydrate side chains that would be antigenic. In other words, it should be safe for someone with an allergy to iodine or shellfish to take glucosamine. It is advised that if you have reactions to glucosamine to consult your physician.
  2. Glucosamine sulfate or glucosamine hydrochloride may increase the risk of developing insulin resistance and could decrease the metabolic actions of insulin. Although glucosamine and Chondroitin sulfate are bio-chemically classed as carbohydrates (sugars), the body is not able to break them down into glucose, so these compounds do not raise blood sugar by providing an additional source of glucose. However, many factors can affect insulin secretion and blood glucose levels in diabetic patients, and we recommend that individuals with diabetes check their blood glucose levels frequently when initiating glucosamine into their regimen.
  3. If you are pregnant you should not take glucosamine products.
  4. High dosages of glucosamine may cause gastric problems, nausea, diarrhea, indigestion and heartburn. To avoid this take your glucosamine with food.
