Patient discussion about MSM

Q. is taking glucosomine and msm good enough for me?i have problems with my left knee. i was wondering if i absolutely need to add in chrondoitin to the mix.will this add more joint support benefit for my problamatic left knee...?so far,the glucosomine and msm seem to be working pretty good but maybe things could be even better by adding in chrondoitin perhaps...?

A. I have hypoglycemia, shellfish and sulfa drug allergy and cataracts, and developed symptoms like diabetic neuropathy after taking this for over 60 days. Since learned that glucosamine is sugar and sulpha based, and chondroitan is made from shellfish, so I should not have used.
