I was so shocked when i read your newest article on glucosamine today. I have been taking the glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM blends for quite some time because i got some pain when i did some shoulder presses. However, i thought the stuff worked because it reduced the pain and i did not feel anything again.
I got my insulin sensitivity checked 3 weeks ago because i am planning to do Massive Eating. This is the results: fasting sugar=5.4 mmol/L and fasting insulin at 50 pmol/L. After calculation, i got a result showing that i am insulin insensitive. AM i right?
I have a family history of diabetes (type 2) from my dad’s side. Also, i am planning of buying some of this stuff for my grandma who got osteoporosis.
After i read your article, i think i just have to dump that stuff. However, how long should i check for my insulin sensitivity again? Since now, i am insulin sensitive, i will stick to 25/45/30 ratio according to massive eating and the result is pretty good so far.
Is there any chondroitin-only-supplement without glucosamine?
What about MSM? Any thought on this?
