ANTIDIABETICS AND HERBAL MEDICINES OR DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS - GLUCOSAMINE +/- CHONDROITIN

In a controlled study glucosamine with chondroitin had no effect on the glycaemic control of patients taking oral antidiabetics, but one report notes that unexpected increases in blood glucose levels have occurred.
It may be prudent to increase monitoring of blood glucose if glucosamine supplements are taken. Also, if glucose control unexpectedly deteriorates, bear in mind the possibility of self-medication with supplements such as glucosamine.
