I finally went back to my calendar and counted up. This is my 34th week on the program. That's approximately eight months.
I have read that it takes six months or so for glucosamine to have an effect on joints. That is, for it to start rebuilding the joint, to some extent. Is this true? My memory is that there have been actual studies that show joint regeneration but is my memory wrong?
If it is true than what I have noticed in the last several weeks can probably be attributed to rebuilding. That would account for the lessening of pain overall, my ability to take on stairs without so much pain.
I'm going to hunt down the facts now.
