Stroke Users May Take Glucosamine?
Please help me want this, yes, glucosamine is better for consumption by stroke patients
Good morning Fadama,
Actually glucosamine is one of the substances in the body that is produced naturally by the body to maintain healthy joints, but with age this substance can decrease so that the joints become prone to arthritis. The glucosamine drugs on the market are also supplements that contain this substance. In use, of course it must be in accordance with the doctor's recommendation and it is better to consult with a doctor first. Because this drug also has some common side effects such as stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, etc. In addition, because one of the ingredients for making this medicine is from shellfish, use with a history of shellfish allergy should be careful.
If you have arthritis in addition to a stroke, it's a good idea to get checked out and consult with the doctor who treats you first, because some drugs can interact with this supplement so it is necessary to also pay attention to what drugs you consume such as medicines blood thinners like warfarin, etc. So that doctors can pay attention to other drugs that are consumed and the side effects that can be caused. In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to its use in people with diabetes, high cholesterol, liver disease, cancer, asthma, etc.
This is the information we can provide, hopefully this is useful.
