    Cholesterol levels while taking glucosamine/chondroitin

    Jlbowden answered my question on cholesterol levels increasing while using glucosamine/chondroitin by saying he has never heard of this happening. There is and article in First Magizine 3/14/11 page 42 about this and the doctor who answers questions in this article said there is a link and patients who did show increased levels of cholesterol returned to normal after stopping the supplement. Has anyone seen this article or have any other info???? Ken

    I was taking this drug supplement and my BP went up,after stopping in one day it came down from 170/81 to 120/70.
    My wife is taking it still and after reading this I will consult my blessed doctor.
    Tax on consultation has gone up after 28/02/2011 budget by 50% in rural area of mine Hosur in tamil nadu.The clinic is run by Dr.Devi Shetty of world famous hospital in Bangalore "Narayana Hrudayalay".(meaning Gods place of heart.)
