Specific audience here. . .Posted by sherri on 7/05/98 at 22:31 (000924)
well, recall too that board posters are not normal population samples.
most of the people here that seek other like sufferers will most likely have severe cases of it.
There are some things each person can do to minimize the impact the condition will have on them, but the turth of the matter is that some people jsut get it worse than others, and it doesnt always means a diddly about age, weight, or job. I mean, sometimes young folks get it pretty bad, otehr times someone skinny may have it worse than someon heavyset. But by follwoing the general advice each person can help mimize the awful impact on their lives.
(but, sadly to say, there is still no cure for my typos....)

I have been on glucosamine and chondroitin for about 5 months. I am still slowly improving. I have had absolutley no side effects. I would strongly recommend these to anyone.

The only warning I've ever heard was for diabetics. It seems that glucosamine is an ammino sugar and diabetics should check with their Dr. before starting on it.
