Kevin, I find that cutting everything except meat and veggies is the best way to find out what is really causing the problem. However, i would only do this if you can get all grass-fed and organic foods. Try going meat and veggies with plenty of fat (preferably of non-dairy animal origin, hence the grass-fed rec.). I'm willing to bet this will get you where you need to be. I find that nuts and fruit can both have milder, but similar effects as grains and legumes if consumed in too great of quantities.

Kevin,
If it is viral and you don't want to be on conventional antivirals, shoot me a PM and we'll talk about your other options.

Anyone hear about studies that suggest glucosamine may promote insulin resistance over time?

For about a year my right knee has been crackling when i do squats or go up stairs. There is no pain while doing those things but i did notice a bit of pain while down on my knee when i was looking for something under the bed. I remember banging my knee really hard about 2 years ago but didnt notice much until i started hearing the crackling and noticed it was tender when down on my knee this past year.

I was thinking of trying some G+C+MSM...how long would a person need to stay on that?

Michael,
If you try that combo, give it two months before really assessing the results. It would be smart to record a pain scale over several days before beginning and then do the same at the end of two months. If you don't notice improvement, then those aren't your answer.

If the G+C+MSM help, you'd likely want to be on them for good. You might be able to reduce your dose over time to get the minimal amount that does the maximal good, but it's pretty much a long-term thing.

With a lot of joint cracking, the first thing I always suggest is to get off the nightshades, if you aren't already.

Dr. G, do you feel that prolonged use could possibly cause some insulin resistance or side effects?

I have no idea. I do prefer MSM to the gluc/chond combos though.

Speaking of nightshades and arthritis...I just did something on Leaky Gut Syndrome...as that is where it all starts for the most part.
