Glucosamine Chondroitin made without shellfish

I went to see a doctor about knee pain. He suggested that I take glucosamine chondroitin. Since I have an allergy to shellfish, is the glucosamine chondroitin made without shellfish as effective? What are the positives and negatives of taking this supplement?

Re: Glousamine Chondroitin made without shellfish

I was unaware that they made Glucosamine without shellfish. It helps alot, but it also makes my blood sugar go crazy.

Re: Glousamine Chondroitin made without shellfish

My DH uses glucosamine with condroiton and he swears it is the best thing ever for his joint pain, and much better than glucosamine alone. I didn't know supplements were available that didn't come from shellfish either, but I suspect it may be an artificially made type instead but it would certainly be worth a try to see if it helps. If you don't notice an improvement then at least you tried.
