Does any one know Lumbar discogram & intradiscal injections of glucosamine and dext

rose ?
My Pain Management doctor wants me to do these procedures in three months, he thinks I am not a good surgical candidate but still have right leg pain now . I knew discogram but don’t know why need to inject glucosamine and dextrose at same time . My doctor also wants me to do an arterial Doppler of the right lower extremity. I knew this is a test of blood pressure It is usually ordered to see if there is a lack of blood flow through my legs
Now I have two question as following,
1)I knew discogram can diagnose my lumber disc decease, but have injection of glucosamine and dextrose any serious side effect need to be concerned?
2)If I got a positive test result when I done arterial Doppler test, can this result negative the diagnosis which leg pain caused by disc herniation or support this diagnosis?

had herniated disc in L5 s1 five years ago, have
had persistent right leg until now.
have Osteoporosis, subacute thyroidits.
