I'd love to know the answer to this one, too.

I sound like bubble wrap when I get up in the morning, and if I sit for extended periods of time, my knees and back will pop pop pop like bubble wrap.

I'm too young for this!

Re: Glucosamine can make bone crack sound gone?

It is my understanding that glucosamine chondroitin works only on the cartilage that is attached to the end of each bone, but not cartilage which is between the bones. It is helpful with deterioration of the (end of bone) catilage due to arthritic changes. If, for instance, you have a tear in the knees' ACL or meniscus, it would not help.
So I guess you would have to know why your joints are popping to make the distinction. The popping may just be due to poor muscle tone, or ligament issues.
Hope this is a little bit of help.

Re: Glucosamine can make bone crack sound gone?

Here's what little I know about glucosamine/chondroitin since Dec when I had a 10 level spinal fusion. Had to be off my arthritis meds and my knees were grinding, shoulder cracking, etc. and the spine specialist recommended that I take the glucosamine/chondroitin combination, without *** due to other health problems. Took a couple of months before I could tell more than a subtle difference, but it definitely has helped.

Then, my 83 year old mother was told she needs knee replacements as she is bone on bone. She doesn't dare as she had 2 heart valves replaced this past year and they had to open her heart 2 more times due to bleeds, so another major surgery that isn't due to life threatening condition isn't in her mind. I asked her heart failure doc and the ortho about glucosamine and it was safe for her to take and the otho thought it would help as it rebuilds cartlidge. It definitely gave her relief and her knees are no longer giving her pain even when sitting. She hasn't even had to have any more injections to get relief of the pain since beginning this 4-5 months ago.

Don't recommend starting anything like this without checking with your doc, but can tell you that my doc's did recommend it.
