Dupuytren~sq~s and Glucosamine/Condroitin

Just diagnosed DC, surgeon wants to operate immediately - progress has been very rapid. I am researching like mad. What lovely people you all are! I have been taking Glucosamine for some years to help with arthritis (and it does) and I started recently new pills with Condroitin. I am adding my bit to this line of thought...(It has also been one stressful bad, bad year so far....) I am going to stop the Glucosamine and Condroitin....
Best wishes to you all out there

Do the Research!

Perfidia,

You would be well advised to consider NA before you allow yourself to be cut. NA is not always the "final solution". However, it is the first line of defense.
See this web site for more info:

The link to Dr. Eaton's site will take you to the best info on NA on the web.

God Bless, Good Luck.

NA

I can strongly recommend this procedure, since it is common in France (almost any hospital will do it), and have recovered the use of both left and right hand little fingers within days of the op.
It can be done with local anaesthetic but I don't recommend it. The op was done three years ago and there has been little deterioration and no pain since then.

Dupuytrens and Glucosamine/Contritin

Terry, I have had RH palm lumps for 15 years (am 60)and LH palm lums for 10 years. Also RH foot under arch lump on tendon for 15 years. Never taken G/C. But ! My both thighs have shortened up due to stiff (?) shorter tendons,/muscles? Cannot cross legs.

G/C

Sorry to hear of your complications--in reviewing the various topics of the forum I haven't seen any reference to problems involving shortening of hip tendons/muscles. In early October I went to see Dr. Eaton for NA. As well as releasing my fingers from their contracture, he also gave shots (cortisone?) for the lumps in the palms of both hands and after three months, I have seen no further worsening of them. Also, since I discontinued taking glucosamine/Condroitin, I have seen no worsening of the lumps in my feet--I think they may have reduced slightly but at least they have not gotten worse. Because Dupuytrens varies so much among sufferers, I can't rule out that it is impacting your hips and inability to cross your legs, but I think that is probably a separate issue (Dupuytrens impacts the fascia tissues in feet, hands and sometimes penis--so the tendon problems are not likely to be affected by it). Only your doctor can really discuss this, but be leery of accepting a surgical solution if NA might be an alternative. Good luck.

G/C

I'm thrilled to have found you folks. Was diagnosed with Dupuytrens a month or so ago. I'm a 55 year old woman of northern european descent with no family history. Started taking G/C about 4 months ago for mild arthritis discomfort. Stopped taking it after two months and then at almost the same time noticed the lump on my palm. So I'm done with the G/C. I also take approximately 2,000 mg of vitamin C/day. Someone mentioned that excessive C might be a problem. I've taken this amount of C forever, and never had a problem until I took the G/C. Any thoughts on other nutritional/exercise approaches that people have found beneficial?

Seems Like we should start a Glucosamine class action suite

I also experienced an fast progression of my dupy after starting Glucosamine about 3 years ago. I am not a lawyer, but it seems like we should start a class action suite from the impact of Glucosamine activating our condition. This might get some action from the drug companies. be nice if there is a lawyer with our condition that can comment on this.

An alternative

I doubt the makers of G/C knew that it would affect DC - particularly since there is so little research done on DC they probably would not be expected to know.

There has been suggestion however, that each person who has had trouble contact the manufacturer and let them know...this way...with enough letters....they would be compelled to put a warning.

Connection w/glucosamine chon. & depression?

3 years ago Jerry wrote about the effects of G/C and C.
Why were you taking it to begin with?

Connection w/glucosamine chon. & depression?

I do not have Dupuytrens, but am having difficulty finding any information of possible side effects of Glucosamine/Condritin. Since most everyone on this site has used this, has anyone noticed feeling extremely depressed? I have been taking this for 10 days and have noticed a profound melancholy. This also happened a year ago, and I stopped taking it for the same reason, but wasn't sure if the cause was situational or had to do with the glucosamine. Since this has happened again, I feel there is a strong correlation between the mood and these pills. Not that it matters in this case, but as an FYI, I also have some Swedish/Irish blood.
