Study results on this question have been mixed, with some suggesting possible benefit and some showing no benefit on cartilage protection: Glucosamine is one of the substances in your body that is used to build cartilage. The most common type of arthritis, osteoarthritis wears away the slick cartilage that covers the ends of your bones and helps joints move smoothly. Study results have been varied, partly because not all the studies have used the same type of glucosamine.

The broken ones hurt: Osteogenesis imperfecta patients have weakened, brittle bones. The bones break easily and broken bones are painful. A patient appearing in pain should be checked for a new fracture. A person with o.I.
