Taking glucosamine chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, collagen, resveratrol supplements for back. Will taking all these together create liver issues?
What is diagnosis?: That's always the most important place to start. Have you had an evaluation for cause of back pain with an allopathic doc, or a rheumatologist?

Glucosamine is a proven therapy, the rest are likely a waste of money. Consider getting a rheumatology opinion. ...Read more

Also, since no third party testing of their product is required - the ingredients listed don't even have to match what is in the bottle. Wish I had a better answer. .. Good luck! ...Read more

Lack of evidence: There is no hard conclusive evidence that they work. Anecdotes do not count. However, if the diagnosis is osteoarthritis, especially of the knee or shoulder, I usually have patients give glucosamine a three month trial as glucosamine is very safe (unless shellfish allergy). If it does work, it works within three months. Less problems than with prescription medications. ...Read more

But in reality when it comes to these things more is dangerous in almost all instances. So when a doctor hears a question like yours the red flags fly to full mast and worry begins to appear. The best advice I can give is to follow the recommended. ...Read more

So it can help you pain and reverse some of the chronic damage. You can find this in the health food store. I researched, and is commonly used in dogs. ...Read more

While not,,,,: Studies are very divided whether effective or not, but the target treatment is meant for osteoarthritis of a joint.

So there would be no benefit, whatsoever. ...Read more
