Any side effects from supartz (hyaluronic acid) injections?

Any side effects from supartz (hyaluronic acid) injections?

Very rare: Supartz (hyaluronic acid) injections are a type of "visco-supplementation" treatment for knee arthritis. Side effects are exceeding rare, but any injection into the knee joint could introduce an infection or cause an inflammatory reaction to occur. I have used supartz (hyaluronic acid) in my practice for nearly 14 years on a regular basis without any documented side effects. ...Read more

Are there any side effects from switching from supartz (hyaluronic acid) to synvisc-one shots?

No: The short answer is no. As you know supartz is a five injection series. Synvisc (hylan g-f 20) one is one injection. If you are in the middle of a supartz regimen, I would not recommend a switch to synvisc (hylan g-f 20) one. Not because of side effects, but you will not be receiving suggested dose of supartz. Viscosupplimentation success is based on several factors in my experience. ...Read more

Insurance will not pay for supartz (hyaluronic acid) injections they will cover orthovisc or euflexxa which is more effective and less side effects?

Same: 'Synvisc' injections are in my experience helpful for early/ mild osteoarthritis. Whether you're insurance covers one or another type of viscosupplementation (Hyalournan) makes little difference as they are all very similar. Best of luck! ...Read more

Would you suggest to use hyaluronic acid and alpha lipoic acid supplements?

Alpha-lipoic acid: There's good research evidence for using alpha-lipoic acid in peripheral neuropathy http://tinyurl. Com/l4bvz9z, as an antioxidant, and in migraines http://tinyurl. Com/jvo6x9n -- some other uses also. Hyaluronic acid may help in osteoarthritis and aging skin, but evidence is not as robust as with alpha-lipoic acid in above uses. They are safe, but please inform your doctor you're taking them. ...Read more

Taking glucosamine chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, collagen, resveratrol supplements for back. Will taking all these together create liver issues?

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? Back pain in 28 year olds sometimes can be due to autoimmune arthritis, and the treatments available are far better than your current regimen. Glucosamine is a proven therapy, the rest are likely a waste of money. Consider getting a rheumatology opinion. ...Read more

I am taking herbal supplements fish oil, estrogen, multiple vitamin, hyaluronic acid, pumpkin seed oil. Are these safe to take with each other?

I am taking herbal supplements fish oil, estrogen, multiple vitamin, hyaluronic acid, pumpkin seed oil. Are these safe to take with each other?

Not really, but why?: Who knows? They may not even be safe by themselves, as you never really know what's in them to begin with. Why are you taking them in the first place. What are you attempting to fix, and how are you going to tell if any of them help -- what criteria are you going to use. They will commonly interact adversely with other supplements and also with prescription meds. Avoid at all costs. ...Read more

Well does any one know the side effects of using amino acid 2222 supplement?

Well does any one know the side effects of using amino acid 2222 supplement?

Should be OK.: Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. A well balanced diet should provide all the protein needed. Taking an Amino Acid supplement should do no harm, unless taking too much, or there are genetic problems (people with pku must not take phenylalanine, which is in the "2222, ") or if the product is tainted (a tainted tryptophan supplement a number of years ago caused severe health problems). ...Read more

Taking protein shakes and amino acid tabs could leads to varicoceles or any testicular issues? What are the side effects of these supplements?

Taking protein shakes and amino acid tabs could leads to varicoceles or any testicular issues? What are the side effects of these supplements?

No? But Also No Data: By law, dshea 1994, see fda.Gov, for all dietary supplements, the manufacturer/marketer/seller are exempt from evaluating or proving claims of efficacy or safety. The bigger issue, my view, is why purchase expensive processed food waste rather than cheaper real food. All meats & to a ↓ extent most above ground vegetables are ↑ protein; i.e. Large molecules built from Amino Acids per genetic code. ...Read more

Is it true that folic acid and green tea supplements help fight cervical dysplasia and HPV? Any side effects?

Is it true that folic acid and green tea supplements help fight cervical dysplasia and HPV? Any side effects?

Adjunct only: The claims about green tea are based on Petri dish work. I think it's rubbish. You will pee out any folic acid beyond that your body needs. HPV is ubiquitous but if you have dysphasia and do not comply with treatment that is essentially 100% effective if done on time, it can cost you your life. Be discerning and good luck. ...Read more
