Q. Is it safe to take Cartifix if I have diabetes?
Some early research had suggested that Cartifix might worsen insulin resistance due to the presence of glucosamine in it which can lead to an increase in blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. So do inform your doctor if you are having diabetes. But now, according to recent studies it has been seen that even though glucosamine is a type of sugar, but it does not appear to affect blood sugar levels or insulin sensitivity. However, it is advised to consult your doctor before taking this medicine.
Q. How long will Cartifix take to show an effect?
You may need to take the Cartifix for four to six weeks before you notice any improvement. If there is no change in your symptoms by that time, then it is advisable for you to talk to your doctor about other ways of managing your arthritis.
