Glucosamine can be an issue for your Cushings horse if it is IR
Question: Is glucosamine a trigger in increasing insulin levels? I've just started my 18 yo mare on pure gluc and msm supplements. Just diagnosed with Cushings with ACTH level 75. TIA
Dr. Kellon: It can be an issue if the horse is insulin resistant. Many Cushing's horses are but you would have to test insulin to know for sure. Use hyaluronic acid instead.
