    It's important to tell your doctor if you have diabetes and plan to take glucosamine. Some early studies suggested that glucosamine might raise blood glucose levels by decreasing the effects of insulin. However, later, more reliable studies have not confirmed that finding. To be sure that glucosamine is not having a negative effect on you, carefully monitor your blood glucose levels while taking it.
