Lots of other possible conclusions. How about the simple, obvious one. That CONTINUED use of the supplement makes no difference. Says nothing about the initial changes that might have occurred.
So you didn't read my initial statement? That continued use of it did not work?
I mean obviously you can reach, but given its current status saying definitely works is huge stretch. Here is a well balanced article on it. https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/glucosamine-update/
Make sure you read the conclusion.
"Glucosamine/chondroitin might work for osteoarthritis, and might be worth trying in patients who can’t take NSAIDs, but the evidence is still far from clear. Based on the currently available evidence, I wouldn’t feel comfortable prescribing it or telling patients “it works;” but if a patient wanted to try it, I wouldn’t have any objections to a therapeutic trial. There don’t appear to be any worrisome side effects, and even if patients only had a placebo response, they might feel better."
