Why should someone with a shellfish allergy be careful when taking Glucosamine?
When one is allergic to shellfish it is usually the protein (meat) that they are allergic to and not the chitin (shell) from which the glucosamine is extracted. In most cases all protein is or should be removed. It is therefore advisable for these people to monitor themselves closely when taking glucosamine and discuss with their healthcare professional.
