    How glucosamine supplements may increase IOP

     

    Since glycosaminoglycans are also abundant in corneal stroma, a change in their concentration could also lead to errors in IOP measurement with Goldmann applanation tonometers, the authors cautioned.

    They acknowledged that their study had a short follow-up period. And they noted that there were too few patients with glaucoma to evaluate the effects of glucosamine in this population.

    “[The] clinical implication of this finding in glaucoma patients needs further evaluation in larger studies with longer follow-up and in more relevant population,” they concluded.
