Diacerein or a Supplement for Joint Pain? Do Natural Joint Pain Remedies Work as Well?

Which of these are the best joint pain remedies?

  • A joint supplement for joint pain, like glucosamine
  • Pain killers, or NSAIDs, like: Celebrex, aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), or naproxen sodium (Aleve)
  • Medications, like Diacerein?

To find out, researchers reviewed all clinical studies done on the effectiveness of the supplement for joint pain, glucosamine, as well as on diacerein and NSAIDS, and compared them in a "meta-analysis." (Eur J Med Res. 2015 Mar.) 1

Which was the best of joint pain remedies?

The researchers reviewed studies with glucosamine, diacerein and NSAIDs to compare them for how they improved either hip or knee pain and stiffness:

  • The researchers compared improvements in: 1) pain 2) stiffness, range of motion 3) changes in the space between the joints and 4) side effects and negative events. 

Here is what they found:

Although NSAIDs (e.g. ibuprofen - Advil, Motrin, Aleve) are THE most commonly prescribed for pain relief, they are hard on the liver, can cause internal bleeding, and increase the risk of a heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular events.

The researchers therefore ruled these out!

  • Both glucosamine and diacerein had the same effect for reducing pain and stiffness.
  • Glucosamine did show more improvement in the space between the joints (less cartilage degradation) when compared to diacerein, but the researchers said this was not a big enough, or "clinically relevant" effect. 
  • Diacerein had more "adverse effects" (intestinal problems, diarrhea) than did glucosamine.

The researchers concluded that the supplement for joint pain glucosamine worked equally well as did the medication diacerein, but found that diacerein had more side effects. 

Why a Supplement for Joint Pain vs Meds?

Why a supplement for joint pain, and not medication OR pain killers?
