I have read about the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid supplements for joint and skin health. Is it safe for an elder who gets 24 units of insulin injection every day, along with aspirin and high blood pressure medicine to consume Hyaluronic Acid supplement (100mg/day). Are there any potential risks or side effects?

Best to call the elder's Dr.(s) and check. You can also Google for side effects. I would not take any supplement without clearing it with all Drs that are monitoring my health with me since I have Diabetes.

You can also google it on line to check side effects and risks vs. benefits.

Someone else may respond that takes Hyaluronic Acid supps. Let's see.

I just checked it on Webmd and an artical came up that mentions to always check with a health care provider before taking these supplements especially when on medications.
You can go into the search box above your post and enter Hyaluronic Acid Supplements. All kinds of information.
