  • Oral hyaluronic acid supplements while breastfeeding?

    Would it be safe to take 48mg of oral hyaluronic acid while nursing a 13-month-old who feeds just twice a day? I have been prescribed this for osteoarthritis, but forgot to mention to the doctor that I am still nursing. If it does pass through to my milk, if I were to take it straight after the morning feed at 8am, would it be out of my system by the 7pm evening feed? Thanks in advance.

    Dear Sunlight, There are no data available on the transfer of hyaluronic
    acid into breastmilk, but it would be minimal to nil. The repeating
    chains can be quite large, and therefore size would prohibit any drug
    that did get absorbed from transferring into the milk compartment. It
    would not be orally bioavailable in the infant. Therefore, hyaluronic
    acid is probably of no risk to a breastfed infant. I hope this is
