Osteoartritis

Osteoarthritis is a joint disease that is especially common in older people. In a person with this condition, cartilage has worn away, which allows bones to rub together. A few common symptoms include joint pain, stiffness, and limited movement. When considering a diagnosis of osteoarthritis, the healthcare provider will ask a number of questions and may recommend certain tests, such as x-rays or blood tests.
 
Treating osteoarthritis can involve exercise, medicines, surgery, or alternative therapies. No foods or combination of foods have been shown to improve or worsen this condition. However, people with osteoarthritis should still keep their weight under control and eat a well-balanced diet. It's also important to get regular physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day on most days of the week and limit intake of alcohol, fats, and sugars.
