Knee Osteoarthritis: A low-carb diet may relieve symptoms


Living with a long-standing condition such as osteoarthritis can disturb many aspects of a person’s life. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It is often recognized as a degenerative joint disease, which leads to the slow breakdown of the bones and cartilage within a joint.


In Knee osteoarthritis: A low-carb diet may relieve symptoms , Ana Sandoiu states, “knee osteoarthritis, in particular, affects about 10 percent of men and 13 percent of women ages 60 and above”. Pain is the most distressing part of osteoarthritis, affecting patient’s quality of life and the ability to carry out daily routines. Ana Sandoiu writes that researchers found that maintaining a low carb-diet can help to relieve some of the symptoms patients’ experience. “Every three weeks, Sorge and colleagues analyzed the participants functional pain- which is pain associated with daily task...”Diet will never cure pain, but our work suggests it can reduce it to the point where it does not interfere with daily activities to a high degree”- Robert Sorge, PH.D.

Although many researchers have revealed that a change of diet can reduce pain, there are also other options for patients who struggle with diet and the use of medication. Arthritis typically affects the knees, hips, and hands triggering symptoms such as pain, stiffness, swelling, and limited mobility. There are other forms of alternative medicine that can help with these symptoms.
