Weight and Exercise: Since you may want to limit NSAIDS due to your medical conditions, it is also important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Reducing weight will reduce the load and pain on your joints. Also, low impact exercise will build the supporting structures around the joints safely. (swimming, biking, ellipticals) Avoid treadmills.
