Be careful : Eat a healthy, well balanced diet and stay close to your ideal body weight so affected joints have less extra weight to carry around. Get plenty of rest and exercise and decrease stress be aware that many supplements interfere with or enhance effects of medications you're already taking. For example, a number of supplements increase the effects of blood-thinning medications. Check with your doc.
