A 31-year-old member asked:
At an age of around 30, is it too early to be suffering from degenerative joint disease in the knees?

See below: Yes. It is not impossible, but certainly far from the norm for a 30 year old to have djd.

Maybe not: Don't know how old you are but early injuries sustained in trauma/accidents over time can lead to degeneration of the joints. If you are still under 25 then you need to look for other problems. Keep your joints limber with exercise, stretching, eating well and lots of water.
