In brief: One or two.
Unless you have primary hyperparathyroidism, which need be checked , and a low 25-oh vit d, then vitamin d3 and adequate calcium will help.
Pth drives calcium into cartilage and a factor in the dx. The only other dietary issue: iron overload, hemochromatosis, must be exclude. Nsaids with low dose Colchicine will help. But treat the underlying problem, if they can be found.
