I can recommend cherries for gout. Gout is considered an inflammatory arthritide, aka an autoimmune disease where the body attacks its own tissues. As to the typical degenerative arthritide caused either by injury or by ageing, I have no recommendations.
Perhaps MSM, GLUCOSAMINE, CHONDROINTIN and SHARK CARTILAGE. Shark fin, perhaps.
I understand that arthritis can have different causes. But:
My MD says what I have is osteoarthritis. My question is how does one know the difference symptomatically? That is, how does HE know that is osteo, not rheumatic? Are there differences in the symptoms?
