Maintain a Healthy Weight to Protect your Joints




MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT TO PREVENT OSTEOARTHRITIS:

 Recent evidence in 336 patients who were overweight and at risk of Osteoarthritis showed at 30 month follow up 20.2% showed loss of knee cartilage and 5.8% had rapid loss. For every one-unit increase in BMI the chances of loss increased 11%.

Yet another study highlighting the need maintain a healthy weight, with a BMI less than 25. If your struggling enlist the help of a dietitian to support you, make changes with your family and start making small changes today.  

I am here to help, and so are fellow bloggers
