Osteoarthrities

Osteoarthritis is one of the most common forms of arthritis. It is a chronic condition in which the material that cushions the joints, called cartilage, breaks down. This causes the bones to rub against each other, causing stiffness, pain and loss of joint movement. Common risk factors include increasing age, obesity, previous joint injury, overuse of the joint, weak thigh muscles, and genetics.

Symptoms

Osteoarthritis symptoms usually develop gradually. At first, there may be soreness or stiffness that seems more like a nuisance than a medical concern.

Common symptoms include:
  • Sore or stiff joints - particularly the hips, knees, and lower back - after inactivity or overuse.
  • Stiffness after resting that goes away after movement
  • Pain that is worse after activity or toward the end of the day.

Osteoarthritis may also affect the neck, small finger joints, the base of the thumb, ankle, and big toe. The pain may be moderate and come and go, without affecting the ability to perform daily tasks. Some people’s Osteoarthritis will never progress past this early stage. Others will have their Osteoarthritis get worse. The pain and stiffness of more severe osteoarthritis may make it difficult to walk, climb stairs, sleep, or perform other daily tasks.

Include All Food Groups for a Healthy Arthritis Diet

Fruit- Eating variety of fresh, frozen or dried fruit daily is important, but go easy on fruit juice, which can be high in sugar. Recommended servings of fruit vary with age, gender and level of activity. For adults that can be 1½ to 2 cups per day. The recommended amount can be reached with a large banana, an orange and a ¼ cup of dried fruit for example.

Vegetables - Vegetables, especially dark green and orange vegetables, and dried beans and peas are essential to a healthy diet. As with fruit, recommended amounts of vegetables depend on your age, gender and level of activity. For adults, figure 2 to 3 cups of vegetables per day from:
  • dark green vegetables such as spinach, greens and broccoli
  • orange vegetables such as sweet potatoes, squash and carrots
  • dried beans and peas such as black beans, black-eyed peas or garbanzo beans

Whole Grains - Your daily meals should also include whole grains - foods made with the entire grain kernel, including whole-wheat flour, bulgur, oatmeal, whole cornmeal and brown rice. The fiber in whole grains makes them a better choice than refined grains, such as white flour, white rice and white bread, which have no fiber. Eat three ounces of whole grains daily from foods such as brown or wild rice, buckwheat, oatmeal, popcorn, and whole wheat bread, pasta, crackers and tortillas.

Dairy - Calcium-rich dairy products are important in a healthy diet. Choose low- or no-fat milk, cheese and yogurt. Adults need about 3 cups of dairy per day. One and a half ounces of cheese, for example, equals 1 cup of milk.

Protein - Most Americans get enough protein each day; the challenge is to choose lean or low-fat sources, such as chicken, seafood, beans, peas, nuts and seeds. Broiling, grilling or baking poultry and fish can help lessen the amount of added oil and fat in your diet.

Food and drinks to avoid with Osteoarthritis

  • Saturated fats, which are found in things like butter, lard and meats, are linked with the creation of cholesterol.
  • Trans fats, also linked to high cholesterol, can be found in some processed foods such as crackers, candies, cookies, snack foods, fried foods and baked goods. Look for the words “no trans fats” on food labels before purchasing.
  • Salt or sodium, which can elevate blood pressure, is found primarily in processed food. The Nutritional Guidelines recommend that people with high blood pressure, diabetes or kidney disorder consume 1,500 milligrams (mg) - about ½ teaspoon - of sodium each day. Everyone else should aim for 2,300 mg or less. Most Americans currently get 3,000 to 4,000 mg each day. Check food labels for sodium content before purchasing.
  • Sugars, whether added to coffee or in processed foods and sodas, are empty calories, with no nutritional value, and add calories to your daily total. As a guide, a 2,000-calorie daily diet should include about 32 grams, or 8 teaspoons, of sugar. One 12-ounce soda has 10 teaspoons of sugar.
  • Alcohol also offers empty calories. Aim for moderate alcohol intake - no more than one drink (12 ounces of beer, five ounces of wine or 1½ ounces of distilled alcohol) per day for women and two a day for men.
