I have arthritis in my knees and am going through a really bad and longer than usual flare up. I am wondering if losing weight would help. I am 5ft 3 and weigh approx 190lbs. I consume far too many sweets, chocolate and cake and processed foods. A few months ago I greatly reduced wheat in my diet and I feel this helps with the flare ups. Upon reflection I think my weight is a contributing factor to the arthritis because I have had flare ups after- a Zumba class, water aerobics, walking up hill in sand and kneeling down to clean a floor. The link is the pressure on my knees during these activities is far too much.
What do you think? Any advice would be appreciated 😐
