Doctor Andreeva named anti-inflammatory foods that protect against arthritis

Studies have shown that 15 percent of the world's population over the age of 30 suffer from osteoarthritis.

Arthritis is a common disease that affects the joints. Depending on the type you have, it can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness, as well as mobility issues.

While the disease is generally considered a disease diagnosed in older people, shocking new research has shown that in around the world, people in their 30s, 40s, and 50s are also at high risk of being affected.

Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, affects 15 percent of the world's population over the age of 30, according to a study. This is due to factors such as increasing life expectancy, population growth and obesity.
Data show that in 1990, 256 million people worldwide suffered from osteoarthritis.

But by 2020, this number has risen to 595 million – an increase of 132 percent. It is estimated that by 2050, about one billion people worldwide will suffer from osteoarthritis.

“Osteoarthritis occurs when the protective cartilage at the ends of bones breaks down. This causes pain, swelling, and problems with joint movement. Bone growths can also develop, and the area can become red and swollen,” says physician Irina Andreeva, especially for MedicForum.

While the exact cause of osteoarthritis is unknown, a number of risk factors are thought to increase, including:

  • Joint injury
    • Joint injury
    • Age
    • Family history
    • Obesity

    Therefore, to prevent or alleviate symptoms Doctor Andreeva recommends measures such as regular exercise, losing weight if you are overweight, and wearing suitable shoes. Diet can also play a role.< br>
    “When it comes to relieving joint pain through a holistic diet and exercise, there are a few guidelines that you can find helpful. In terms of nutrition, it's mostly about cutting down on pro-inflammatory foods, and including anti-inflammatory foods can play a significant role in promoting joint health,” explains the GP.
    She recommended seven anti-inflammatory foods to help relieve arthritis symptoms.

    This is:

    • Turmeric
    • Ginger
    • Green leafy vegetables
    • Berries
    • Fatty fish (like salmon and mackerel)
    • Walnuts
    • Flaxseed.

    She also urged people to drink plenty of water for the same reason.

    “Drink enough water throughout the day to keep your joints well lubricated. Moisturizing is essential for joint health and can help reduce stiffness and discomfort.”
    The most common form of arthritis is arthritis of the knee.

    Six signs of knee arthritis:

    • Stiff knee
    • Swollen knee
    • Painful knee
    • Screeching when bending the knee
    • Difficulty bending the knee
    • Pain in the joints when the weather changes.
