What Should Women Add To Their Diets To Help Prevent Hip Osteoarthritis?


Researchers at King’s College London and the University of East Anglia have studied over 1,000 healthy female twins. The Arthritis Research UK, the Wellcome Trust, and Dunhill Medical Trust funded the study. The researchers discovered that the women who included garlic, onions, and leeks in their diets showed less evidence of early osteoarthritis in the hip joint.
Osteoarthritis affects around 8 million people in the UK and is more common in women than in men. Currently pain relief and joint replacement are the only treatments.
The correlation between body weight and osteoarthritis has previously been determined, but this study could lead to the use of diet or dietary supplements to treat osteoarthritis.
