For many years, scientists around the world are trying to findthe relationship between the culinary preferences of people and processes that accompany the arthritic joints. Any diet or fasting, at best, only contribute to overall improvement, but do not affect the state of the movable bone joints. Only one conclusion: the joints in osteoarthritis treatment does not imply a special diet. But some features of diet and nutrition in this disease is still there.
Osteoarthritis of the joints, or rather osteoarthritis jointslower limb, ankle, knee and hip - a disease that is most common in people who are obese. Overweight "heavy burden" falls on the bony joints, causes the destruction of articular cartilage and bone degeneration. Therefore, we can safely say that in obese patients with osteoarthritis of the joints treatment should include a diet aimed at weight normalization. Treatment of obesity and osteoarthritis starvation is only effective if the time-out of the food does not exceed days.
The development of osteoarthritis is associated with malnutritionarticular cartilage. Degeneration of cartilage is accompanied by a deterioration of its damping characteristics, reducing its durability and strength. Treatment of osteoarthritis fasting can aggravate the disease. Is stress for the whole organism and the immune system in particular, fasting can cause exacerbation of synovitis and accelerate the destructive processes in the joint.
Refusal of food can negate all the effortsTreatment of osteoarthritis, fasting will cause a growing scarcity of nutrients, so necessary for the regeneration of cartilage tissue. Finally, long-term starvation muscle atrophy accompanied fixing joint, protecting it from damage, and involved in the metabolism of the joint tissues. Reduced muscle tone and physical activity leads to circulatory deterioration and degeneration of joint cartilage.
At the end of the twentieth century there was such a thing asmetabolic arthritis or osteoarthritis and metabolic syndrome. New technologies of agriculture and food industry involve extensive use of antibiotics, hormones, preservatives and food additives that accumulate in the human body, leading to disruption of metabolic processes and the development of various cardiovascular diseases, excretory, endocrine system and the musculoskeletal system.
Violation of kidney function that occurs duethe use of products "seasoned" with preservatives, accompanied by accumulation of salts in the joints of uric acid and the subsequent development of arthritis and osteoarthritis. "Fasting" cartilage is the result of violations of the properties of joint fluid and degeneration eventually leads to degeneration.
If developed osteoarthritis joints, in the treatmentmust necessarily include meat consumption limit (up to 50 grams per day), with the exception of food processed meat products. Culinary processing meat requires decoction, stewing, roasting, steaming and grilling.
Contrary to popular belief thatfoods rich in collagen are useful for patients with diseases of the joints, no jelly, no pig ears and tails are not able to prevent starvation in osteoarthritis cartilage. Rather, they harm health because they contain large amounts of fat. By the unwanted category includes and broths, containing a large amount of extractive substances, including chemicals released from the meat.
For patients with osteoarthritis is important to observe a one-time 5-6diet, limit the use of salt and 5 g per day, to exclude products of "fast food" category, and carbohydrates, fatty meals. It is recommended to increase the use of various cereals, unrefined vegetable oils, green vegetables, unsweetened fruit and berries.
When obesity is important to gradually normalize weightbody, without it can not be an effective treatment of osteoarthritis. Starvation this issue is not solved, it is important to completely change eating habits, otherwise after a sharp restriction in the diet the weight comes back again, and even with the addition.
