Managing osteoarthritis, young children & perimenopause

LauraDe Member Posts: 3

Hello everyone,

I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis last year at 44 (mainly in my knees) and feel I have not yet worked out how to manage my condition, especially juggling two young kids and a full time job. My partner is very supporting but with being busy parents, our diet, lack of exercise, sleep and time have kept me from creating a new routine for myself which, after a recent bad flare up, has become vividly apparent. To make it more complex, I'm also perimenopausal with possible endometriosis...

I go for a short walk every day to get the joints working and take vitamin D (and ibuprofen) but apart from that I really need some help from similar people, whether it's family meal ideas that include essential vitamins to help manage the condition(s), healthy food swaps for on the go, supplement recommendations, or words of wisdom to push me in the right direction. Any advice welcome :)
