Diet and osteoarthritis


As the osteoarthritis begins to progress in my hip, the pain is becoming more constant. I have tried various painkillers (Naproxen worked to a certain degree). I am now just taking a couple of ibuprofen each day and not walking too far. I read somewhere that red meat and dairy can add to the inflammation and I've decided to follow a vegan diet for 2-3 weeks to see if this helps. I wondered if anyone had tried anything similar?
