Knee pain,Overweight,Weak

My mother has knee pain since last 2 years. She could barely walk. She consulted an Alopathy doctor. He asked her to reduce weight, as her weight then was 68. Since last 3 months, She started walking 6kms daily and eats only 1 chapati in dinner, only salad in lunch, a glass of milk at night, and 2 cups of tea in a day using 'sugar free'...Her weight has dropped down to 64 now. But still her knee pain didn't reduce, and She feels very weak throught the day... She had had uterus operation (removed it) due to fibroids 3 years back... She wants to decrease her weight further but feels weak if has diet as above... So please suggest me what to do...And how to cure her knee pain??? **she doesn't have any other joint pain

Hi
For reducing the weight at her age with such joint pain issues, she needs to be under the professional guidance, since now her diet is making her more weak.
You need to consult any of us personally for customized diet plan.
She can have Methi seeds, turmeric regularly, it will help to reduce pain.

Hello....... After menopause joint pain is expected because of osteoporosis... Weight reduction is good move.. She has to take care of her health also.. There are other factors affecting joint pain.... Physical therapy relives pain.. Take her to physiotherapist in nearest hospital.........
