Osteoarthritis(OA) at 42 years is not common. In OA, cartilage gets eroded due to various reasons. Cartilage doesn't have the capacity to heal. As a result, there are no medications that can bring it back to normal. There are many supplements but when body doesn't heal the cartilage, it's very doubtful if these supplements will work at all. Avoiding activity even if you did have arthritis is not a very good idea. The best way to deal with arthritis is to replace impact activities with non-impact activities like cycling or swimming. If at all you want to do running use the bare foot running technique. Activity will also help keep your weight under control. In terms of diet, reduce all white substances like rice, sugar, sweets. Replace with brown food like oats, muesli or brown bread, and plenty of salads and fruits.

Thanks for asking the query. Osteoarthritis is not curable. You can avoid further wear and tear of the cartilage by keeping your weight under control, staying active and being flexible. If you are playing any sports then avoid playing sports like football or basketball. Badminton or tennis played gently are good. Lastly who has diagnosed you with arthritis and how has this diagnosis been reached? It may be just a flare up of cartilage irritation. Hope this helps.
