Osteoarthritis is a joint condition that primarily occurs in the elderly. It is also known as joint wear and tear. The protective layer between the joints is damaged, causing symptoms such as pain, stiffness, and difficulty moving. People who are overweight are more likely to develop osteoarthritis. There are several reasons for this, one of which is that people who are overweight put more strain on their joints. Additionally, being overweight can worsen the symptoms of existing osteoarthritis.



In cases of osteoarthritis combined with overweight, it is beneficial to lose weight to achieve a healthy BMI. A dietitian can assist by combining a calorie-restricted diet with a healthy lifestyle. Central to this is that weight loss occurs in a healthy manner, so that the new weight can be maintained in the long term. Additionally, various other health risks decrease with a healthy BMI.
