I'm 23 and doctors told me my cartilage has started to deteriorate due to high sugar consumption. I've read flax seeds are good for knees and joints. But should I consume raw flax seeds or roasted flax seeds. Which one is better for me?

They can be taken in any form (you can try different ways) and enjoy the variety. Please ensure that the blood sugar is well controlled which is essential. Eat more of healthy foods (more natural and freshly prepared foods) and avoid junk and processed food and beverages. Avoid all types of stimulants like alcohol and tobacco etc. You can also take the help of physiotherapy so that you can avoid painkillers. If the pain persists then try Homeopathy as it is safe and does not cause any side-effects even if taken for long term. Homeopathy being holistic in its apprroch causes not only pain relief but also enhances immunty and general wellbeing. You can contact me for further information about Homeopathic treatment.
