Yes there is risk of osteoarthritis after age of 45. Take plenty of water and keep your body hydrated. Avoid oil,ghee and full cream milk. Daily 30 minutes walk or exercise is must. You may take homoeopathic medicines along with it which will nourish your bones and joints and will keep them healthy...
