Been doing low carb (most days full on keto) for a few months.

Have had creaky knees which hurt walking up and down stairs for a few years but they’ve got worse recently. I’ve also got elbow pain which has got much worse - hurts to change gear when driving and even pulling up my tights was painful today! It’s in both arms. I’m only early fifties!!

I’m on HRT and I take D3, omega 3, magnesium, curcumin and glucosamine supplements.

After all the YouTube videos I’ve watched claiming carbs are the root of all evil, I’m starting to wonder if this is doing me any good at all!!

Anyone else experienced anything similar? Any suggestions as to what would help?

Oh and B12 supplements too!

Maybe your HRT needs a tweak?
